"Airplane flights should be quiet" is a pretty universally accepted rule for any seasoned travelers, but we can't help but smile seeing a group of young Irish students celebrating their heritage through folk music while in midair.
A class of Irish students from St. Brendan's College in Killarney, Ireland, serenaded their fellow passengers with folk music on a Ryanair flight from London Stansted to Kerry Airport in Ireland.
