Friday 1st October 2010, was Ireland's National Day of Volunteering organized by Volunteer Centres Ireland (VCI). To celebrate, at 11am on the day itself, 100s of over-55s participated in flashmobs around the country.
This video captures the creative flashmob dance at Heuston train station in the capital city of Dublin.
Generally undertaken by younger people, these flashmobs comprised mostly of older people and drew attention to the significant contribution older people make as volunteers in Irish society.
Older people bring significant life experience and valuable skills to bear on their volunteering. The beneficiaries of this enthusiasm and commitment are the thousands of community and voluntary organizations older people volunteer with and the thousands more individuals and causes with which they volunteer.
