Video: When Nelson Mandela danced to an Irish tune in Galway

In 2003, Nelson Mandela visited Ireland when we hosted the Special Olympics.

As part of his visit, he travelled to NUI Galway to receive an honorary degree.

The Corrs played at an event after the ceremony. Nelson Mandela was, quite literally, first on the dancefloor.

He rolled out his trademark dance – known as the Madiba Jive – for those in attendance.
