Sharon Shannon serenades a field of cows with beautiful Irish music

If the Pied Piper of Hamelin ever needed any help gathering cows, he should give Sharon Shannon a call.

The traditional Irish music star has released a very moo-ving video onto her social media pages.

The multi-talented musician found herself in a field of cows in Dungarvan and decided to play them a tune.

Traditional music star Sharon Shannon played Irish music on her accordion to an audience of cows

Luckily, she happened to have her accordion with her and sat down to play.

She was slightly nervous at first. She looked to the camera and said: “I don’t know if they’re going to like it or not.”

She didn’t need to worry. Once she began playing, the cows nearby started to wag their tails. The cows further away heard the music and walked towards her to join in the fun.

By the end of the performance one of the cows was so impressed that it rewarded Shannon with a lick on the knee.

Shannon posted the video to her Facebook page along with the caption: “OMG! You just have to watch this! Just wait and see what happens at the end. Love and you will always receive love back! 100 fold!

It has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times. More on Sharon Shannon
