Christmas Video 2020


This year's Christmas video  is a special one, with the talent and voices of students and teachers interwoven throughout.  

The words were composed by Ms O'Brien and read by Abby King, Nicole Buckley, Ciara Moore, Ms Bulfin, Seán Cabida, Eoghan Casey, Aleah O Rourke, Fionn Hayes, Marc Costello and Mr Cunningham.  

The music (Ashokan's Farewell) was played beautifully by Eryn O'Leary, Nessa O'Grady and Ms Kirwin.  

Thank you to Damien O'Rourke of Cuppa Tea TV for putting the video together. 

We hope you enjoy it.  

We wish you all a healthy and happy Christmas and New Year.
