The boys and girls of CBS and Presentation Convent under the guidance of Principal Mary O'Callaghan enthralled the hundreds of children and their parents with their carol singing.

Ten year old Tara and six year old Leanne Quirke pressed the switch to light up the tree and herald the arrival of Santa Claus who swapped his reindeers for the local Fire Brigade. Canon Tim O'Leary blessed the tree and wished everybody a holy and happy Christmas.
