Carolling in Kilkenny

We have been busy rehearsing our Nativity play for the past two weks. We will perform the play on Friday night in school for our parents and grandparents. Our favourite carol in the play is Mary Had a Baby. It is not a traditional Irish carol but it is a West Indian carol. We hope you like it too.
