Almost 1,000 performers from local schools and choirs will be rocking around the Christmas tree at Dublin Airport over the next 11 days, bringing some festive cheer to passengers coming home for Christmas, visitors to Ireland and to those waiting on the arrival of their loved ones.
There will be entertainment in the Arrivals area of both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 from Wednesday, December 13
Ryan Tubridy’s RTE Radio One show will broadcast live from Arrivals in Terminal 2 from 9-10am on Friday December 22 and 2FM’s Nikki Byrne and Jenny Greene will also broadcast their show live from 10am – 1pm on the same day.
This year will be one of the airport’s busiest musical schedules ever, according to Dublin Airport Spokesperson, Audrey O’Hagan. “We have almost 40 performances taking place between both terminals up to Christmas Eve.
“Many schools, choral societies and music groups love to come back to perform for passengers every year and we’re delighted to see the return of some old friends again this Christmas.”
Rolestown NS, St Stephen’s NS, Gaelscoil Cholmcille, St. Margaret’s NS, Mary Queen of Ireland NS, Portmarnock Community School, St. Cronan’s Junior NS, Scoil an Duinnínigh and Scoil Mhuire are just some of the schools from Fingal that will entertain passengers at the airport this Christmas.
“We would like to thank the children and teachers from all those schools who have taken time out from their daily school activities to perform for passengers. All these performances bring a very special atmosphere to the airport at Christmas,” Ms O’Hagan added.
Passengers arriving at night will be greeted by the Capuchin Soup Kitchen Choir, Young European Strings, Cor Duibhlinne and Comhaltas Ceoltórí Eireann from Portmarnock, the Airport Police and Fire Service Band, Fingal Gospel Choir and the Dublin Gospel choir amongst others.
