Too cute.

WE TOOK PART in some number of Christmas performances in our day, and yet never once did we share a stage with a fully-fledged celebrity.

And that’s because weren’t as lucky as the pupils of Rush & Lusk Educate Together National School, whose performance in Dublin Airport this morning was enough to entice Chris O’Dowd to join in.
