The Christmas season has arrived at the Mansion House in Dublin as the live animal crib is now open for visitors.

The crib, organised by the Irish Farmers Association (IFA) and Dublin City Council, has been a tradition in Dublin for 21 years.

It will be open to the public every day until Christmas Eve, with the animals being taken home to a farm every evening.

Three and four-year-old 'angels' from St Joseph's Nursery in Dublin 8 sang Christmas carols to open the crib.

What do these people think of it?
