It's 'Henry's 12 Days of Christmas'
Between now and Christmas Eve, Henry McKean will be traveling the country bringing us a taste of Christmas.
Day One: Turkey Farm
Paula and Gerard Lalor, and their daughter Rosemary, are fattening up the turkeys with apples grown in their orchard. Henry first visited in 2010 when the apple trees were planted, and now he's back for the 25th anniversary but did he survive being pecked and chased by hundreds of large birds?

Day Eleven: Nativity Play
It’s time for an another Henry’s 12 Days Of Christmas. Today Henry McKean visits a Nativity Play. Nativity Plays are in the news after a Church Of Ireland Bishop said baby Jesus appears too soon. Some schools now just offer ‘winter’ plays but in Holy Child Boys National school Larkhill Whitehall Dublin, of all religions & none, they like to keep it traditional with angels, donkeys and shepherds.
