Tadgh Mills, four, Blake Devereux, three, and Joshua Caerlang, three, from St Josephs Nursery school sing carols during the opening of the Irish Farmers Association Live Animal Crib at the Mansion House in Dublin.

The annual Live Animal Crib has taken up residence outside the Mansion House on Dublin's Dawson Street for its 57th Christmas.

The children from St Joseph's Nursery in Dublin 8 added their tuneful voices to those of the donkeys in the crib  for a carolling session this morning. 

The Live Crib  consists of a traditional nativity scene set among live animals in a specially constructed, life size crib.

The animals are supplied by the IFA and are brought from their farm on the outskirts of the city each morning before returning home in the evening.

The crib is open daily from 11am to 6pm until Christmas Eve when it will open from 11am to 2pm.
