Ferns native David O'Connor is hoping to bring a bit of festive cheer to people's homes this year as he appears on a Christmas track with a legend of Irish music.
Finbar Furey invited David to appear on his song 'I'll be home for Christmas' and it was an offer he just couldn't refuse.
'When Finbar asked me to sing on his beautiful new Christmas song, it was such an opportunity, that no one in their right mind would turn it down.' said David. 'Over the few days in the studio during the recording process, it was just wonderful to watch and learn from a master craftsman.'
David hopes the song will do very well in the final build-up to Christmas. 'I love the song and its sentiment,' he said. 'I am quite sure it will touch many, many people's emotions.'
Finbar penned the song following an incident he witnessed in Dublin airport as a family was bidding a tearful farewell to their daughter. In an attempt to console them, she said 'sure I'll be home this Christmas.'
