It may seem that Fiona O’Carroll is riding comfortably in her dad Brendan’s jet stream — but it turns out she was the family star first.

At the age of 10, she and her primary school class recorded a song called Christmas Wrapper. The plan was to sell the single to parents in a bid to raise funds for the school. In the end, the song landed into the Irish Top 10 singles chart.
