Sile Seoige (pictured) has been touring the country promoting her charity single, Maybe This Christmas and now she's inviting other top celebs to download the track and share their Christmas wishes.

"We are hoping to raise tons and tons of money for Make A Wish Ireland as they so badly need it and of course for the ISPCC Childline so they don't have to close their night time service," she said.

"The way to do it is to buy our song, which is called Maybe This Christmas, and is on iTunes and I nominate my sister Grainne Seoige, The Rubberbandits and Niall Horan of One Direction to download the track and share their Christmas wishes with us too, all in aid of some great charities," she added.

Other celebs who have given their support to the festive track include Stephen Fry, Sharon Corr and Clodagh McKenna.

The Connemara native is hoping to get the track - which she recorded with a host of familiar Irish faces - to the top of the Irish charts in time for Christmas and says she'll be promoting it right up until Santa arrives.

"It is ambitious but why not reach for the stars?

"With X Factor finishing up it will be tough, but I think it would be lovely to have an Irish song as Christmas number one," she gushed.

"I'll be doing radio and a bit of telly and really just spreading the word over the next few weeks," she added.

relax Once the promotional work for the single is done, Sile (35) will be glad to chill out for a few days over Christmas.

"It's going to be flat out now up until Christmas Day so I'll just be chilling, eating and visiting at home until the New Year," she said.
