<div style=”text-align: justify; margin-top: 0cm”><strong><span style=”font-weight: normal”>Little four year old ‘Angels’ performed at the joint opening of the IFA Live Animal Crib by Dublin’s Lord Mayor Naoise O’Muiri and the Irish Farmers’ Association President John Bryan at the Mansion House in Dawson Street this morning.</span></strong>
<strong><span style=”font-weight: normal”>The ‘Little Angels’ from St. Josephs Nursery, Morning Star Road, Dublin 8 and the Lucan Gospel Choir were present at the traditional opening of Dublin City’s only Live Animal Crib and  entertained everybody with their angelic singing of festive carols and gospel renditions.</span></strong>
The Lord Mayor Naoise O’Muiri said, “<i>I want to thank the Irish Farmers’ Association for their generous gift of the animals and their continuous care throughout their stay at the Live Animal Crib. The Crib reminds us of the simplicity of the Christmas message and it represents a small piece of the countryside in the heart of Dublin’s vibrant bustling streets. I hope that all that visit this lifelike creation of the Nativity Crib enjoy the tranquil setting and the festive spirit.” </i>
 
<strong><span style=”font-weight: normal”>IFA President John Bryan said,<i> “The Live Animal Crib at the Mansion House in Dublin is now firmly established as part of Christmas in the heart of our capital city. For almost 20 years, it has provided a traditional nativity scene which families can enjoy as part of their visit to Dublin.   I would encourage everybody to take some time between now and Christmas Eve to pay a visit”.</i></span></strong>
<strong> </strong>
<strong><span style=”font-weight: normal”>The Live Animal Crib has been a joint venture between Dublin City Council and the Irish Farmers’ Association since 1995. The Crib is a </span></strong>specially constructed, life-size stable containing a sheep, donkey and goat. The animals are brought in each morning and returned to a farm on the outskirts of the city each evening. <strong><span style=”font-weight: normal”> </span></strong>
<strong> </strong>
<strong><span style=”font-weight: normal”>The Crib is open to the public until Christmas Eve from 11am to 6pm daily (Christmas Eve 11am to 2pm). Admission is free, but any voluntary contributions from the public will go towards the Mansion House Fuel Fund, of which the Dublin Simon Community and the Vincent De Paul are the two main beneficiaries.</span></strong>
