To follow up their last hit “I Wish Farranree Had A Beach” which got national exposure on 2fm, Today FM and Red FM, the kids from Scoil Iosagáin have made another anthem… This time for Christmas!
Written and recorded over 4 1-hour sessions at GMC’s weekly workshop in the school, each of the 4th class kids lays their own humour, local slang and charisma into their rap on the topic of “Santa and Christmas”.
Let’s make the 4th Class kids’ rap track the new Irish Christmas anthem by downloading it here on iTunes:

Here’s what the rest of the classes have been recording this year:
Thanks a million and Happy Christmas!
Thanks to everyone for watching and sharing these videos. I’m hoping to have a new music video done soon… on a completely different buzz.
Here’s Girl on Facebook anyway if you haven’t seen it already:
Also, over 250,000 hits on the “Give us Back Sam Maguire” track on YouTube (combining my upload with the Red FM one)… Let’s hope Cork don’t mess up next year.
GMC, Flava Floors and other local talent will be warming up for MK1 for an all ages daytime gig in Cork City hall.
Here’s the article from the Cork News:
A Cork City Council initiative aimed at providing local teenagers with a safe concert environment is to be launched next month, with a performance by X Factor contestants MK1 (above). Charlie Rundle and Simeon Dixon, are being hailed as the UK’s first mixed dubstep group. The duo will be headlining the first of four all-ages concerts- entitled BPM Clubland- at City Hall over the coming two months. The daytime event takes place on Saturday, December 15th with three more gigs planned for December 22nd, January 5th and January 26th.
Limelight Promotions, which is running the events in partnership with Cork City Council highlighted that the gigs were organised in response to a growing demand for quality events for teens in the city centre. “There is very little in the way of concerts for young people. It’s been an issue that kids don’t have a good or safe place to go, so this will be one solution,” highlighted concert promoter, Patrick Kenny.
The event will feature the same lighting and sound equipment used by Jedward in their shows, with similar special effects as seen on the X Factor. “It will create a fantastic atmosphere,” Mr Kenny added. MK1 will be performing several tracks on stage before a meet and greet and a photo shoot. Singer Tiffany Joyce who opened for Domino singer Jessie J at Live at the Marquee last summer will also perform, along with a host of local artists, including the rappers from the GMC workshops and dancers from Flava Floors Dance Studio.
Due to a number of enquiries from mothers and fathers wishing to bring their younger children (under 14s) to the show, the seated balcony has been reserved for this age group and their parents.
Tickets priced at €15 are now on sale at the ticket kiosk in Merchants Quay Shopping Centre.
