Arklow was well represented at the Leinster House tree lighting ceremony recently as Cruinniu choir was invited to sing at the occasion.  Cruinniu members had a fantastic time at this special festive event where they had the privilege of singing a medley of carols in the grounds of Leinster House for the duration of the tree lighting ceremony.  This was followed by a reception where the choir received excellent feedback on their performance.
