Christmas is in 5 days!! People are beginning their holiday travel, as glorious, emotional reunions abound. 

For December 20th's advent calendar surprise, enjoy this double Dublin Christmas homecoming. 

Watch as a West Limerick girl arrives in Dublin and is greeted by her family and the excellent band Draíoct, but keep watching to the end and you’re sure to get shivers.

Carmel O’Connor (26) traveled from Brisbane, Australia, to spend Christmas with her family for the first time in four years. So excited with the great news, the O’Connors gathered as a group, including the band Draíoct, to meet her at Dublin airport.

Little did her family know that Carmel had a surprise of her own and her family’s reaction is priceless!
