Watch Michael D.'s Heartwarming Christmas Message To Ireland

"At this time, in the deepest darkness of winter, we celebrate the triumph of light over dark"

President Michael D. Higgin's has just released his Christmas message to the people of Ireland and it's wonderful.

Displaying his incredible gift for oration, the poet-president reminds us of the hardships we faced over the year, drawing particular attention to the problem of "displaced people", a problem that is greater now than at any other point in history.

But in the midst of all the darkness, he reminds us that there is much that still gives us hope... Powerful stuff.
