In the run up to Christmas, Dwayne Woods, the man behind an Irish music radio show on Dublin Digital Radio has compiled an album of Christmas songs performed by some of Ireland's best acts in aid of Pieta House.

The 15 song album "A Co Present Christmas" is made up of covers of classic Christmas songs as well as two original festive tunes and features the likes of Villagers, Maria Doyle Kennedy and Jack O'Rourke as well as some of the freshest new Irish talent.
