Description

Today is Naoise’s fourth birthday, but he has forgotten! The others prepare for his surprise birthday party, making cards, and a magical cake. We visit St. Brigid’s school in Maghera where there is another surprise birthday being organised – for a teddy bear! Na Dódaí play a game of ‘pass the parcel’ before reavealing Naoise’s surprise, and as the party begins, Na Dódaí sing their own special ‘happy birthday’ song for Naoise.
