Broadcaster Sile Seoige has rallied Irish celebrities to record a charity single.

The TG4 host is leading the way with a new track, Maybe This Christmas, to help raise funds for the ISPCC Childline and Make A Wish Foundation.

Bob Geldof's Do They Know It's Christmas?, which is raising money to fight Ebola, has already made millions, and Sile will be hoping to emulate some of that success for charities at home.

A number of well-known faces from the world's of entertainment and sport have joined forces to contribute to the track, which was recorded at the iconic Windmill Lane studios.

Those who volunteered to help include singers Mary Black and Brian Kennedy, Caroline Morahan, Olympian Rob Heffernan, retired rugby star Shane Byrne, 2fm presenter Paddy McKenna, top blogger Ciara O'Doherty and RTE weather presenter Audrey McGrath.

Maybe This Christmas will be officially released next week, and Sile (35) is hoping it will raise much-needed funds for Irish charities this Christmas.

Tallafornia's Kelly also performs on the single, and said she hopes everyone will support it.

"So much fun recording Maybe this Christmas … hope you will all get behind it," she wrote online.


Sile took to Twitter to thank all of her celeb pals for lending their voices to the record.

"Thanks a million to all involved in tonight's recording," she wrote.

"Too many to thank, but truly amazed by the turnout and support. And a massive thanks to all the brilliant staff in Windmill Lane for being so lovely."
