Irish Cinderella

I have been asked to write a Christmas play based on the Cinderella fairy tale, but the school I'm writing it for would like the play to have a strong Irish flavour (there will be dance and music) and they want fairies in it. Unfortunately, I have trouble finding an Irish version of the Cinderella tale. It's a very archetypal story, so I'm certain there must be a version, but so far I haven't been able to find one.

If you ever read a celtic Cinderella version, could you tell me what the differences to Grimm's Tales are? The Irish fairiy tale women seem more headstrong to me than the waifs of the Grimm's Tales....

Help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Also, thank you to everybody who answered my question about how cats and birds see the world. The fanfic in question has been posted here: Part 1 and Part 2. You've been a great help. This is a splendid community! I've learnt quite a bit from other posts in this group. :-)
