Bray People - - NEWS -

IT MAY SEEM a tad early to be dis­cussing all things Christ­massy but Christy Ka­vanagh of Newtownmountkennedy, for one, would dis­agree.

The Ir­ish Christ­mas Tree Grow­ers As­so­ci­a­tion re­cently held their AGM in the Parkview Ho­tel, but prior to that meet­ing the win­ner of the Na­tional Christ­mas Tree Com­pe­ti­tion was an­nounced.

The com­pe­ti­tion was voted for by the lo­cal peo­ple of the vil­lage, with Ka­vanagh Christ­mas Trees of Glen­dar­ragh, Newtownmountkennedy win­ing the Supreme Cham­pion cat­e­gory as well as tak­ing first place in the Noble Fir sec­tion.

The com­pe­ti­tion chooses who had the best tree in the 32 coun­ties.

Speak­ing af­ter his tri­umph, Christy Ka­vanagh said, ‘Grow- ing Christ­mas Trees is a round the year ac­tiv­ity,’ adding that his com­mit­ment to the per­fect tree was ev­i­dent in the beauty of his winning en­try.
