Lusk Christmas cards and calendar launched
LUSK’S annual Christmas cards and calendars are out now, illustrated by some wonderful photographs of the historic village.
Deputy Darragh O’brien TD, launched the cards and calendar at a ceremony held in Murray’s Bottom Shop in Lusk recently.
MC for the evening was William O’connor and among those attending were local councillors, Cllr Brian Dennehy (FF), Cllr Adrian Henchy (FF), Cllr Robert O’donoghue (Lab) and Cllr Cathal Boland (NP).
Newly selected area representative for Fine Gael, Jim Monks also attended the event and said a few kind words of congratulations to the local Tidy Towns committee who achieved a fourth bronze medal for Lusk in the national competition, this year.
The Murray family were thanked for hosting the evening and providing some music and refreshments on the night.
Brian Egan was congratulated for his wonderful photographs which illustrate the Christmas cards with winter scenes of the village.
Thanks is also due to all the local businesses who supported the event and contributed to a fundraising raffle on the night.
The Christmas cards are now available, selling at €1 each and are a wonderful way to help family and friends who have left the village, taste a little bit of home as their Lusk Christmas Card drops in the letter-box of wherever far flung corner of the world they have made their home away from home.
Issuing the Christmas cards and calendars featuring photographs of the village is now a well-established tradition in Lusk and great credit goes to everyone involved in the effort each year.
The cards in particular have a global reach and will be found this Christmas on the mantelpieces of friends and former residents of Lusk all around the world.
It is a big reach for a small village but a gesture that means a lot to those who receive the cards.
