Lusk Christ­mas cards and cal­en­dar launched

Fingal Independent - - NEWS -

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.
