From Bally to Lis­towel and Abbeyfeale, the lights go on for sea­son of good­will

The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

ALL across the land, towns and vil­lages are light­ing up dec­o­ra­tions in that warm spec­ta­cle that can only mean the sea­son of good­will is upon us. From Bal­ly­long­ford to Lis­towel and Abbeyfeale, great crowds of fam­i­lies were out in force to cel­e­brate – not least in Bal­ly­long­ford, where the vil­lage reck­ons it can boast of the big­gest Christ­mas tree in the King­dom. Carol singing, mu­sic, danc­ing, mulled wine and prizes ga­lore com­pleted the scene in Bally. Or­gan­is­ers thanked all who sup­ported the event, in­clud­ing lo­cal busi­nesses, res­i­dents and Kerry County Coun­cil. Best of all, Santa man­aged to make an ap­pear­ance at all events.
