Ti­na­hely ready for Christ­mas with fes­tive lights cer­e­mony

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

THE fes­tive sea­son will get un­der way in Ti­na­hely on Sun­day, De­cem­ber 9 when the Christ­mas lights will be switched on at 4.30 p.m.

The Mar­ket square will be the focal point of the fes­tiv­i­ties with the un­veil­ing and bless­ing of the new out­door crib, carol singing and the switch­ing on of the Christ­mas lights.

And of course Santa Claus will make an ap­pear­ance with good­ies for all the chil­dren who will be greeted by his elves. Shortly af­ter­wards he will make his way to his mag­i­cal grotto in the Court­house Arts Cen­tre. Light re­fresh­ments will be served.

A spe­cial red Santa post box is lo­cated out­side the Craft Butcher’s shop and chil­dren can start send­ing their let­ters and wish-lists di­rectly to ‘Santa Claus, The North Pole’.

Ti­na­hely Christ­mas lights would not be pos­si­ble with­out the ex­tra­or­di­nary work of the en­thu­si­as­tic volunteers and com­mit­tee who put so much time and ef­fort into mak­ing all this hap­pen. This year there was a big in­vest­ment in rewiring and main­te­nance of the elec­tri­cal net­work through­out the vil­lage, along with the in­stal­la­tion of new Christ­mas lights, trees and ac­ces­sories.
