New members Christmas Market
Ethna Neiland and John Mulqueen are the newest members of Wicklow and District Lions Club.
They were both made very welcome by all members at their induction ceremony on Wednesday last and presented with their official Lions badge by President Pat O’Brien who sincerely welcomed Ethna and John.
Wicklow’s Abbey Grounds will be transformed this month for the festive season.
The Christmas Market will take place on the weekends of December 8 and 9, December 15 and 16 and December 22 between 12 noon and 6 p.m.
In addition to the plentiful selection of local artisan foods, decorations, gifts and workshops, there will be an abundance of fun and sparkly activities to get young and old into the Christmas mood.
There will also be the opportunity to visit Santa in his magical Grotto.

They will also be hosting an Alpaca experience where adults and children will get a chance to mingle with all things woolly and wonderful.
