Magical Atmosphere at Millstreet’s Christmas Lights Launch 2022

It truly was a Sunday evening to remember on 4th December 2022 when a wonderful programme of festive events got underway following the official turning on of the superbly colourful Christmas Lights at The Square, Millstreet.   Little did I imagine that as MC Supreme, Noel Buckley introduced Steve Collins and his Son to turn on the Lights in 2021 that this year I would be accorded such a magnificent privilege.   Following the switching on of the Lights this year’s wonderfully Festive MC, Liam Flynn, introduced the Parade which included Millstreet Pipe Band, the Christmas Millstreet Vintage Club, Santa and superb singer, Ger O’Hanlon.  At a later point the wonderfully dedicated Millstreet Christmas Lights Committee will upload a full report on the great success of the overall event blessed with kind weather and a very impressive attendance.   Creating this spectacular Christmas magic throughout the town is quite costly and the Committee is most grateful for the support already received but would like to give the opportunity to everyone who may wish to contribute towards the special fundraising which greatly helps to defray the significant costs.   To access the link just click on the following: https://www.idonate.ie/cause/MillstreetChristmasLights Here we share four images of the event kindly shared by Photographer supreme, Neil O’Connor presently at home in West End on a visit from the USA.  We shall later feature further selections of images plus links to excellent videos by Tom Corbett and Fr. James McSweeney.  Tap on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)
