Millstreet Christmas Lights

Millstreet Christmas Lights

Christmas is fast approaching and our little elves would be delighted if you could dress your windows with fairy lights or candles to enhance our Christmas display

Don’t forget that the turning on of the Christmas Lights takes place this evening (Friday 7th) at 6:30pm in the Square.

Thank You from Millstreet Christmas Lights Committee

On behalf of The Christmas Lights Committee we would like to thank the electricians and all who volunteered their time and equipment to decorate our town for the festive season. We would also like to thank all who contributed to the Church gate collection, attended the Christmas Market and decorated their premises. We are grateful to our community and businesses for their continued financial donations. #communityspirit

Great credit and a special thanks must go to all the volunteers who were back out all around the town on Monday and Friday evenings last week, putting all the Christmas Lights back in place, and making Millstreet feel like Christmas for the coming season.

The Bear in the Square

Millstreet’s newest resident to has taken his place in the Square, and the locals have taken to him straight away! The Bear in the Square is one of the new striking features making up the Christmas Lights in Millstreet this year. Children (and not so small children) have been visiting him in to admire and have have their photo taken with him. Thanks again to all the volunteers who have been putting the lighting in place. Official turning on of the lights is after 6:30 mass on Saturday evening the 5th.

A Huge Thank You

We would like to thank everyone that helped to make the Christmas decoration of Millstreet a success this year. Many people volunteered and contributed in different ways. From the electricians, machinery operators and helpers who put up the lights to the houses and businesses and organisations who paid for the electricity, those who donated trees, money, tools, equipment and time, tea and sandwiches and everyone who spread the word – it couldn’t have happened without you and we very much appreciate your help.
