Cahir Christmas Lights 2019

With Christmas less than 8 weeks away it is now time to turn our attention to the erecting of the Christmas Lights in Cahir.

Since the purchase of the new town lights in 2016, Cahir Development Association has covered the shortfall regarding the erecting of the lights.

The overall 3 Year Project including the purchase, erecting and taking down of the lights to date has cost €88,190.

Income received by way of sponsorship and annual donations from the traders came to €59,765. The balance of €28, 425 was paid by Cahir Development Association. This money came from the Weekly Lotto contributions.

Cahir Development Association would like to thank Cahir Credit Union, Tipperary County Council, Cahir Traders, Cahir Bingo, Cahir Meet & Train, the Craft Fair and the community for their very generous donations to date. This project would not have succeeded without your help.

With the ever-increasing costs Cahir Development Association are asking if there is any company or organisation that would be willing to be a main sponsor or joint sponsor in conjunction with the annual contributions from the traders.

We would also appreciate any clubs wishing to fundraise for the lights also.

You will all agree the town looks wonderful with the Christmas lights and Cahir Development Association wish with your continued support to be able to oversee this project for many years to come.
