Cahir Christmas Lights Appeal
Finally the lights have started to be put up in Cahir. After weeks of speculation that there would be no lights for Christmas, there seems to be progress this week. A proposal by local electoral contractor Steven Flannery, tipp coco, local businesses and the festival committee ensured the town will light up for Christmas. There will be a huge deficit again so the group are encouraging anyone that can to please contribute to the Christmas lights appeal. Saturday, the 7th of December, the Tidy Towns and Meet and Train will hold a Santa Run at 11am through the town with adults competing in 5km and the kids 1km. This is a chance for members of the public to donate to the lights appeal while traders can have their donation handed into CDA for receipt. While the lights are going up their future is uncertain like other towns and is dependent on goodwill of the locals. On Saturday they will be switched on following a parade of tractors trucks and bikes illuminated after the Brass Band playing at 6pm in the square. Events from 2-5 in the hotel such as cake baking and choir and comhaltas so plenty to do this Saturday in Cahir. Please support your lights and your town this weekend and give generously on Saturday between 10 and 11 at the tourist office.
