Loop Head colours at Christmas

 

Well have made it to Christmas. We hope you are all ready and organised for the big day.

A lot of us will be having a very different festive season this year. Some of us will be on our own or without our key members of the family. It is a strange one this year. We hope you will get to see someone you care about and enjoy some tasty treats. Have you decorated the house?  Both Kilkee and Carrigaholt have gone to town with the decorations this year.

Which way to Christmas?

 

There was a competition in Kilkee for the best dressed house, these are just 4 of the entrants – there were many more . .

 

And Santa came to Kilkee with the able assistance of the of the local diving club and and fire brigade. The video of when Santa came to call was made by Mary Redmond.

 

 

 

We wish you all a very happy and healthy Christmas and New Year. Keep Safe.
