Cllr Mary Farrell was present to assist Santa Claus turn on the Christmas Lights in Oulart with help from ‘the king of country music’ Tony Kehoe on Friday night. Security was extra tight. Santa was escorted by the local Gardai with sirens and flashing lights.
“Well done to the organising committee who did tremendous work to bring some welcome cheer and excitement to the village in these challenging times,” said Cllr Farrell.
“Santa and his reindeer have been given a COVID Exemption on Christmas Eve to make his journey around the world to visit all the boys and girls. So be good and go to bed early as social distancing will still be in place,” she added.
