Cllr Cathal Byrne, Cathaoirleach of Enniscorthy Municipal District Council is a believer in Santa Claus and the overall Christmas theme. He told WexfordLocal.com; “Christmas will be more important this year than ever before as we have a chance to gather and celebrate it in public. I am heartened to see so many groups working together with the Council, Chamber and organisers to have Enniscorthy light up and ready for Christmas.”
Acting District Manager, Bernie Quigley is asking everyone to “come to Enniscorthy this Christmas for a magical festive time. You will be guaranteed Christmas cheer and a great offering in the Castle and indeed about the town streets”
