There were amazing scenes on the streets of New Ross this evening as families enthusiastically gathered to celebrate the official ‘Switch On’ of the town Christmas lights for the first time in three years.

New Ross celebrity Dami Hope, fresh from the ‘Love Island’ television show, joined forces with Santa Claus to flick the magic switch in the presence of Cllr Michael Sheehan, Cathaoirleach New Ross Municipal District Council at the Tholsel bang on five o’clock, to a loud festive cheer from the large crowds.

Santa and his little helpers, elves and puppet characters from Rathnure Pantomime Society led the parade from the old Fire Station on Michael Street to the freshly erected Christmas tree at the Tholsel.

Speaking to, Cllr Sheehan said: “New Ross is open for business. Shop local. There is something for every family in New Ross,” and he urged everyone; “Come out and celebrate with us.”
