Kilkea Castle lights up for Christmas

OVER 400 people recently gathered for a tree lighting ceremony to kick off the festive season at Kilkea Castle. Santa paid a visit to the castle and guests enjoyed treats of mince pies, mulled wine and warming hot chocolate, before viewing the tree lighting in the castle gardens. Live music in the clubhouse rounded off the celebrations. Over €1,600 was raised for the local Kilkea National School on the day, which will be matched by the Cashman Family Foundation.
