It was an day late but Santa arrives in Balrothery to switch on the Christmas lights.  As usual there was a large crowd to greet him and he made his way up the new steps leading him to the big switch for the countdown. On the way to turn on the lights Santa stopped off to see Mairéad Murphy Principle of Balrothery National School to present her with a cheque for €1,000 witch was raised by Knight sounds for the school building fund. Heading into the grotto Santa was greated by 100 children who waited to see Santa and tell him their wishes for Christmas eve. Audrey and Enda and the village kids entertained the crowd  with Christmas songs. A great event, well done to all involved.
