Switching on of Ennis Christmas lights to be virtual this year

THE official switching on of the Christmas lights in Ennis on Friday, November 26, will now take place as a virtual event.

Clare County Council said that details of the online event will be made available soon.

In a statement this afternoon the Council said, “This decision has been taken by Clare County Council based on current public health advice and in view of anticipated numbers of up to 6,000 people attending the event.

“This was a difficult decision and Clare County Council appreciates there will be disappointment for those involved.

“Other planned events in the Christmas in Ennis programme, including the Christmas Village, Cadbury Postal Service and Retro Drive-In Movies, are expected to go ahead. However, we strongly advise that members of the public monitor all media platforms for updates in relation to the planned programme of events.”

The Council also called on the public to support the town in the coming weeks. “Please remember to visit Ennis to shop local and support local, and help to sustain employment within the local community.”
