Comharchumann Thoraí together with the local Christmas lights/decorations committee have lit up Tory Island!
Organisers launched their “Light up Tory Island Christmas 2016 campaign”, where they were seeking €2000 to go towards street lights on the East Town and West Town, along with wall decorations, wreathes, and a crib.
Their fundraiser was a huge success, earning €2,350!
The lights were switched on this weekend by the King of Tory, Patsy Dan Rodgers.
Comharchumann Thoraí say; “It’s almost 30 years since we have had this many children living on the island. We would like to make this Christmas as magical and memorable as possible for them.”
Santa will be making a special visit to Tory in his helicopter on the 23rd to meet all of the good girls and boys in advance of his visit on Christmas Eve.
