Éist Candlelight Walk of Hope & Carlow Town Christmas Lights switch on 2018

The Éist Cancer Support Centre Carlow annual Candlelight Walk of Hope 2018 took place on Saturday 24th November, starting at 4.30pm from the Bank of Ireland, Shamrock Plaza, Carlow Town.

We walked through the Town lead by the Carlow Pipe Band, Carlow Regional Youth Services, Santa and Wibbly Wobbly Wendy to the Liberty Tree fountain for the turning on of the Christmas Lights.

Thousand people joined to candle lit walk. It is annual a really special event for the entire community in Carlow.

Santa collected the first letters at the postbox on Castle Hill, this evening before the turn on the Christmas lights.

Mayor Murnane switched on the Christmas Lights for 2018, which kick-started a month of Festive Family Fun across the county.
