The second week of January will see Cashel’ new Christmas lights being taken down, put in their boxes and stored for the 2013 season. Meanwhile, Chamber President Sean Laffey told the Tipperary Star that he would like to thank all those sponsoring organisations who made it possible to revamp the lighting last Christmas.
“We are indebted to the South Tipperary Development Company who administered the LEADER grant. To the Town council for their generous contribution towards the lights and also to South Tipperary County Council for helping to support our Shop Local Campaign.
“We were delighted that the town’s retailers came on board with late night shopping and purchasing advertising space in the Winter Wonderland Brochure, proceeds of which went to fund the Saturday events, some elements of Santa on the Plaza, music at the Heritage Day and the Friar Street Folk and Food Market, which were a feature of the Cashel retail experience on the run up to Christmas.”
