Kinsale, Sunday 1st December:
Kinsale Chamber of Tourism & Business launched its ‘Christmas Card from Kinsale’ campaign to coincide with the switching on of the lights on the new Christmas tree in the town centre.
Mayor, Tony Cierans helped switch on the lights of the beautiful Christmas tree that is now situated in the Town Council park. Santa and Mrs Claus arrived by fire engine to meet many local children to kick start the festive season in Kinsale.
For this promotion, all Kinsale Chamber members and traders will be offering visitors a free Christmas Postcard to send to family or friends anywhere in the world. They are invited to enter a competition on www.kinsale.ie to win a number of fantastic prizes, sponsored by Chamber members, over the coming months.
The photograph on the Christmas postcard was taken by John Collins and captures Kinsale in a beautiful, bright snowy scene from Ardbrack. The photograph on each postcard will change with the seasons as a new design will be distributed in January and again in March.
