Launched by Dundalk Town Council Chair Eamonn O Boyle, the preceedings got under way with a wonderful recital by the Setanta Choir before DJ Dove sounded his brand of hip music.
With the Ice Rink in the background World famous Robot TITAN amazed the crowds bringing an international feel to the evening and the square quickly filled to bring an air of christmas to the town and it’s market stalls. Restaurants provided themed evenings and Earl street and Park Street was filled with entertainers and street theatre.
The whole weekend was drawn to a close on saturday with the annual Fireworks display at Marshes bringing festive cheer to almost 5000 eager participants. Christmas has truly being stated in Dundalk.
