The Midleton Christmas Lights committee hosted a successful table quiz fundraiser in O’Meara’s Ballinacurra last Thursday 3 October.
It costs €80,000 to replace the current lighting and purchase a new tree.
The project has the backing of Cork County Council, with the local authority promising to fund half the project on the basis the public and business community raise the remainder.
A recent go fund me page established by the group has raised almost €1,000 with a target of €10,000 set.
