Midleton Christmas Lights Table Quiz

By Seamus Whelehan


The Midleton Christmas Lights Committee is hosting a Christmas Lights Table Quiz fundraiser in O’Meara’s Bar Ballinacurra at 8:30pm on Thursday next, 3 October.

Teams of four people are €40 with some great prizes promised.

Proceeds from the night will go towards purchasing new Christmas Lights for Midleton, to help kick start the 2019 Festive season off to a glittering start.

The organising committee say “the previous Christmas lights did not cope well with the Irish climate and the increasing level of storms in recent years, so we are on the hunt for suitable new lights.”

It costs €80,000 to replace the current lighting and purchase a new Christmas tree.

The project has received the majority of backing from Cork County Council, with the Local Authority promising to fund half the cost on the basis that the public and business community raise the remainder.

For those who cannot make it on the night but wish to pledge their support can do so by donating online at www.gofundme.com/f/mmidleton-christmas-lights
