Donegal Town’s Christmas lights display will keep shining for another few weeks to lift spirits during dark times.
The town’s lights will stay lit for the rest of January, while the Christmas tree will also stay up in the Diamond.
The decision was made by the Donegal Town Community Chamber to bring a little extra brightness to the town during a difficult time for all.
Donegal Town is not alone in keeping Christmas lights on this year. Towns all over Ireland have joined a unique ‘Keep Her Lit’ initiative led by Roscommon Councillor Valerie Byrne, who is inviting communities to leave their lights on to lift the spirits of people driving and walking through.
The Letterkenny Chamber is following a similar idea by keeping the ‘Star of Hope’ shining at the Polestar Roundabout.
