There will be a truly festive atmosphere in the heart of Letterkenny before Christmas as the town hosts its ninth carol trail.
And for the first time in three years, it will be an in person event as the threat of Covid has been lifted. The past two Carol Trails had been held virtually thanks to Sean Purser of Wild Atlantic Productions.
This year’s event will take place on Friday, 23 December starting at Trinity Presbyterian Church at 7.30pm.
This unique festive event is organised by Letterkenny Chamber of Commerce , Letterkenny Cathedral Quarter and Letterkenny CDP and the carol service is facilitated by Trinity Presbyterian Church, St Eunans Cathedral and Conwal Parish Church.
All are welcome to come along and participate in what should be a very memorable evening.
The carol trail will begin with Christmas Carols and readings at Trinity Presbyterian Church on Letterkenny’s main street at 7.30pm.
The group will then make its way up Church Lane in a candlelit procession which is being put together by Letterkenny CDP.
The carol service will end at Letterkenny’s oldest building, Conwal Parish Church at the top of the Church Lane for more carols and a short reading and there will be a special rendition of ‘O Holy Night’ from singer Jean Curran.
The evening will finish with tea and mince pies in Conwal Parish Church Centre.
This unique event promises will be a very special evening and hopes to give people the chance to take time and reflect on the real message of Christmas ‘goodwill to all’,.
“So, come along on Friday, 23rd December and enjoy a very special night in Letterkenny’s Cathedral Quarter.”
