Let’s welcome Christmas 2020; Christmas lights lit up the streets of Dublin

DUBLIN: Christmas lights lit up the streets of Dublin to welcome Christmas.

An 11-year-old girl at Temple Street Children’s Hospital switched on the Christmas lights in Dublin.

The event was organised to raise money for the hospital and to promote Irish businesses this Christmas. Simon, an 11 – year – old from County Westmeet, turned the Christmas lights on this year.

From now on, areas such as Grafton Street, Henry Street, South William Street and Capel Street will be lit by Christmas lights from 7 p.m.

The streets are illuminated with more than a million LED bulbs.

On Grafton Street alone the street is decorated with three million bulbs. In total, Christmas lights have been set up in a four-kilometer radius.

Dublin Town CEO Richard Guiney said the Christmas lights were set up this year amid tough challenges in the wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic, unlike in previous years.

Meanwhile, last week the Cork County Council turned on Christmas lights in villages and towns under the name ‘A Real Cork Christmas’.
