Organising events to spark the interest of the whole community in the lead-up to Christmas to help keep money in the locality – that’s what the people of Clogheen are getting up to this Christmas.

With the help of some funding from Tipperary County Council’s Christmas Retail Support Scheme, all sorts of events have been organised including a Santa dash, a shop-local draw, a night-time Christmas Clogheen loop walk, children’s art competitions and Christmas parties in the community hall for adults and children alike.
