Louth County Council will continue its support of Christmas initiatives within the county with a major sponsorship involvement in Dundalk Festival of Light and Culture and Dundalk on Ice.
Dundalk Festival of Light and Culture takes place on Friday and Saturday, November 28 and 29 with a huge variety of events for all ages located in and around Dundalk town centre.
The festival will also see the official opening of Dundalk on Ice, the first enclosed real ice rink to open at the Market Square, which will be in operation for the Christmas season.
Joan Martin, Chief Executive, Louth County Council, confirmed the authority’s continued support of local initiatives concentrating on keeping seasonal spending local while creating a unique Christmas atmosphere for Dundalk people and visitors alike.
“Co-operation between local businesses and groupings, including the local authority is vital,” she said, “in ensuring that towns can put their best foot forward at this time of the year.
This is why I am happy to say that Louth County Council is once again a major sponsor in the Dundalk Christmas events programme, including the Dundalk Festival of Light and Culture and Dundalk on Ice.
“In offering the best attractions possible to our townspeople and visitors, we can play a part in keeping expenditure local and in doing so, benefit all of us beyond the Christmas season.
“Retailers, business and community groupings have been working hard to put together events that as many people as possible can enjoy and it is very important that Louth County Council does what it can to help through funding and other supports to ensure that we all enjoy what Dundalk has to offer this Christmas season.”
