Santa and his elves arrive to turn on Ardee lights
THERE was plenty of Christmas cheer on view on Friday night as Santa arrived in Ardee to turn on the Christmas lights.
A huge crowd lined the streets and were rewarded with plenty of sweets and smiles as the town got into the festive spirit.
Santa's elves proved very popular as they handed out goodies before the man of the moment pressed the switch to spark the celebrations.
The town is again promoting the shopping voucher scheme with vouchers available from Bartle Landy's during normal working hours. They can be redeemed in shops and outlets throughout Ardee.
