Santa Claus meeting all his fans at Manor West

God knows he has a lot to be doing this time of year, but Santa Claus is still making special time for the children of Kerry pre-Christmas.

He is only too happy to meet them all at his grotto in Manor West Shopping Centre in Tralee in the run-up to the big day.

Already, hundreds of children are leaving the retail park buzzing, having met Santa himself within his special grotto at its centre.

Now, as the season of goodwill really takes hold, Santa Claus will be on hand at Manor West from 12noon until 6pm every Saturday and Sunday right up to December 23.

It's free of charge to visit Santa at Manor West, and everyone is encouraged to bring their camera or mobile phone to capture those special moments with Santa.
