Charities light up at donation
Charities from west Limerick to Kerry shone brightly as they were presented with this year's proceeds of the Noonan family's Christmas lights extravaganza - an amazing €26,700.
Christmas 2016 proved the most successful to date for the annual fundraiser now going over 10 years. They came in greater droves than before to witness the amazing light show at the Noonan family's home in Templeglantine.
"We were delighted with the wonderful response from everyone who came to visit us over Christmas and delighted to be in the position to present the money that was donated to six charities this week," Tony Noonan said.
Two Brothers of Charity operations benefitted from the proceeds, as did Recovery Haven in Kerry, the Milford Hospice in Limerick, CRY in Monagea and the Alzheimer's Centre in Adare in the presentation at the Devon Inn Hotel, Templeglantine, on Wednesday of last week.
"This was the most successful year we had, including the €4,000 we won under the Eir competition. But, apart from the money aspect of it all, we're just delighted to see so many people having fun at our home every year, whether they donate or not," Tony added.
