Christmas Lights

It is with great disappointment that we have to advise that there will be no Christmas Street and Tree lighting event in the village this year.

The BTT Committee and volunteers had been planning the event since September but due to the increase in COVID-19 cases and based on NPHET advice they think this is the most appropriate action to take.

The lights will go on next weekend and we would encourage people to come into the village square to enjoy the display of lights over the coming days and weeks.

We know you will be as disappointed as we are but this is the right decision for our current times to protect all our families in the lead up to Christmas.

Laytown P & P

Competitions continue each Sunday and Tuesday mornings.
