Santa visits the children of Wicklow!
The streets of Wicklow were brimming with festive cheer on Saturday as hundreds of locals congregated in the town centre for the annual Christmas tree-lighting ceremony and visit from Santa Claus.
The atmosphere was electric as the town centre became bathed in twinkling fairy lights with the flick of a switch. There was plenty of excitement from the children of Wicklow to see Santa Claus and his elf in person and share what they have included on their Christmas lists.
The season of goodwill is now officially under way in town and a craft market will run every weekend until Christmas.
