Christmas Fairylight Walk
St. Kevin's National School, Glendalough, Co Wicklow Launch of Glendalough’s Christmas Fairylight Walk
The Senior Infants class in Scoil Chaoimhín Naofa, Glendalough launched their Christmas Fairylight Walk this week.
The walk will take place on Sunday, 8th December at 4.30 bringing walkers along the boardwalk to the Upper Lake in Glendalough and back along the Green Road to the Hotel. Light refreshments will be served in the function room in the Glendalough Hotel after the event courtesy of the hotel management.
Participants in the walk are encouraged to wear their Christmas fairy lights, carry lanterns and torches and deck buggies and children out in lights to create a chain of lights which will move around the lower lake in Glendalough.
The event promises to be an atmospheric and memorable Christmas event. This magical Christmas walk has been organised to fund the “Literacy Lift Off” programme in the school. Generous sponsorship from the ESB, Turlough Hill along with funds raised from the walk will mean the programme can be implemented in the school in January 2020.
Tickets are priced at €5 per person or €15 for a family ticket and are available from the school or on Eventbrite. For further information please contact the school or visit their Facebook page.
