THERE is going to be a brighter than usual Christmas for many towns in West Cork, with the announcement that Cork County Council has allocated extra cash for festive season this year.

A fund of €60,000 has been set aside to provide help with Christmas lights for the towns of Bantry, Clonakilty, Dunmanway, Skibbereen and Schull, with each getting €10,000 to upgrade or purchase new lights.

‘We need to support our businesses as much as possible to keep people shopping locally,’ said Cllr Declan Hurley.

‘What’s taken in during the Christmas season can make or break a business and this initiative is one way we can help businesses, as it will greatly enhance the festive look of our towns around West Cork this Christmas.’

Cllr Mary Hegarty (FG) wants to see this fund used for capital expenditure where community groups need to replace or purchase new equipment. ‘We must do all we can to enhance and support local retailers and service providers. I would like to see this money used to replace old lights or repair those that are damaged,’ she said.
