Santa is set to pay a flying visit to Killarney to switch on the lights of The Brehon Christmas Tree this Thursday (December 1).

The annual event, which takes place at 5.30pm, signals the start of Christmas festivities for many families in Killarney.

Guests will be treated to mulled wine, hot chocolate, Christmas carols and a visit from the big man himself, Santa!

Each year The Brehon partner with a charity to support those in need during the festive season. The chosen charity partner for this year’s event is Foodshare Kerry.

The not-for-profit organisation set up to help local charity groups combat food poverty.

Food Share rescue quality surplus food and make it available to organisations who know how best to redistribute it to those in need.

The Brehon are asking for you to donate food boxes where possible, of non-perishable goods such as, canned foods, peanut butter, jelly, canned or dry soups, tea bags, coffee, baby Formula, bagged pastas and rice, cereal bars and granola bars. Food boxes can be donated to The Brehon on Thursday (December 1) and for two weeks thereafter.

“The winter time can be challenging for many families and we’re hoping this event will raise awareness and support those less fortunate than us this Christmas,” said Sinead McCarthy, General Manager.

“We look forward to welcoming the local community and their families to our much anticipated event, in person, for the first time since 2019,” she added.

If you'd like to help support this event, or find out more information on how you can donate please email info@thebrehon.com.
