Santa Arriving at Portumna Castle
Don't forget that Santa is coming once again to Portumna Castle on Saturday 8 December, and Sunday 9 December 2012. In a change to the previous formats, Santa is going to visit Portumna two days in a row!

This time, the Castle will be open from about 4 until about 6.30 on both days, so that the lights in the Castle will be beautifully visible in the evening darkness, adding to the festive atmosphere. This will also allow parents to chose which day of the weekend suits them best! Once again, Santa will have his special grotto, where every child will get a present, be able to post letters to Santa and lots of other activities in the Castle. There will be music and a magical atmosphere for everyone.

Tickets are on sale right now at Salmon's Newsagents in Portumna, right beside the Post Office, 7 days a week. Each ticket will give you a specific time slot for your visit to Santa - busy mums and dads can plan exactly when they arrive, see Santa, and have plenty of time afterwards to do all the other activities in the Castle, and then pop into Portumna to see all that the town has to offer.

The Committee in Portumna are always looking for more volunteers to help out with this wonderful event. If you would like to get involved in your community and to be part of a great day for all the kids in Portumna, please let the Committee know. You can ring Micheál at 087-6406-552.
