This year’s Nenagh Christmas Tree Festival started last Monday with an open evening at St Mary’s Church of Ireland, where all enjoyed a time of friendship and festivities.

Reverend Rod welcomed everyone and introduced some Advent hymns sung by the choir. Michelle O'Connor from Focus Ireland was there to visit with people and talk informally about Focus Ireland and its support for the community; we are pleased to have them as our partner this year.

Guidelines for Exhibitors
Each tree may follow a theme, tell a story or represent the activity of your group or organisation, and have a title which is reflected by its decoration. We encourage exhibitors to be as creative as possible with their decorations.
All exhibitors should provide their own tree – real or artificial – with a suitable and secure stand.
Lights are allowed but no candles. Please do not bring your own extension cables; these and electrical connections will be provided.
Setting up, decoration and dismantling of the tree is solely the responsibility of the exhibitor.
Tress must be dismantled only during the specified dates and times that are listed on the booking form.
The organisers will provide a suitable location for each exhibitor to complement the whole whole display of the festival.
The organisers reserve the right to remove any tree, or any decoration on the tree, which they consider to be unsafe or inappropriate. Organisers reserve the right remove any tree which they believe might be upsetting to others.
A number of window sills are available that can be used to exhibit smaller trees. If this is suitable, please indicate when you submit your booking.
To exhibit a tree is free!
Set up times: Saturday December 8th, 2-6pm and Monday December 10th, 4-8pm.

There will also be afternoon teas, seasonal produce and craft items for sale, as well as raffle prizes. Seasonal music is planned, and we have a lucky dip for the young ones and a quiz sheet to test your brain. The festival will end with a carol service on Sunday December 16th at 4pm.


For further questions about exhibiting a tree, please contact us at lisadrum66@gmail.com or 086 8206514. The festival will run from Wednesday December 12th to Sunday December 16th. Flyers with specific times are available at the church and at places around the area.
