Garda Sean O'Mahoney brought some Christmas cheer to Athy at the switching on of the lights last Sunday, December 5 when he serenaded the crowd along with local musician and singer, Barry Keatley.
Barry was MC for the night as a huge crowd turned out for the festive occasion. The event was organised by the Athy Town Promoters Group, which is made up of local councillors; community worker, Patricia Berry; and a number of other organisations and business groups. The snow machine also added to the atmosphere.
Entertainment was provided by Rockabilly Rebels, Shooting Stars and Athy Musical and Dramatic Soceity who are performing While Sheppards Watched on December 19.
Check out the fantastic celebrations with this video taken by Raphael Hunter of Barry and Garda O'Mahoney singing Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah.
