Christmas will officially kick off in Tullamore this Sunday with the switching on of the Christmas lights.

Actor Sam Keely will be on hand to flick the switch in Market Square.

Once it arrives in Market Square, Sam Keeley will be tasked with lighting up the town for the festive season.

The evening promises to be a magical one for all the family with The Offaly County Council Choir and the St Mary’s Youth Centre Choir performing.

For the little ones, there will be surprises galore around every corner with street entertainers providing plenty of fun and little treats. There will also be a Christmas Market running from 12pm on the day in Market Square.
