A new stand-alone Christmas publication titled 'By The Fireside', will be in your newsagents on Monday next, December 9, priced at €3.

This new magazine-style publication replaces The Avondhu Christmas bumper edition. Readers are given the opportunity to win a luxurious two-night stay in the Brook Lane Hotel in Kenmare, the town's only four-star hotel.

There are also tickets to be won to INDIE20 plus a number of other giveaways including a 32" TV and Smyth's Toys vouchers.

By The Fireside is filled with stories and anecdotes, a colouring competition for the creatives, plus the brain-teaser, Jim's 100 Question Quiz all of which will make interesting reading over this Christmas period.

In the shops from Monday – make sure you get your copy early.
