Mitchelstown can look forward to an extra special Christmas this year  thanks to a substantial donation to the town’s Christmas lights appeal.

Aldi’s Regional Distribution Centre in Mitchelstown this week made the generous contribution to the campaign, which is being led by Mitchelstown Business Association (MBA).

Mitchelstown Business Association said the donation will fund the centrepiece of the Christmas lights display in the square, a three-metre-high illuminated reindeer on skis.

Members of the MBA hope to raise up to €70,000 to realise their dreams of lighting up Mitchelstown in a magical way.
