Santa Claus joined Cork County Mayor, Cllr Alan Coleman this evening to switch on the beautiful Kinsale Christmas Lights on the 8m tree and the Mast. Main Street, Pearse Street and the Pier Road are also beautifully illuminated for the festive season. Hundreds of children and families turned out for the festivities as they followed Santa afterwards to the White Lady Hotel for a mini disco.
