The festive season is in full swing across Dublin 4 as we come ever closer to Christmas!

Sandymount
Santa Claus paid a visit to Sandymount Hotel on December 13 in aid of children’s charity ambulance service Bumbleance, and they also had a spectacular Gingerbread Village on display! St John’s Church held a carol service on December 20, with a collection for homeless charity Focus Ireland. NewsFour’s Ross Waldron was on hand to capture the event:

Ringsend
Ringsend’s Christmas tree lit up outside St Patrick’s Church on December 8, when people were invited to release white balloons to remember those they have lost. Angela Barry posted this video of the moment the balloons were released on Facebook!

Billy Ryan sent us in these photos from the event:

Donnybrook
Former Ireland and Leinster Rugby legend Leo Cullen came along to help spread Christmas cheer for Donnybrook’s tree-lighting extravaganza! Sean Brennan posted a raft of photos and a write-up on what looks to have been a great event on Facebook. It is in the closed group Friends of Donnybrook, so if you want to have a look you will have to request to join!
