Hundreds of excited shoppers gathered with their children to enjoy festive music, magic shows face painting while waiting for Santa’s arrival at Liffey Valley Shopping Centre over this weekend.
Liffey Valley is partnering with Little Blue Heroes, a not-for-profit Foundation which supports families of children with serious illnesses in Ireland. Led by current and retired members of An Garda Siochana, Little Blue Heroes gave Santa a special Garda escort to make sure he parks up safely at his grotto.
Brother and sister, Sean and Fay Grant, from Rowlagh, Clondalkin and Gara Leanne McDonagh from the Garda Ronanstown Community Policing helped Santa turn on the Christmas lights
