Mr Tilly’s Christmas extravaganza raises over €15k for hospice

by Rachel Darcy

A man who illuminates his home each Christmas to raise money for Our Lady’s Hospice has revealed he raised over €15,000 in 2018.

Liam Tilly decorates his house on Bath Avenue in Sandymount in an array of illuminations and asks for donations to be made for Our Lady’s Hospice and Care Services.

He has been gradually creating the beautiful display for the past two decades, but in the past ten years has raised more than €100,000 toward care services in Blackrock and Harold’s Cross.

The 84-year-old plans to continue the annual instillation for as long as he can.

Locals have praised the work put into the lights, saying that Mr Tilly’s handiwork is “fantastic”.
