Santa: Get your skates on kids – I’m on my way

by Gazette Reporter

Dun Laoghaire is being transformed into a winter wonderland this weekend – and the man himself has been in touch to tell the kids he’s on his way.
Mr Santa Claus contacted An Cathoirleach Cormac Devlin this week to say he’d be arriving on Saturday.
Speaking exclusively to The Gazette Cllr Devlin revealed: “I spoke to Santa last night via satellite link-up and he told me that he’s very much looking forward to seeing all the boys and girls who come to visit him.
“He said the traffic in the North Pole was ‘brutal’ but he’ll still here be in time for the fireworks display this weekend.”
This year’s six-week long Christmas Festival on Ice begins tomorrow and will run all the way into the New Year.
It will be packed with exciting family events and attractions throughout the town centre – including the fantastic 3,500 sq ft ice rink at dlr LexIcon
Garden which opens tomorrow.
The following evening, Mr Claus will touch down at Harbour Plaza, and a magnificent fireworks display will illuminate the night sky to officially turn on the Christmas lights.
Mr Claus will then take up residence in his magical grotto in Dun Laoghaire shopping centre.
