Everyone who purchases a bulb receives a memory card showing each and every person’s name so they can all be held in the heart of the community.This has become a cherished keepsake from year to year. These cards are delivered locally by the committee but are posted out all over the world.  Bulbs cost €5 each and this year information will be circulated to every household in the parish.  Details will follow soon.The Village Hall Committee are also planning a big celebration for next year.  In 2021, the village celebrates the 75th anniversary of Lady Nancy Dunraven gifting the first public tree in the country to the community of the Village.  A tradition which has stood tall since.Chairman of the Village Hall Committee at Adare Village, Paudie Griffin, said: “We hope the village Christmas tree will bring a new sense of togetherness in the village this Christmas and remind people of our wonderful community and the need to shop local and to keep our village alive.“We have so many wonderful shops, boutiques, pubs, restaurants, cafes and hotels which we all need to support. The tree this year was funded by a ‘ go fund me page’ set up by the committee. This has been very well received with donations coming in from around the globe and we thank everyone for their support.”“The message is loud and clear from Adare Village.  Our tree will stand proudly at the top of the village this year to represent our fight against Covid, to honour the people we have loved and lost and to show solidarity with our frontline workers.  Covid won’t stop this wonderful tradition!  It makes our hope burn brighter.” he added.
