Christmas Lights in Clane – Thank you!

Clane Community Council is delighted to announce that as of this evening… Clane’s Christmas Lights are on!!

Please note that this wonderful display would not be possible without the just as wonderful support we received from across the community:

  • the businesses, community groups and parish of Clane that donate the power to the lights, the aerial platform for installation and the year-round storage of our (growing!) collection of lights
  • the fantastic financial support of residents, businesses and organisations through donations privately and via the GoFundMe page (which we will keep open for the moment)
  • a generous grant from Kildare County Council (the LPT fund)
  • the commitment and hard work of the teams of volunteers that donated their time so generously to the installation of the display   

Our sincere thanks to everyone that contributed in any way towards this project, but, taking a little step back, a big thank you too to everyone that supports in any way any of the community groups, organizations and initiatives in Clane that enrich our lives and our village in so many ways.

Wishing you and your family a safe and happy Christmas,

Clane Community Council

Christmas Lights in Clane

Christmas Lights in Clane

Clane Community Council is preparing for this year’s Christmas Lights around the village centre to conclude the programme of voluntary work for 2020.

Christmas Lights in Clane has been developed as a collaborative effort for the benefit of people living and visiting Clane since 2016.

This year we would really welcome additional donations from people with any links to Clane.

Contributions will go some way to match the funding provided by local businesses and Kildare County Council towards maintaining the low-energy LED lights.

Many thanks for your support

Brighten up Christmas in Clane!

When we invited your “Ideas for Clane” last year the most requested initiative by far was for Christmas Lights in Clane.

Clane Community Council, with the support of Clane Project Centre, have looked into the issues, investigated the options, and come up with a plan to deliver lights that – with everyone’s help – will not only be affordable, but something we can build on and enhance into the future.

To get this new Christmas lights project off the ground, installed on Main Street, and brightening up everyone’s Christmas, we need to raise some funds.

And so we are inviting everyone to come along to our inaugural fundraising event: a Christmas Lights Table Quiz in Manzor’s on Friday November 4th. Teams of four cost €40. The quiz starts at 8:30pm.

If you can’t make it, and prefer to donate directly, please get in touch with anyone on the Community Council, or complete this form and send it in.

Thank you in advance for any support you can give: with your help we will all enjoy an even brighter Christmas in Clane.
