Once again, the Raheny Business Association, with the aid of many others and the kind gift of a tree by Dublin Corporation, hosted a wonderful village event as Raheny's Christmas Tree for 2001 was lit on Friday, December 7th. Here, courtesy of Jonathan Foley, are some pictures to help capture the warm spirit and atmosphere of the evening.
It will take a few moments to load all the pictures but they are very compact and should not delay you long. Enjoy!
