The Spirit of Christmas and Season of Goodwill



Our businesses and retailers have bounced back after the turmoil of Covid-19 but are now faced with the rising costs of inflation and need our support.
The Christmas Tree scheduled for delivery, and a festive evening is planned to switch on the lights and launch Christmas in Listowel on Saturday November 26th from 4.30pm-7pm. There will be music, craft & foods stalls, children’s activities and the Turning on of the Lights at 5.15pm.

Listowel Business and Community Alliance are again looking forward to Lighting up Listowel in conjunction with Kerry CoCo and our sponsors. This year we hope to install a new “Book Motif installation” as a signal towards Listowel’s literary heritage. A word of thanks also to Gas Networks Ireland for their continued sponsorship of the Giant Christmas bauble light installation which will be on display in the Square.
Rose Wall, Chairperson of Listowel Business and Community Alliance, has said “With Christmas on the way, there is an opportunity to get behind local businesses with local support and encouragement. We wish all traders a successful Christmas season especially those newly opened and would like to issue a little reminder that the Alliance is always open to new members!”

“A lot of work goes on behind the scenes and we would like to acknowledge and thank local businesses and organisations for their support including Listowel MD Elected Members, KCC staff, Pat Sullivan, Declan O Mahony, Listowel MD Officer Andy Smith, Listowel Town Manager John Kennelly, Pierse Fitzgibbon Solicitors who greatly assist by running the voucher scheme, and the Alliance committee itself.”
As always, we are grateful for the continued support of Kerry County Council. To help support local retailers and businesses, there will be free street parking, subject to a 2-hour limit with dates to be confirmed in the coming days.

Listowel Business and Community Alliance wants to wish everyone a safe and joyful Christmas and we look forward to welcoming everyone again in 2023.
