Dunnamaggin Christmas Fair: What a magical day the community had last Sunday December 1st in Dunnamaggin. The Old School was decked out in Christmas decorations and hosted over 15 local craft, art and food producers. Santa came riding into the village on a vintage tractor at 12noon and stayed to chat with the children for hours. He was joined by Mrs Claus who played the accordion as only Mrs Claus can and got everyone singing and dancing. Santa and Mrs Claus had the very difficult task of picking the winners of the art competition. All the beautiful entries were hung around the marquee for all to see. Lovely homemade soup kept the punters warm and Joan's scones and Trish's bakes were enjoyed by all. The Monster Raffle draw took place at 3pm and with over 20 prizes almost everyone went away happy. Dunnamaggin Parish Development Group wish to thank everyone who supported their first Christmas Market through sponsoring a prize for the raffle, volunteering on the day or coming along to buy from the stall holders. A particularly BIG thank you goes out to Santa and Mrs Claus who were truly wonderful.
