The Christmas market returns to Portlaoise town centre this Sunday, November 28, from 11am to 5pm.
Main Street, Church Street, Railway Street, Bull Lane (to Browns Fruit & Veg), will be closed to all traffic for the duration of the Market.
This year the market features an array of various stalls from Market Square to the Lower Square. The event will have a Covid Officer and private security to ensure a safe and enjoyable day for all.
“Santa makes a special appearance this Friday night November 26 on The Downtown Portlaoise Facebook page at 9pm to virtually switch on our fabulous lights,” says Downtown Portlaoise chairman PJ Kavanagh.
Also on the day Alison Browne, President of Laois Chamber of Commerce and Downtown member will be selling the newly launched “Love Laois 2022 Calendar” outside Gerry Brownes Jewellers on Main Street.
This is a beautifully produced calendar, featuring images of various scenic spots in Laois.
All proceeds from the sale of this calendar are going directly to SOSAD Ireland Laois Branch.
“We are delighted to once again host our wonderful Christmas Market and we hope you all enjoy the day and the festive atmosphere around town,” adds PJ.
“We wish you a prosperous, happy and safe Christmas!”
