There was great excitement in Mountrath over the weekend as their Christmas Market took place.
This annual event took place on Sunday with some wonderful carol singing.
There were also plenty of other activities which kept the children entertained.
There was also a very special guest as Santa himself made an appearance all the way from the North Pole.
All money raised on the day will go towards the ongoing renovation of the convent for the community.
Photographer Alf Harvey was present at the market on the day.
He captured some great images and you can check them out below:
