“It was a breath taking affair as Santa arrived at MacDonagh Junction Shopping Centre on Sunday November 19th via the Polar Express. The crowd who gathered at the main entrance gave a loud cheer when he finally arrived with Mrs. Claus, his mischievous elves from Nore Valley Park and all of his lucky Polar Express Ticket Winners.

As he arrived a well-timed snow blizzard descended to give the crowd a heavy sprinkling of festive snow. Once Santa got over all this drama he then proceeded into the shopping centre flanked by his naughty and nice elves from Nore Valley Park & giant festive Christmas characters.

Arriving on stage Santa addressed all of the children in the audience before welcoming his two Little Helpers Ryan & Nevaeh on stage to kick off the confetti countdown. Children squealed with excitement as the air turned into a sea of bright colours as confetti fell, all accompanied by festive disco tunes and plenty of chat from Santa who was enjoying every minute.
