Christmas in Cork – 2017.

It’s coming close to that time of year again, dare we say it – Christmas

We’ll be covering events happening throughout December as they approach us, but for now we’ve got the date the lights are being switched on in Cork this year.

Sunday – 19th November 2017 is the date to save in your calendar, and the event runs from 6pm – 7.30pm.

The switch on will take place on St. Patrick’s Street as previous years, and massive numbers (upwards of 10,000) are expected. Traffic diversions will be in place in the City Centre.
