This weekend, Dublin’s O’Connell Street will host the biggest gathering of Christmas jumper wearers to raise money for Debra Ireland and attempt to break the world record for the most Christmas jumpers in the same place at the same time.
Last year’s grand total of cheesy Christmas jumper wearers was an impressive 1297, which festive fashion lovers will now have to beat to top last year’s record.
The inaugural Geansaí Nollag Day was set up by Dublin Town to raise much-needed funds for charity and this year‘s recipient is Debra Ireland. Hoping to inject some seasonal humour into the Christmas countdown in the capital, the event will coincide with the switching of O’Connell Street Christmas Tree by Lord Mayor, Ardmhéara Críona Ní Dhálaigh.
From 3.30pm there will be on-street entertainment, performances, and a festive choir and 98fm will also be broadcasting live from O’Connell Street. Fear not though if you don’t have a Christmas jumper come to the make-and-do station to create your own Christmas jumper with all the baubles and bows that you need followed by prizes for the best and cheesiest Christmas jumpers!
And as a special Christmas event, Luas have planned the ‘Luas Christmas Express’ on Saturday 5th December, which will be an unforgettable magical experience for families at the Stephen's Green Luas stop. Families will be able to enjoy lots of festive entertainment on board of a Luas tram including a choir, elves a very special guest and more.
