Their Christmas Tree was broken in half by the recent storms and it looked as if Carndonagh town centre would be without a Christmas Tree this year.

All the funds raised by the Christmas Tree Committee had been spent and there was nothing left in the kitty.

However, the people of the town rallied around. They organised a series of events and collections.

As a result Carndonagh will have a Christmas Tree in the Diamond this year and the kids will be happy. The new lights have already been turned on and the Christmas spirit is back in Carn.
