Christmas Windows in Listowel in 2017

Last year we had the Coca Cola trucks. This year the talk of the town is the 

North Pole Express at The Lartigue

In conjunction with the Santa experience the traders have decorated their Christmas windows with a train theme.

Anyone who has ever tried to photograph through glass, will tell you that it is impossible to avoid glare and reflection. I encountered these problems when I ventured down town in the cold and the rain this morning, November 25 2017. You  will see me and my umbrella reflected in the windows in some of the photos.

Below are just a few of the windows. I will bring you more next week as well as some photos from the switching on of the Christmas lights. This year the lights will be switched on by Aidan O’Mahoney. Rumour has it that RTE will be in town.

A gorgeous Christmas tree  with a train running round it is in the antique shop window.

 This lovely monorail is also in the antique shop.

Tae Lane’s display is literally good enough to eat.

Some windows are still a work in progress.

Look out for more next week.
