THE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS have begun to go up around Dublin City in preparation for the festive season. DublinTown finance and erect the lights on 30 city streets each year around the capital with crews working from night to morning.

We tagged along with the crew on Henry Street, who are testing the lights before the ‘switching on’ ceremony that’s taking place 19 November.

“There’s absolutely millions of light-bulbs that go into these decorations,” Paul Byrne of Fantasy Lights told TheJournal.ie.

“Years ago electricity bills would have been a concern but now now everything is LED and one decoration would be like two sixty watt light bulbs.”
