Santa at The Mills 2014
Monday, November 24, 2014

The feeling of Christmas magic is all around us here at The Mills . The days are getting colder with jack frost nipping at our nose, twinkling lights and beautiful decorations can be seen going up in all the houses and businesses around West Cork, and the sounds and smells of this wonderful time of year are beginning to fill the air. This can only mean one thing… Santa is on his way to the Mills in Ballyvourney!

We have the same feeling of awe and excitement waiting for Santa's grand arrival at The Mills like when we were young, all tucked up in bed on Christmas Eve. Santa’s (Daidí na Nollag) grand arrival to the Mills, his favourite place in the world (other than the North Pole), is on Friday 5th December at 6 pm and we received a special letter from the man himself telling us all how much he is looking forward to seeing all the boys and girls from Ballyvourney and all of West Cork and Kerry again and wants you all to come out to greet him with smiling faces, cheers and Christmas songs.
