Two Carlow houses are shining bright this Christmas to raise money for charity.
People can view a spectacular festive lights display just outside Tinryland.
Donation boxes are located outside the houses where funds raised will go to the Make A Wish Foundation.
Speaking to Beat News,Tina Walker of Tinryland Christmas Lights explains how the idea came about;
"We put them [the lights] up anyway and we never intended to collect money but then there was people at the gate, pleading with us to collect money for different charities so we just said ah we'll go for it. It just escalated from there.
All along we've said we wanted to do it for children. Christmas is about magic, children and dreams, so 'Make A Wish' was the right fit."
The funds being raised are much needed as Make A Wish recently launched their Christmas appeal, fundraising to light up life for children living with serious illnesses.
Richard Matthews of Tinryland Christmas Lights says Christmas is for young people;
"Christmas is children that's it in a nutshell. They're fascinated by this ray of light. Last year we did it for two local charities and this year we decided it's for Make a Wish Foundation."
