IN PICTURES: Mountmellick Christmas Tree lights up

A famous Irish Christmas tree has lit up again in Laois this festive season thanks to a loyal local community.

The 60 foot tall Mountmellick Christmas tree with its moving light sequences attracts visitors all over the Christmas season.

Last Friday it lit up just in time for the Late Late Toy Show.

Many chose to watch it online - see the video on our website - but many also wrapped up to see it light up in person.
