IRELAND’S MOST Christmassy homes have been revealed in a shortlist showcasing the most impressive festive lights displays on offer across the Emerald Isle.
Christmas is a special time in Ireland and, for thousands of homeowners up and down the country, it also provides a chance to get in the mood for the December 25 festivities with a lighting display that either dazzles or disgusts the neighbours, depending on their particular preferences.
While some lighting displays leave viewers feeling suitably festive, others end up leaving onlookers feeling slightly less spirited.
Thankfully, the good folk and Energia have got together to showcase the very best lighting displays on offer in Ireland.
Part of an annual competition held by the energy supplier, they have whittled down a glut of entries down to just six finalists with entries from the likes of Limerick, Dublin, Roscommon and Wexford.
Speaking after the official unveiling of the six finalists, head of marketing & retail development Geoff Codd was full of praise for all of the entrants.
"We received some incredible competition entries from all over Ireland this year. It made it very difficult to shortlist just six homes,” he said.
“The effort and festive spirit evident in all entries is a mark of how popular the competition has become and we are delighted to have the opportunity to support local causes and charities."
Voting is now open and all you have to do is pick your favourite and text HOUSE followed by a space and the entry number to 51155 in ROI or 88101 in Northern Ireland.
Here are the six entries
