"Now in its second year, County Carlow – A Festive Family Experience is a co-ordinated marketing programme and works by a partnership approach between the council, agencies, business community and community at large showcasing collectively what we have to offer.

"In 2018 over 200 events were registered for the project and we look forward to hearing what new and exciting activities are planned for the festive period 2019."
