His lights may be down for another year but Drinagh resident Tony Fitzpatrick is still brightening up the lives of others this dreary January.

Following another spectacular lights display at his home on Green Road, Tony and his wife Mary raised an impressive €1368 for Ard Aoibhinn. Raising the money was no mean feat; it involved over 300,000 lights, five weeks of installations and a €900 electricity bill. Despite this, Tony said he really enjoys erecting the display.

'I am going to keep doing it until I drop!' he said.

Tony and his family have been lighting up Wexford with their display for over 20 years and every Christmas, they attract onlookers from across the county.
