“It’s For The Children, Because I Didn’t Have It”


Media Coop has created a little film about some of Dublin’s most committed Christmas illuminators.

Colin Norris, of Media Coop, writes:

One of the neighbours, Mr Tilly, would be busy setting his lights up every year and we wanted to know why he did it? We ended up visiting homes in Sandymount, Crumlin and Palmerstown to meet the people who, every Christmas, light up their homes for their communities and the charities they support.

Meet Mr Tilly, Josie and Seanie as they invite us into their incredible homes and tell us about why they ‘Let it Glow’ each Christmas.

      How is this selfish behaviour? Light pollution is the only thing I could think of unless they are running those extension leads into the neighbours sheds on the sly. It Christmas lights ya massive grinch.

    When I was a kid this was Christmas tree and light spotting was one of my favourite parts of Christmas, love this.

    The Bath Pub sponsor mr Tilly’s lecky bill. The man’s an institution and does great work for the Hospice who badly need the cash he collects.
