With trendy socks from Thomas.

Helen O’Dwyer writes:

Thomas Barry, owner of Thomas’s Trendy Socks, is a very special market trader at Dún Laoghaire Christmas Market [Dun Laoghaire, County Dublin] this year.

Thomas has Downs Syndrome as well as a host of other serious illnesses but this hasn’t affected his creative desire to express his inner self.

He now has his very own new sock business with the support of his proud Dad Finbar and family from Tallaght.

Running until  December 23rd. The Dun Laghaire Christmas Market and Festival features the largest ever display of Christmas lights in Dún Laoghaire, the iconic Ferris Wheel from the movie ‘Grease’, a Vintage Funfair, Santa’s Post Box and the very popular Christmas market with a traditional and nostalgic theme bringing the magic of Christmas and a winter wonderland for the festive season….

Brendan McNeely writes:

Too early for stocking filler ideas? Well my 11-year-old son Harry has self-published his second book “The Comedy Spy” which is now available on Amazon.

It’s a story about bad jokes, chicken hats and aliens trying to destroy the Earth. What more could you want!

In fairness.

The Comedy Spy can be bought here
