Wednesday, 6th December, 2017 6:01pm

Could there be anything more festive than walking up the candlelit steps of St Patrick’s Church on the Lower Glanmire Road to see Santa Claus?

On Friday 15 December that’s where he’ll be, visiting from a faraway winter wonderland and ringing out his bells to announce the Cork Association for Autism’s fourth annual Carols by Candlelight concert. The church doors will be brightly lit with the glimmer of lanterns welcoming guests to an evening of seasonal entertainment.

On the evening, choirs performing all the festive favourites will include The Cork Prison Officers Male Voice Choir, Choir of St Patrick’s, Note Perfect, The Harmonics, and Montfort’s Choir alongside some very special guests including service users of the Cork Association for Autism's (CAA) supports.

96FM’s PJ Coogan will MC the event, which promises to be a wonderful evening of entertainment.

Over 300 adults now avail of the services provided at the CAA. The charity’s support services include residential and respite care, day service facilities, home supports and an Asperger Syndrome support service.

Carol Walsh CAA Fundraising Coordinator said: “The Carols by Candlelight concert is the perfect evening to get into the festive spirit. We are so grateful to have such a high calibre of choirs performing in aid of our charity. It promises to be such a wonderful evening of seasonal entertainment so we hope everybody will come along and help us in celebrating Christmas together.”

Tickets for the concert are €15 and are on sale now. They can be purchased online from, in Pro Musica on Oliver Plunkett Street, from St Patrick's Church or the CAA fundraising office at Unit 4, Barryscourt Industrial Estate, Carrigtwohill. For more information call Carol on 021-4533642.
