The elaborate festive lights display on The Mall, Castlebar, has generated plenty of buzz this year from shoppers, visitors, and locals alike.
Here are some numbers involved in the project to bring some serious ‘bling’ to the town this Christmas.
The number of trees in the lights display
The number of LED bulbs on display
The distance in kilometres of the cabling used
The number of LED bulbs on the two largest trees opposite the old Imperial Hotel building
The energy it takes to run each LED bulb
The running cost per hour to power the project
Many thanks to town engineer Sean Higgins for shining a light on the numbers involved.
Mr Higgins said the response to the lighting has been ‘very positive’.
