Lee Valley Enterprise Board and Macroom Town Council have created this website to promote all aspects of the town of Macroom and the beautiful Lee Valley in which it lies. Here you will find information about the business and enterprises of the area, the schools and clubs that provide education and recreation for its people and news of the people themselves in the Lee Valley Outlook pages.
The switch on of this year's Christmas Lights will be performed on Friday the 6th of December @ 7 p.m. by Mayor Ted Lucey. The event has been a tremendous success over the past few years, with Lee Valley Enterprise Board's "Macroom Christmas Night" drawing the crowds. With over 25 market stalls already secured, it promises to be a bigger and better celebration this year. The highlight will be the illumination of the 18ft Christmas Tree in the Square and the many new light feature which will be appearing for the first time. There will be Christmas music, a carousel and many more attractions, plus all the shops will remain open until 9 that evening and look out for "in store" promotions that will be on offer in all the Enterprise Board members' premises. So keep December the 6th in your diary for the kick off to Christmas 2013 in Macroom.
Remember: KEEP YOUR BUSINESS IN MACROOM – KEEP MACROOM IN BUSINESS
