For the seventh consecutive year, a Dublin neighbourhood is dazzling under thousands of Christmas lights to lift people's spirits and raise funds for charity.

Finglas resident Dylan Walsh has once again created a sparkling display covering his home and neighbouring houses in Cappagh Green.

He said: "There are 25,000 to 30,000 lights this year. We are going bigger and better with our decorations.

"We have a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for ARC Cancer Support services, in memory of a cousin's husband that passed away.

"We are also collecting for Finglas Support and Suicide Prevention Network, in memory of a good friend who passed away two weeks ago.’’
