Reverse Santa:

Once again Youghal4all is running the Reverse Santa this will run on the 3rd and 10th December in Carlton Wharf Preschool next to Greenpark.

The unit was kindly lent to us by Deirdre O Sullivan. The idea is children will bring a gift to Santa as opposed to getting a gift. We will take new or second hand toys. The toys must be in good condition. I always say if you wouldn't give them to your own children don't give to others. We will also accept selection boxes, sweets or any treats .

Anything collected will be distributed locally by Saint Vincent de Paul to family's who are finding things tough this year. We ask no cuddly toys please.

We thank you all in advance for your donations.

Saturday 26th November 2022: Christmas lights across Youghal were switched-on as the town prepares for the holiday spirit with the seasonal street lights.

Picture shows the beautifully lit Youghal Christmas tree at the junction of Barry's Lane and Market Square.

Hundreds of people crowded on to Barry's Lane in the centre of town to see the spectacular lights being switched on. Children's faces lit up with smiles and a huge roar with claps of applause from the parents as everyone joined in the festive celebrations with dancing and singing. The rain and drizzle didn't put a stop to the fun and laughter - even Santa Claus joined in the merriment. There was a noticeable influx of people from outside the town which was fantastic to see.

The switching on of the Christmas Lights kick-started the town’s seasonal celebrations and a big promotional drive to encourage people to come into the town centre and to shop locally in the lead up to Christmas.

South Main street, North Main street and The Mall were also decorated with the festive lights while the business community and residential houses added their own individual style at all parts of the town. The reindeers are also lit up at the strand and Greencloyne while the huge Youghal Christmas Tree takes centre stage at the Market Square. Everyone wanted to take their photo beside the colourful and brightly lit energy saving low watt led Christmas tree. It can be seen from the main street and the back street and adds greatly to the Christmas shopping experience in town.

Well done to all involved in making this a special day and remember to "Shop Local"

would be great if the train was being built so it would genuinely attract more people into the town then some videos on facebook. as a young person living in the town it’s terribly disheartening. maybe you should try and bring some employment into the town so people like myself feel like it might be worth living in the town. instead of putting videos up on facebook

Parking should be free, it,s bad enough it,s turning into a ghost town, without having to pay to park a car

Not much choice in Youghal, to shop...and another shop closed today, at what should be their busiest time, Which is unfortunate... plenty choice in nearby towns and plenty of Youghal people shopping there..

Ffs another photo shoot while midleton and dungarvan are booming.

Youghal is fast becoming a ghost town

Shop local. What a joke. Ware are the shops

Angela Power-Leach I think you missed the point I made. People have the choice to shop wherever. I'm saying we don't have a shopping centre to draw shoppers back into town. We have plenty of supermarkets, and chemists to choose from we need a Dunnes or similar outlet, it would bring in more smaller shops ect. So my point is look at dungarvan and midleton. The YBA photo shoots and happy get togethers might look good for them but I'm afraid it's not doing much for the town.

Get rid of the pay parking and youghal will have the shoppers

Shop local. What shops are open.

Where??

Can’t wait to see this video!

Where are the shops in town??? And the ones we have are closed half the time, come on lads you are wasting your time. Youghal is gone. We voted for James, I can't even think of his secend name now. What has he ever done for Youghal I he's fucking useless. Any of ye won't go on with Noel Cronin live cos yer afraid of the questions he might ask. Tommy Collins is a safe bet cos he wouldn't dream of asking a question that ye can't answer. Shame on ye.

Shopping Local is not just for Christmas!!

It’s a pity CCC insist on charging for parking it has to be a deterrent to shoppers !!

You tell them girl 👏👏👏

Deirdre O'Sullivan

I’ve shopped local since the day I bought my first packet of fags at 13 lol No other shop would serve me 😂😂

Former Youghal Town Councillor Liam Burke maintains his belief that it’s time to reopen the railway.

Liam writes; “In light of the present difficulties, recently highlighted by YoughalOnline, being encountered by users of the bus service between Youghal and Cork, namely commuters such as students, workers, shoppers, people with medical appointments, etc., it’s time to re-open the railway. The soaring cost of petrol and diesel, the ever-increasing traffic gridlock in Cork city with its attendant problems of parking, time delays and air pollution, are pointing more and more people to a growing realisation of what a massive benefit a re-opened railway would bring to Youghal”

Well Done for speaking out ! Some people think that those looking for a return of the railway are only thinking of holiday makers ! The points you are making are the ones I’ve always argued for ! Start a Petition encourage people to demonstrate ! PEOPLE POWER !

I Totally agree with you Liam. We need the train service from youghal to cork again. Well said Liam.

Yes, the rail connection from Youghal to Cork needs to be urgently reinstated. The people of Youghal & surrounding areas require this service to meet their transport needs. Students, Employees, Shoppers & individuals wishing for a day out in Cork City must have their transportation needs addressed. The current very unsatisfactory situation cannot be allowed to continue.

Well said Liam the green way can be redesigned to fit around the railway. If we don't fight for this it won happen. Our young people need the railway back.

I’d personally love to see it as I’d be too young to remember when it was open originally

Very well said, we can’t just sit back and do nothing. We need the train back!

It's a nobrainer, bring back the train to Youghal

I agree, in twelve months when completed Greenway is open to the public there will only be a handful use it, whereas if The Railway is put back it will be constantly used, there was only one track been used from Midleton for years and now in the process of operating a second line, proof it’s common sense, The Midleton Station is now expanding and Youghal is getting a bicycle track is a no-brainier. The road congestion everyday especially commuters travelling to work is dangerous. The Rail Line was and should be The Cork to Youghal Line not end at Midleton. All of our comments are going on deaf ears. I was told the area is still owned by Irish Rail. What other action can be taken, I have approached TD’s and Councillors no joy. Thank you Youghalonline for putting this serious issue on the media platform and Liam Burke like myself highlighting the importance of A Youghal to Cork Railway service.

Well done Liam, for highlighting the need for the train to come back to Youghal. ..we could badly do with it....the traffic going to Cork city is getting worse by the day...not to mention the pollution and cost of fuel. We will have to draw attention to this by campaigning publicly...I am on board...( pardon the pun!!)

I totally agree Liam now more than ever as going to cork is a night mare.some buses are full when they arrive or only 1 or 2 get on if you are going to a hospital for a appointment you would need to go on early bus xxxx

It would never pay for itself...another silly notion resulting in wasting tax payers hard earned money

Couldn’t agree more councillor! Bring back the trains

Read open the rail way

Totally agree👍The railway is badly needed for Youghal

Hear hear, only way to go!!

We need buses travelling to Waterford earlier in the morning for students and commuters it's not all about getting into Cork, we already have a good bus service going into Cork every hr, the earliest you can get into Waterford is after 11 o clock, no good for work or college!

Go for it Liam it long overdue ,the ones they ripped up here in Dublin they had to replace short sighted or ???🙈🙊🙉🚞🚃

We definitely need the railway back

A light rail would be way to go.

Have no doubt about it and with the chaos at the tunnel and early hospital appointments you could go on

We're so lucky here in Youghal. We will have a beautiful 17 mile greenway to walk before we can catch a train to Cork. I vote we call it The Railway to Nowhere.

💯💯💯💯totally agree by god get on that green light the hop aint missed yet even though when midleton was reopened it should have being fought long and hard all the way to the turn table

A lite Rail system from youghal to midleton would make a lot of sense. I could be electric and it would connent youghal with the wider rail network. It would take alot of cars off the road.

2 points if there was a train most people would need to get a taxi to the station and also how much would it cost for a ride from yougha to Cork I'm guessing more than €20 the last time I was on a train was from Dublin to Cork and that was €60

I had written the same concerns when they spoke about putting in the Greenway.
