Nigel Farage will turn on Newry’s Christmas lights this Thursday 21st November the Council have confirmed.
Farage who is said to have a close relationship with Newry as he is seeing a girl from Parkhead will be the main guest of honour and will speak about Brexit for the crowd.
Council Chairperson Charlie Casey told Newry Spud:
“It’s a massive coup for Newry to get Nigel to switch on our mediocre lights and slightly disappointing tree this year. We hope the people of Newry will come out and support us this year.”
Mr Farage wrote on his Official Facebook page today:
“I’ll be switching on the lights in Newry this Thursday. I’m up seeing my woman in Parkhead so might as well do them a turn like. All welcome.”
