The story behind our mission

With Lapland one of the most magical places in the world that any family could visit, creating memories that will last forever, particularly at Christmas time, and with meeting none other than Santa himself as part of that trip, this is undoubtedly a real opportunity to try and make that wish become a reality for you and your loved ones.

Kiskeam Development Association in association with Sunway Holidays are hosting a fundraiser between now and 31st December 2023 with the first prize of a family trip to Lapland in 2024 for you and your family of four, two adults and two children.

Proceeds will go to Scoil Mhuire Kiskeam and Kiskeam Development Association development projects in our community.

The Kiskeam Development Association was first formed in 1994 due to the village being in a state of dilapidation and this early committee worked tirelessly and has grown the village into the picturesque location it is now today.

With the aesthetics of our village the main priority in the earlier stages well resolved, what exists now is a vibrant younger development committee in place which has over the past few years taken on a number of challenging projects and delivered these for our village.

This includes competing at a high level in the Super Valu Tidy Towns, a community gym, a digital hub, a woodlands walkway, a playground, a pre-school, a set of annual family-run events in each calendar year, and much more.

Our latest Project due to be delivered in 2024 is a Mens Shed located in Kiskeam Village for all the surrounding areas under the title of “Western Duhallow Mens Shed”.

The National School in the village, “Scoil Mhuire Kiskeam” are also currently undergoing new building works and any excess monies raised will be donated to assist in assisting around this separate Project which also benefits our village greatly.

Sunway Holidays currently operates Ireland’s largest Lapland Program and has been putting together packages for Lapland for 20 years now. They boast unrivalled knowledge in this area and will ensure everything is taken care of for you. Extra family members can of course be added upon request with Sunway Holidays.

The draw will be held on Monday 01st January 2024 in Kiskeam Community Center and will be streamed online on Facebook Live.

We are also calling on you all Nana, Granda, Aunts and Uncles as there is no better stocking filler this year than the opportunity to win this fantastic prize for your loved one.

Tickets for this extraordinary experience to make unforgettable family memories, in one of the most enchanting destinations in the world, are limited and selling @ €20 per ticket, €50 for 3 tickets and €100 for 7 tickets.

No matter your age, young, old, or in between such a trip will bring out the inner child in you all, however if at the end of it all, Santa is not on your bucket list, a € 5,000 holiday voucher can be supplied by Sunway Holidays in lieu of this Lapland trip.

Remember, if you are not in you can’t win and the very best of luck in the draw!
