Meath County Council Arts Office is delighted to present ‘A Christmas Parcel; the video package’.

This collection of shorts adapts the illustrated book: A Christmas Parcel, written by Meath artist Noreen Walshe.

Featuring memories painted in words and images, the charming series beautifully evokes a little girl’s little world at Christmas time in Limerick in the 1950s. Igniting that special spark of magic reserved only for children, and only at Christmas time, A Christmas Parcel is a sensory assortment of recollections; wrapped with love, stamped with nostalgia and tied up with pining for Christmas past.

A Christmas Parcel includes 5 stories: Bears on the Horizon, The Tenth Carol, Christmas Star, Across the Christmas Sky and Ghosts which were first broadcast for Christmas 2008 by RTÉ Lyric FM.
