Some much-needed cheer has been brought to Cork this Christmas thanks to a series of spectacular festive images which have been projected onto Belvelly Castle.

The castle, well-known for its location on the road connecting Fota Island to Great Island, has been lit up by castle keeper Jonathan Lee with a series of projections this month.

The latest is a Santa Claus image, projected on the castle from 5pm to 9pm nightly.

Estimates vary as to when Belvelly was built by the Anglo-Norman Hodnett family, to guard the entrance to Great Island, but it is known to be more than 600 years old.

It is currently owned by Garry and Anne Wilson.
