Late Late Toy Show Stars Nanny Pat and Tom To Turn On Carrick-on-Shannon Christmas Lights

Tom Cullen and his beloved grandmother, Nanny Pat, melted the hearts of the nation on this year's Late Late Toy Show.

We don't know about you, but one of our absolute favourite moments on this year's Toy Show was little Tom and his fabulous Nanny Pat.

Walking out onto the Toy Show set with a hand-knitted sweater vest, a suitcase and the biggest smile, Tom almost killed us with his sheer cuteness.

When he opened the suitcase with a matching hand-knitted sweater vest for Ryan, did a Sean-nós jig and his Nanny Pat came out on stage for a hug, we knew we'd never recover.

We all need a Nanny Pat in our lives!

Now, the pair appear to be set for stardom after it was announced that they would be switching on the Christmas lights at Carrick-on-Shannon this year.

According to the Limerick Observer, the Christmas in Carrick event will be launched this year in the Markey Yard, complete with carolling, amusements, stalls and Santa himself.

Go along for a fabulous family-friendly day complete with Tom and Nanny Pat. How much more Christmassy does it get?
