Inistioge is under a blanket of Christmas snow - or is it?

'Snowy' Inistioge yesterday

Christmas came early to Kilkenny... or did it?

Last night a blanket of snow covered the beautiful village of Inistioge, Christmas lights twinkled in the square ... and a film crew were in action!

The picturesque village was transformed last night (Thursday) as Dunnes Stores were filming their Christmas advert.

Locals were quick to snap some atmospheric photographs of the scene.

We haven't seen the finished advert yet but we're all eager to see Kilkenny on our television screens this Christmas!
