The best santa present I ever got …

‘The best present I ever got was when I was about four, it was a little cap gun. I remember I was in bed with my two uncles, my uncle John Joe and my uncle Bernie, and I was shooting them with this cap gun. It was the finest bit of craic I ever had and it will always stand out in my mind.’ – Sean Browne, Castlerea  ‘The best present I ever got from Santa was a sister! My sister Noeleen was born on Christmas Day, a very special present to me from Santa.’ – Kathleen Shanagher, Roscommon ‘It has to be a Nintendo game I got in 1992 or 1993, there was a game for shooting ducks. I didn’t sleep for about six months with nightmares about Mario!’ – Ivan Connaughton, Athleague ‘The best thing I ever got from Santa Claus was a little yellow doll that made noise when I squeezed it. I remember it because I stood on it in the morning when I got out of bed and it frightened me.’ – Breege Callaghan, Castlerea ‘On the 25th December 1986 I got an Argentina jersey with Maradona written on the back. I actually found it the other day at the back of the wardrobe, it still looks class!’ – John Tiernan (Jnr.), Kiltoom
