About the Simon House of Light
The Simon House of Light is an animated festive light projection, with accompanying music, which will illuminate the front of the Powerscourt Townhouse Centre on Dublin’s South William Street from 10th to 12th December.
Sponsored by The Irish Times, Powerscourt Townhouse, Irish International and 98FM, the Simon House of Lightshow is a celebration of the national Simon House of Cards Appeal, which aims to raise much-needed funds for the homeless charity. The annual Christmas appeal allows companies to make donations in support of people who are homeless instead of sending Christmas gifts or cards. In recognition of this support, business logos feature in the
Simon House of Light show.
