Santa coming to Tory today


Santa Claus is scheduled to arrive by helicopter on storm bound Tory Island off the Donegal coast today. He will distribute Christmas gifts to children at a party in the island community hall. Joined by the "King of Tory", Mr Patsy Dan Rodgers, Santa will then visit the aged and infirm.

The helicopter will make at least six flights between the island and the mainland 11 miles away, shuttling students and emigrants home for Christmas.
