A CHRISTMAS decoration has come crashing to earth in Limerick city.

The star, part of Limerick City and County Council’s Christmas light display, came down on Catherine Street in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

A spokesperson for the council said it was “aware” of the incident and was attending to the ornament’s repair.

A number of tweets from passers by recorded the incident.

The council splashed out €100,000 on a brand new Christmas lights display for this festive season this year, it said recently.
