A Great Night in The Tinteán on September 25 2015

North Kerry people came out in numbers to support the great fundraising concert for Listowel Rugby Club Development Squad and Áras Mhuire Nursing Home. We were treated to a superb night of entertainment by the Dursley Male Voice Choir, Colm O’Brien and Eoin Hand. A highlight of the night was the singing of local boy soprano, Mark Hennessy. Seán Lyons was our witty, relaxed M.C.

Listowel Vocational School Trip to Killarney in 1961

Maureen Barrett, formerly of Ballylongford is a loyal follower of Listowel Connection. She sent me these great old photos of a school trip she took to Killarney in 1961. She borrowed a camera and she made good use of it to record a very enjoyable day out. The photos are particularly good quality and my friend, Jos. only had to do a little work to make them really outstanding. Maureen remembers most of the names too  so I’m sure they will bring back a few memories.
