The best of North Kerry music was to be heard as Comhaltas pulled out all the stops.

The Vintage Wireless Museum was represented and a colorful display of old broadcasting and recording machines were on show.

The story of the Fleadh in Listowel was there too.

Matt Mooney and young musicians showed the way forward for North Kerry’s great musical tradition.

Jim Halpin does trojan work in preserving the memory of those who gave their lives in war. His Military History Museum is a must visit for young and old visiting Listowel. Here he is chatting to Cathy Walsh of Gurtenard House


John Paul 2 Graveyard

Listowel people look after the graves of their dead. John Paul Cemetery on the Ballybunion Rd is always ablaze with flowers and a very hard working committee keep the communal areas looking neat and cared for.

There is now a good footpath all the way so that people who want to walk to visit a family grave can do so in comfort
