Christmas in Listowel 2017

Listowel Arms at night looks magical.

John B. Keane’s Bar has a traditional window display with real holly and candles.

There is a welcoming light in the window of The Seanchaí


Looking forward to a reopening

This is the Tinteán theatre in Ballybunion which has been closed for a few years now. It will be great to see it open again in 2018. It is a lovely space with huge potential.


Bank of Ireland Enterprise Evening.

This now annual event took place in the Community Centre on Friday Dec 1 2017. It’s a super showcase for what is happening in North Kerry and its a very entertaining evening. Here are the first of the many photos I took on the night. I didn’t note everyone’s name but I got the banner telling you the business they run.

I have a photo in this calendar. I am in very illustrious company. Photos by super photographers like Brendan Lady, John Kelliher, Grainne Twomey and more make this a lovely present for any North Kerry person on your list. And Áras Mhuire is a cause well worth your support.

That’s Leah’s. I missed the banner.


Opening Soon……I’ll let you know what it sells when I find out.

Listowel Vocational School trip to Killarney in 1961 continued

On the right is Patsy O’Sullivan and beside him is Dick Fitzgerald

This student is a bit of a mystery. Maureen remembers him as Bertie but that’s all.

This photo was taken in Tralee on the way to Killarney.  We need a bit of help here to identify the girl on the far left and the girl standing a little in front of the others second from right. The other girls are Eileen Buckley, 4th Rita Finucane-Moyvane, 5th  Maura O Sullivan-Ballylongford, 6th ?, 7. Kathleen Buckley-Keylod,Moyvane.

4 girls with bus behind them at Ladies View, Eileen Buckley (don’t know from where), Maura O’Sullivan from Lenamore, Ballylongford, Maureen Barrett, Ballylongford(me) and Kathleen Buckley-Keylod, Moyvane
