The Listowel Arms Hotel, Munster’s favourite wedding venue

Couples are coming from all over to The Listowel Arms to book their weddings.

There are all kinds of special touches and details that make this the stand out venue for your special day.

My boys tried out a fireside pose in case a groom had a turf or Bord na Mona connection.


Morning with the author in Ballincollig Library

Kristin Gleeson has written a novel based loosely around the story of St. Gobnait of Ballyvourney. Kristin is third from right in the photo. I, along with a group of other book lovers, got to talk to her and ask her about the writing process in general and this book in particular, recently in Ballincollig Library.

Look who I Met on Church St.?

On Monday morning Conor and Seán Moriarty and their men were making an early start on the Christmas lights. 

A more sure sign than the Christmas ads that Santa is on his way to Listowel.
