The North wind doth blow and we shall have snow

And what will the robin do then, poor thing?

He’ll hide in a barn and keep himself warm

And hide his head under his wing, poor thing.

Horan’s was a Great Venue in its Hayday

Historical Tralee shared this old one. The Horan Centre is here in Tralee today. Gone but not forgotten by many.

A Wet Morning stroll in Listowel, early December 2015

Come with me down Church Street in early morning, December 4 2015. Storm Desmond is on the way and the streets are wet and empty. The Christmas lights are trying bravely to add a bit of festive cheer to the scene. This was to be the day we switched on the Christmas lights and partied in The Square but that was all later cancelled due to the usual spoilsport; the weather.


Change in Main St.

A new sign….a new tenant?
