It’s time for that wonderful time of the week again, where we suggest all the things that you have to do this weekend…or just things that we think are fun anyway. Here we go again…


 1. rsz_unnamedPARENTS, ever fancied yourself a catwalk model? Or if there are any budding catwalk stars at home, they take note as your lucky day might the corner.

‘Recovery Haven Cancer Support House’ along with CH Chemists and Mods & Minis from here in town are preparing to host a fundraising fashion show for all the ages on Friday, February 27 at 7pm at CH Chemists.

There will also be make up and hair styling tips from artists on the night.

Admission is €5 and will be donated to Recovery Haven on your behalf.

2. CHURCHILL Drama Players Group will pay tribute to their great departed friend and colleague, the late Tommy Brosnan this weekend.

The Group, which is celebrating their 25th anniversary, is bringing their “Springtime Variety Show” to Siamsa Tire on Friday, February 27 and Saturday, February 28 at 8pm and it’s all in honour of Tommy, who was such a prominent member of the Group down the years.

Tickets €15.00 Adult and Concessions €13.00 are available at Siamsa Tire Box Office -066-7123055

Proceeds will be going to the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association.

3. The Abbey Inn will rock to the return of 7 piece blues band The Rhythm Method, playing together for the first time in 15 years this Friday night. It should be a great night for music lovers.


4. korcrestKerins O’ Rahillys GAA Club will be hosting their annual social on Saturday February 28 in their clubhouse.

The club are urging people to get their tickets fast. You should be able to get yours from any committee member or at the club itself.


5. 10990779_1565814930332110_7905846795508314773_nThe Kilfynn Soap Box Derby will be taking place on Sunday, March 1 at 12.30pm in what promises to be a fun, exciting and very different way to spend your Sunday.

The format of the day will be simple enough. There will be hopefully 64 entries which will lead to 32 races. This will then break down until there’s an eventual winner.”

While the event is not being specifically geared toward raising money for charity, organisers have decided that any surplus money they have at the end of the event, after insurance and cost has been paid, will go towards the development of Halloween and Christmas decorations for the village.

Any extra information you need can be found here or by contacting John Byrne on (087) 450 2571.

6. If none of the above have whetted your appetite, and you find yourself all ‘Netlflixed’ out by the time Sunday rears its head, a spot of GAA might just do the trick.

Kerry_GAA_crestKerry will face off against their rivals Dublin in Killarney in what is sure to be a tightly contested affair between the two heavyweights.

All the information you might need about kick off and purchasing tickets to this can be found here.
