It’s the weekend and before the green-hued madness of St Patrick’s Day takes hold, there’s still a few things to get up to this weekend…
1. Have a laugh…
If you fancy a some great entertainment this evening, acclaimed comedy act, Foil, Arms And Hog will be in Siamsa Tíre tonight.

2. Get your fashion fix…

‘Rags To The Runway’, is for anyone with an interest in thrift shopping, vintage clothes and fashion in general. What’s more, all proceeds made on the night will go to charity.
Taking place from 7.30pm, a champagne reception a fashion show, great spot prizes, after-party and much more will make for a great night.

3. Support Spa NS at the dogs…
Spa National School will hold ‘Night at the Dogs’ fundraiser on Saturday night.
As well as twelve specially-sponsored dog races starting at 7pm on the night, there’ll be a wide variety of different novelty activities from bouncy castles to face painting for the younger visitors, to a ‘Battle of the Legends’ with former Kerry footballer, Marc Ó Sé taking on Kerry hurler John Griffin in an 80 metre solo challenge, for the older visitors.
However, the highlight of the night will most likely be the ‘Spa N.S. Wheelbarrow 525 Final’ where six teams of students each led by a local celebrity will compete in a relay race with a difference. There will be prizes for the best dressed couples, lots of spot prizes and post racing music to keep the party going.
4. Support the hurlers…
Kerry may have been well beaten in the second-half against Limerick last weekend, but there’ll be hoping to put on a better show against Galway on Sunday from 2pm at Austin Stack Park.
It’s a tough task though, as the Connacht men have some serious players in their team and are joint second in the table.
Admission on the day costs €15 but it is available at a reduced price of €12 if purchased online on www.gaa.ie, from the Kerry GAA offices in Austin Stack Park, from the Kerry GAA Store in the Outlook Centre in Killarney or at participating Centra or Supervalu stores around the county up to midnight on Saturday.
5. Style, style, style…
There’s still a few tickets left for the Connect Kerry Hair and Beauty Awards on Sunday afternoon which is set to be the social highlight of the spring,
Over 250 people will attend the glitzy event, starting at 3pm, to recognise the industry in the county which provides so many jobs.
Apart from a champagne reception, amazing meal, awards ceremony and afterparty, there’s over €5,000 in prizes to be won in the raffle. At €50 a ticket it sounds like a fun way to spend an afternoon (and evening…and night!). For tickets, call 086-2408237.
