It’s the weekend already which means that there’s places to go, things to do and people to see. Here’s some stuff you can get up around the county…


Indiana Jones

Raiders Of The Lost Ark is on in the Town Park on Friday night.

1. Enjoy An Indiana Summer

Tralee Town Park will play host to a free open air cinema screening this coming Friday July 17, when it will be showing the Spielberg classic ‘Raiders of The Lost Ark’.

The ‘gates’ will open at 7pm with the film all set to start at 9.30pm.

No alcohol is allowed at the event with organisers saying though that picnics are allowed and who are also encouraging people to bring blankets and rain gear, just in case the weather takes a turn for the worse.

2. Test The Oul Noggin

If swashbuckling, whip-action isn’t your thing, then there’s a table quiz out in the Spa to get the brain working.

It’s actually a fundraiser for Tralee Rose Escort Shane Kenny for his travails during the Festival as well as proceeds going towards the Churchill Players Pantomime Group.

It begins at 8pm out in the Oyster Taven.


Kerry Cork 4

This guy is leading Kerry out on Saturday.

3. There’s Some Match On In Killarney…

Kerry and Cork go at each other again on Saturday night out in Killarney so expect a huge crowd and an amazing atmosphere.

Tickets for the terrace at €20 and are available from Garvey’s Supervalu in Tralee.

A bit of advice after two weeks ago; leave early…very early!

4. Forget The Rain, Get Out And Enjoy Yourself

Jesus but it’s been a bad summer so far. Maybe it’s that we got used to the good summers over the past couple of years, but it really feels like a washout this time.


Make the best of it by getting out for a walk, head to town for shopping, go for a meal and have a few drinks. Don’t let the feckin rain get you down!

5. Camán Feel The Noise

Ok, see that map there? For many, living anywhere west of that road between Tralee and Listowel, it’s going to be a busy Sunday.

There are three opening round games in the Kerry Senior Hurling Championship with  a double bill taking place in Causeway – beginning at 1.30pm with Crotta O’Neill’s v Kilmoyley and the second match between Abbeydorney v St Brendan’s at 3pm.

This is followed by a 6pm throw-in in Kilmoyley for the match between Ballyduff v Causeway.

Not for the faint of heart.
