Five Things To Do This Weekend

Posted by


If you haven’t actually burst into flames in the past few days, then you can look forward a weekend of slightly lower temperatures. Here’s a few things to get up to in between saying things like “it’s actually too hot” or “you know, we’re not able for this kind of heat here”…


1. Watch the football…

No, not the World Cup (it’s actually a rest day), Kerry are playing Cork in the Munster Under 20 football final in Austin Stack Park at 7.30pm.

After the minors, seniors and juniors all winning Munster titles in the past week, they won’t want to be the odd men out. It should be a great test against the old enemy.

2. Lineout dancing…

Tralee Rugby Club is holding its first ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ event in Ballyroe Heights Hotel.

It’s being held to raise funds for the redevelopment of their pitches and to support their rapidly expanding juvenile section which has seen big increases year on year.

Tickets are almost completely sold out, but message them on their facebook page (by clicking here) to see if there’s any available.

3. Music on The Mall…

The Rose Hotel is sponsoring Summer Tunes On The Mall from 2pm to 4pm this Saturday to enhance to atmosphere in the town centre.

It’s just a thank you to the people of Tralee for supporting The Rose Hotel and afternoon shoppers will be treated to some great music to enjoy in the sunshine.

The musicians have been carefully chosen by Renee Fitzgibbon to appeal to all musical tastes from classical, traditional, contemporary artists plus lots more.

4. Stacks go to the dogs…

The Austin Stacks night at the dogs at Kingdom Greyhound Stadium will feature great racing, family fun and fantastic prizes.

Buying a nominator ticket for €50 entitles you to entry for 2 people on the night as well as the ability to win some fantastic confined draw prizes such as : €1,000, All Ireland tickets and accommodation and Kieran Donaghy to attend your child’s birthday party for a couple of hours.
