THIS weekend is a biggie! Christmas officially kicks off, a Liverpool legend is in town and there’s great goodies up for grabs in the KDYS.


1. Kop This…

We’re very excited about this here in TraleeToday! Tonight, one of Liverpool’s greatest ever players will visit the Brandon Hotel for a charity night being held by the Kerry Liverpool Supporters Club.

On the night, Barnes, will do an interview which will last between 30 and 40 minutes, then there will be a break and a chance for Reds fans to get a photo with one of their idols. The second part of the show will be a Q&A with the audience.

There will be a raffle and an auction also on the night.

Tickets are €20 (from Leo Byrne, call 087-2374993) with all proceeds, after costs, going towards the Tralee branch of the Irish Kidney Association. Doors open 7.30pm, John will be onstage at 8.30pm.

3. It’s Chrisssmaassss!

Get down to the town centre for a great afternoon’s entertainment as Christmas is officially kicked off.

At 2pm the CH Chemists parade will make it’s way through the town and this will be followed by the Rose of Tralee herself, Maria Walsh, turning on the Christmas lights.

Bring the kids for some great fun with the ‘Frozen’ characters, Minnie and Mickey and Santa himself, who can be visited in CH Chemists’ Santaland.

4. Gaelcholáiste Fun

A football match between past pupils of Gaelcholáiste Chiarraí will be held in the Na Gaeil GAA pitch at 3pm as part of their 25th anniversary celebrations. It could be good craic, especially if you went to the school, to see old pals do battle.


5. Shop, shop, shop!

Ok, you had fun yesterday in town, now things gets serious. Just 25 shopping days left so get to town and get some of the arduous retail labour over and done with.
