Thankfully January is nearly behind us, so why not see it off by going to or taking part in one of these events…


1. Quiz time…

If you fancy testing your general knowledge tonight, Na Gaeil GAA Club is hosting a table quiz at 8pm. This is to help support their young Lèiriú thespians who are heading to Sligo  to represent Na Gaeil  Tralee /St Brendan’s Board, Kerry and Munster in the All-Ireland Scór Na nÓg Final on Saturday 17th February.

It promises to be a great evening of fun. There will also be a raffle with great Spot Prizes to be won on the night. Table of 4: €20.


2. Open day…

A wonderful school right in the heart of Tralee will host an open day this Saturday at 1pm.

St John’s Parochial School on Ashe Street wants parents of children going to school this September to come in and get a feel for the supportive and positive atmosphere in the school.

Families will get an idea of what school life is like in that short period of time and they will have activities organised for children on the day.
