Five Things To Do This Weekend

Posted by


It’s another Bank Holiday Weekend so you’ll be looking for things to get up to. Here’s a few suggestions…


1. Worship the Messiah…

TRALEE Musical Society’s, ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ is thrilling audiences in Siamsa Tíre and there’s still tickets left for Thursday and Friday.

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s classic is brought to life through the direction and choreography of Oliver Hurley, musical director Aine Murray and choral director Elaine Canning. For tickets call 066-7123055.


2. A marathon effort…

A TRALEE native is organising a marathon 24 hour event in Tralee Sports Complex Swimming Pool.

From 11am  between 24 and 40 swimmers will each swim 1,650 metres or one mile, in a relay format.

Kristian O’Donovan has organised the 24 miles in 24 hours event for three organisations, all of which are very important to him, Down Syndrome Kerry, Glow Hearts 4 Crumlin and the Childhood Cancer Foundation.

3. Open day at ITT…

IT Tralee is holding their Spring open day from 10.30am to 3pm at the North Campus.

Prospective students are invited to come and meet staff for an in-depth look at courses at IT Tralee. Talks are repeated throughout the day.

There is also campus tours led by student ambassadors who will share their experiences of life at third level.

There will be a parents seminar where the student services team explain about supporting the students’ transition to third level.

4. A local derby…

A big crowd is expected at Killeen at 6.30pm when two local GAA clubs meet.

Churchill and Na Gaeil  compete for a place in the semi-final of the Premier Junior Championship. The Oakpark team are slight favourites, but Churchill will be hoping to they’ll have something to celebrate at their ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ event the following night.

5. Blues and Rockies clash…

An even bigger crowd is expected at Austin Stack Park at 6pm for the Garveys Supervalu Kerry SFC relegation playoff.

Kerins O’Rahillys play arch-rivals Austin Stacks in what should be an enthralling game. The winners secure senior status for next year, the losers have one more chance.

Strand Road got the better of the Rockies in the Town League final a few weeks ago but that will count for nothing on Sunday.
