IT’S all Kerry these days on the RTE ‘Today’ show.

The afternoon programme hosted by Dáithí Ó Sé and Maura Derrane sees Tralee native Mary O’Donnell in a regular beauty spot, Ballyfinnane-based fashionista Orla Diffily dispensing style advice, but we’ll see more of the town on the show soon.

Their reporter, Colm Flynn, and crew were in town today filming some of our top attractions. Continued below…

They started at Blennerville Windmill where Donal Coppinger showed them around the wonderful facility, including a look at the model railway exhibition.

They also spent time at Tralee Bay Wetlands, before Colm got a bird’s eye view of the town thanks to Padraig McGillicuddy of Ballygarry House Hotel. Continued below…

Next up was a chat with June Carey about her family’s involvement in the Rose of Tralee Festival, followed by an interview with current Rose of Tralee Jennifer Byrne who was in town for the first time since August when she won the title.

They also filmed the new look town centre and spoke to Heather O’Sullivan of John Ross Jewellers about how Tralee has many family businesses and how the #LoveTralee campaign is progressing. Continued below…


The segment is due to air within the next month to six weeks so you’ll have to tune in to see the town being promoted in a positive way. Here’s Colm being dropped off in the Town Park this afternoon by Padraig McGillicuddy…
