Corpus Christi Procession to St. John’sPark, Tralee.

TRALEE photographer, John Cleary, has given us a few more images from his book ‘T’was Only Like Yesterday’ to show you.

The book of photographs concentrates on the 1980s with images from sporting, religious, social and political life from Tralee and Kerry all contained therein.

It’s a wonderful record of photos that all Tralee homes should have.

• In Tralee, the book is available from O’Mahony’s, Polymath and the Kerry Book Shop, Clearys Photography on Russell Street and the Quality Framing Company on Matt Talbot Road. It is priced €20. Scroll down for photos…
