Seven Things To Do This Weekend

Posted by


The weather isn’t going to have us rushing to the beaches this weekend, but there’s other stuff on to help you pass the time…


1. A celebration of community…

Christ The King Park in Ballymullen.

If you’re in the Ballymullen area this evening at around 7pm, you might notice a gathering in Christ The King Park.

It’s all to do with a celebration of the area organised by the Castlemorris, Ballymullen, Murphy’s Terrace and Stephen’s Terrace residents. There’ll be a short blessing followed by light refreshments and in the area are invited to come along.

2. Championship action…

Austin Stack Park is the venue for Garveys Supervalu Kerry SHC Round 2B action as Crotta O’Neill’s take on Causeway at 7pm.

It’s the first of two games this weekend as  Kilmoyley play St Brendan’s in Round 2A of the competition at 7pm on Saturday night, so it’s a must for hurling fans.

3.  Music of the night…

A wonderful mid-summer gala concert is coming up in St. John’s Church of Ireland, Ashe Street tonight at 8pm. The Light Opera Society of Tralee is putting on this feast of entertainment featuring musical theatre favourites. Admission is €15/€10 at the door or €10 direct from LOST members.

4. Cheer on the Ultras…

The 40 mile Ultra-marathon hosted by the Born to Run Tralee Marathon Club takes off from 7am from the back of  FBD house at Dan Spring Road along the river walk.

It consists of a 4 mile loop, which participants must complete 10 times. It’s a tough endurance race and people are invited to come down and give their support.

5. Goodbye to Fabrik…

With the leaseholders deciding not to renew their interest, Fabrik will close its doors after a final bash on Saturday night.

It’s 80s, 90s and 00s anthems upstairs in the Over 21s room, while downstairs, DJs will be mixing it up for punters on a night where all drinks are discounted. Who knows when the venue will be open again, so it’s your chance to say goodbye with a bang.

6. Family fun times in Abbeydorney…

If you’re not Dublin-bound for the big Kerry match, then this might be something to do.

Abbeydorney GAA are hosting a free Family Fun Day which will take place in Tom Healy Memorial Park from 2pm.

Activities will include Novelty Races, Fun Hurling and Football Games, Penalty Shoot-Out, Bake Sale, BBQ and much more. There’s a table quiz in the clubhouse bar from 5pm where, of course, you can watch all the GAA action on TV.

7. Sunday lunch with the game on…

If you’re not too nervous to eat while watching Kerry, then why not head out for Sunday lunch in one of the town’s great pubs, like Kirby’s Brogue Inn who have a great menu with loads of TVs to catch the action.
