Posted by


IT’S a long weekend and there’s a lot happening. Here’s a few suggestions on how to spend your time…


1. Picking a Rose…

Who will succeed Danielle O’Sullivan as Kerry Rose?

Tonight sees a new Kerry Rose picked at the selection night in the Ballyroe Heights Hotel.

There are 24 ladies from all over the county vying to succeed Danielle O’Sullivan to the crown and it promises to be a fantastic night of entertainment. There are still tickets available on the door on the night for anyone who wants to support their Rose.

2. Honouring a legend…

This weekend will mark the 50th anniversary of the death of the great Danno Keeffe one of Kerry and Kerins O’Rahillys most decorated past players.

To mark the occasion, the club will host a special commemorative evening on Friday night at 8pm to recall and remember his vast achievements. It promises to be a great occasion and everyone is welcome to attend.

3. Eclectic beats…

Great music, food and cocktails are on the menu in The Ashe Hotel this Friday night.

Eclecto brings the beats while in Alfie’s with a vintage cocktail bar, pizzas and platters. The perfect way to kick off the weekend.

The entertainment continues on Saturday night with the super talented Liam Kennelly while on Sunday night it’s the turn of the wonderful Jack Patrick Healy, Ireland’s No.1 piano entertainer.


4. Derby day…

The Credit Union county league resumes this weekend and the pick of the action sees Austin Stacks make the short trip to rivals Kerins O’Rahillys for a local derby.

The seniors have met twice in the last couple of months with Kerins O’Rahillys winning the Town League final in mid April, but Austin Stacks defeated them in a relegation playoff game on the May Bank Holiday weekend.

The game throws-in at 7.30pm. The other pick of the games is at John Mitchels where they face the daunting task of hosting Dr Crokes at 6.30pm.

5. Take the challenge…

This year’s route, the best yet, from Dingle Harbour towards Ventry and then on to Murrioch, via the ancient path, “Cosán na Naomh”. There will then be a choice of 3 routes to bring participants to the finish line and a truly deserved BBQ on arrival in Cloghane.
