The Tír na nÓg children’s Easter festival is on this weekend and there’s some great events for the kids. From 1pm to 3pm there’s a Fancy Dress fun run in the town park which is always great craic, while earlier from 10.30am in Caballs there’s a puppet show.

There’s an Easter Family Fun Day At Manor West as the Animal Roadshow and Mad Hatter’s Tea Party will take place in the centre on Saturday, April 15 from 12-5pm.

The Animal Roadshow, will feature a Mini Zoo in the centre with a range of different types of animals while at the Kingdom Party Pals ‘Mad Hatters Tea Party, children can meet Alice, the Mad Hatter and many of their friends for some scrumptious munchies and a drop of tea.

There’ll be a magician as well as many kid show favourite characters, face painting and balloon modelling.

3. A derby final…

The Town Board League final pits two great rivals against each other at Austin Stack Park.

Austin Stacks face Kerins O’Rahillys in a game that always is keenly contested, no matter what’s at stake. Throw-in is at 6.30pm.

4. Strictly a sellout…well, it will be!…

While all the tickets were reportedly sold out for Ardfert NS Strictly Come Dancing, according to their Facebook page, 50 more will become available on the door on the night at Ballyroe Heights Hotel.

It should be an amazing night with the 12 couples vying for the second ever title. The show begins at 8pm.

5. Ashe Hotel Tea Party…

As  part of the Tír na nÓg children’s Easter festival, The Ashe Hotel are hosting a Children’s Tea Party from 12.30pm to 2.30pm. There’ll be great children’s entertainment and, no doubt, some chocolate.

6. A kind of a derby…


The Kerry GAA club championship sees some great ties over the weekend, but Ardfert are at home to John Mitchels in the pick of the opening round.

The clubs, who are both part  St Brendan’s divisional side, have some great talent and it’s set to be a keenly contested match (throw-in 2.30pm).
