THE day has arrived and everyone is encouraged to get down to the Town Park this evening for the Tralee Nun Challenge in the Town Park.

The event, organised by the Tralee Rowing Club in conjunction with Pieta House, is looking for at least 1,500 nuns to turn up at 6:30pm in the park to break the world record for most people dressed up as nuns in the one place.

There will be music, entertainment and food stalls during the event in the Town Park, as well as spot prizes for “Best Bearded Nun”, “Funniest Make-Up” and “Best Sister Act”.

Tralee Nun Challenge tickets are €20 per person, which includes a nun costume to keep forever. You MUST wear BLACK SHOES to be counted as a nun for the Guinness World Record as the video below explains…

Purchase tickets on, call 087 7819051 or buy them on the day of the event at the marquee. The nun costume can be collected today from 5:30pm at the marquee in Tralee Town Park.

Businesses around town are doing their bit too to encourage people to take part in the event attempting to break the Guinness World Record of the largest gathering ever of people dressed as nuns, as part of Feile na mBláth 2019.
