THE Tralee International Resource Centre Ltd (TIRC) and the Kerry Islamic Outreach Society (KIOS) are getting ready to host a family fun day on Sunday September 27 in the Meadowlands Hotel. 

The Kerry County Council supported fun day will run from 1pm-4pm on the day and will be in conjunction with the celebration of Eid ul Adha, the Festival of the Sacrifice. 

“Our aim is to support integration between local and international communities, and we are delighted to be celebrating this religious holiday with our Muslim counterparts,” said Mary Carroll,  TIRC’s Co-coordinator.

“The day will be packed full of kids entertainment, tasty food and an opportunity to meet and chat with members of the Islamic community. It will also provide the opportunity to learn more about this special occasion and the Muslim faith,” she said.

“Events like this help to break down barriers and for communities to learn more about people of different religions and cultures through food, fun and friendship,” she finished.

“Eid ul Adha is an event which reminds us of sharing happiness with every one and also reminds us to help others especially the needy ones. It’s a festival of sacrifice where we sacrifice our happiness for the happiness others.  Kerry Islamic Outreach Society would like to invite the whole community to join us and share the happiness especially with children,” said Rizwan Khan, Chairperson of the KIOS.
