It’s time to get back to normal, school has resumed, late nights playing in the garden are limited to weekends and in general we are all back to routine, but the fun and frolics haven’t stopped here in Kerry, this month it’s off to Listowel for the ever popular Harvest Racing Festival. It’s a tradition in Kerry now really, the summer is not officially over until you have spent a day at Listowel Races and brought Sam Maguire back to the Kingdom in September! So while we won’t be welcoming Sam Maguire, we are really looking forward to Listowel. As always the McElligotts Honda Ladies Day on Friday the 14th is another popular day in the events calendar in Kerry, we took a trip around Listowel and checked out what’s on offer in this vibrant town finishing off the day with a fabulous photoshoot in the wonderful Butler Centre featuring some of the race and occasion looks available in the town. We also have tickets to giveaway for the races so don’t forget to email or click on social media for a chance to be at the races.

We chat to Aoibhín Garrihy on life with the new arrival in the house and her trip to Listowel and we are delighted to talk to style queens in the county Carol Kennelly and Tina Griffin on how they got to where they are today while doing what they love so much.

We have a great wedding feature with lots of tips and ideas for those thinking of getting married, so we hope that if you are planning your big day you will get some ideas from this. We also have some recent weddings in the county and wish all our brides and grooms featured the best of luck for the future, and of course we have a selection of all the fun from the Rose of Tralee International Festival.
