Connect Lifestyle-Issue 53-November 2018

Welcome to this month’s issue where we chat with Deirdre O’Kane on her recent trip to Kerry to collect the Maureen O’Hara award at the Kerry Film Festival. She tells us how she got to where she is today and talks life, family and work.

Michael Healy-Rae has just launched his new book and its definitely worth having on the bookshelf this Christmas, he tells us the reason the book came into being.

As we edge closer to Christmas we have a look around to see what’s happening In the party scene and we have some great tips on gifts in the first of our two part Christmas gift guides, lots more to come next month….

We have included some more pictures from our recent Hospitality Awards and of course it has been graduation in Tralee since the last issue so we feature some of the many who graduated. Congratulations to one and all and of course to all at IT Tralee for a spectacular day.

I just want to take five minutes of your time to remind you to shop local this Christmas, yes its lovely to take a trip away to see other counties and maybe other countries as we all prepare for a little festive retail therapy but do spend money on gifts locally too and support those that support you, so before the madness of rushing round the shops begins take some time out and enjoy your favourite read.
