Connect Lifestyle_August 2019_Issue 61

It’s August and always a wonderful month in this county with so many different festivals and events to attend and have lots of fun at.

As its festival time we caught up with our reigning Rose Of Tralee Kirsten on how her year has been, and we also had a fantastic day out and about with our local girl representing the county as Kerry Rose, Sally Anne Leahy, who hails from the lovely village of Causeway, she chats about life and likes and what she is looking forward to for festival week. We had lots of fun at our early morning photoshoot and enjoyed a chat and delicious homemade scones with herself and her dad, a very proud man in Kerry this month and he has every reason to be with a daughter like Sally-Anne . We wish her the very best in her quest to keep the crown in Kerry this year. We also have a collection of all the other roses too representing their county/country in this issue so save the pages and you can follow them on TV and choose your favourite.

July was a great month for events and we have lots of images from around the county to bring you a taste of what was happening. We had a fantastic evening of fun and entertainment at our Cocktails and Canapés in the wonderful Ashe Hotel and a huge thanks to everyone who participated and provided advice and tips on the night to our guests.

There are all the usual bits and a few new features this month too so sit back relax and enjoy your favourite read.
