We have come to the last issue of the year,
And had we an action packed November…. Our first ever Men of Kerry Awards took place and it was a fantastic night, we met some amazing men doing wonderful things
in the county and we began the night with a reflection on the late great Padraig Harnett who was dear to all of us, Padraig passed away a few weeks before the awards and was a finalist, his family and guests saw him being the first recipient of our Hall of Fame of Award, one I am sure the man himself would be very proud to receive, a worthy recognition for a wonderful man, you may have left us Padraig but you will always be in our hearts. RIP.
We also had our annual ladies lunch fashion and beauty afternoon and had lots of fun at this so again we feature some images of the day.
We chat to Brian De Staic and his wife Mairead on life, work and winning our Lifetime Achievement recognition.
Some of our local chefs have provided some ideas for the Christmas dinner, and Catriona has been shopping for the ideal gifts and books for under the tree this year.
So as always there is lots to read and see.
December is always a busy month so make sure you take some time out for you and your family, it will be different for a lot of us this year with higher living costs, and the wonder of what will come in 2023 so bear this in mind when shopping this Christmas, don’t try to impress with large unwanted gifts, get something meaningful that the recipient will enjoy, it doesn’t have to be the most expensive one on the shelf.
Enjoy your family time we are taking our usual sabbatical now and our next issue will be on the shelves the first Tuesday of February.
Until then stay safe, mind yourselves and mind each other
Merry Christmas from all the team here at connect
