Duagh's living Christmas crib.

Popular local couple, Patsy and Frances Kennedy pictured in The `Mermaids in 1992.


During my Christmas break, I visited the Duagh living crib. This lovely Christmas tradition is a welcome break from all the commercial trappings of the holy season.

Hanging from the wall were some horse shoes and a tilly lamp, symbols of a bygone era.

A súgán chair for the weary.


A few more from the horsefair


The period between Christmas and New Year has become a popular time for weddings. I photographed this pair in Ballincollig Regional Park, Co. Cork.


Jim MacSweeney's lovely little robin


Some more photos from the Listowel panto, Aladdin

Danny's glorious costumes and witty quips were a delight

Princess Jasmine and her daddy

The same daddy turning vicious.

A small few of the very talented Theatrix children. They were a credit to Jo Jordan and everyone involved with their training.


Let's talk about the weather.

This picture by Daithí ÓMórdha shows every seal in Kerry sheltering on the Great Blasket island yesterday

The sun will come out tomorrow…… Ballybunion Jan 7 2014 by Mike Enright.


I can't really put up the photo again, but you remember the one with Mick Regan, shoemaker from Church St. His home has since been demolished to widen the entrance to the back lane. Maura MacConnell tells me that there are 2 Kennelly girls in the photo, Mary and Gertie. Now does anyone know where in Listowel the photo was taken.? Maybe one of the people in the photo will remember the occasion.
