‘It’s all about the games’

Irish Independent - - People & Features -

Mother-of-four Kel­lie Kear­ney re­ally gets into the Hal­loween spirit in the weeks lead­ing up to Oc­to­ber 31. There’s the cus­tom­ary visit to Tayto Park for its ‘spook­tac­u­lar’ rides as well as seek­ing out the per­fect pump­kin for the chil­dren to carve over the mid-term break.

But as far as the kids are con­cerned, there’s noth­ing quite like Hal­loween day it­self when they get to go trick or treat­ing on the street of their es­tate in Tal­laght, Dublin. “We just go to neigh­bours that we know, or if other peo­ple have their lights on and Hal­loween dec­o­ra­tions, we’d call to them too.”

The mother of Kel­lie’s part­ner Joe also hosts a Hal­loween party for all the grand­chil­dren. “It’s all about tra­di­tional games and the kids love it,” she says. “And there’s a bon­fire across the way that they get to see from their Nanna’s house. I don’t want them to go too near bon­fires — it can be dan­ger­ous, es­pe­cially when there’s an­ti­so­cial be­hav­iour

around.”
