The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - NEWS - By FER­GUS DEN­NEHY

THE finest names in the sport­ing world will de­scend on the Bal­ly­roe Heights Ho­tel at the end of this month as they lend their sup­port to Re­cov­ery Haven.

‘An Evening of Sport­ing Greats’ will take place on Fri­day, Novem­ber 30 ,and will see GAA greats Micheál Ó Muirc­heartaigh and Ai­dan O’Ma­hony; horse rac­ing guru Ted Walsh; and Ire­land’s women’s rugby cap­tain Ciara Grif­fin take part in a panel on the night.

Up for dis­cus­sion on the night will be the ca­reer highlights of all the greats in­volved, with a Q&A ses­sion planned with the au­di­ence af­ter­wards – and a few in­ter­est­ing ques­tions are bound to crop up, of course.

With talks of a few more Ir­ish sports stars be­ing added to the bill be­fore the night, it is sure to be a very ex­cit­ing night of sports ban­ter and anec­dotes – all in aid of the wor­thi­est of causes.

Or­gan­is­ers of the night said they are de­lighted to have such big names on board.

Re­cov­ery Haven is a cancer-sup­port ser­vice lo­cated at Haig’s Ter­race in Tralee.

It of­fers car­ing and ther­a­peu­tic ser­vices to those who are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing cancer, their fam­i­lies, and car­ers free of charge and in a safe en­vi­ron­ment in Tralee.

The ser­vices re­ceive no state fund­ing, and the char­ity re­lies solely on do­na­tions from the pub­lic.

There are also out­reach ser­vices in Kil­lar­ney and Kil­lor­glin.
