Don’t miss the New Year’s Eve fire­work dis­play in Denny Street

The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - CHRISTMAS IN TRALEE -

WHILE it’s nat­u­ral to ex­pect the New Year’s Eve en­ter­tain­ment to fo­cus on the count­down to mid­night, it’s good to know the or­gan­is­ers of Christ­mas events in Tralee be­lieve peo­ple of all ages should get to wel­come 2019 to Tralee.

The New Year’s Eve Fire­work Dis­play takes place at 7pm on Denny Street, Mon­day, De­cem­ber 31 giv­ing fam­i­lies and par­ty­go­ers a rare op­por­tu­nity to cel­e­brate New Year’s Eve in the cap­i­tal at an ear­lier time.

The tem­per­a­tures won’t be quite on a par with the last time a fire­work dis­play was seen at the Rose of Tralee fes­ti­val in Au­gust. But this is eas­ily re­solved by wrap­ping up well and get­ting out there to en­joy some mid-win­ter il­lu­mi­na­tions over Tralee.

The at­mos­phere is al­ways elec­tric and it’s the per­fect event to start your New Year’s cel­e­bra­tions in Tralee. Big crowds are ex­pected in Denny Street so peo­ple are ad­vised to ar­rive early. CHRIST­MAS should be one of the hap­pi­est days of the year for chil­dren but sadly for many less for­tu­nate young­sters it can be a day marred with sad­ness.

Once again Ca­ball’s Toy­mas­ter in Tralee and St Vin­cent de Paul have teamed up to make sure that doesn’t hap­pen to any child in Kerry and that Christ­mas - as it should be - is a day of joy for ev­ery­one.

The Ca­ball’s/SVP an­nual ap­peal has been a great suc­cess in pre­vi­ous years, with hun­dreds of chil­dren from less well-off fam­i­lies in Tralee and its sur­round­ing ar­eas re­ceiv­ing toys thanks to thou­sands of eu­ros in dona­tions from the pub­lic.

To help a child in need all you need do is drop into Ca­balls Toy­mas­ter on Bridge Street in Tralee and buy a spe­cial voucher - for any amount.

All the money raised will then go to St Vin­cent de Paul who will use it to buy toys and gifts from a wish list sub­mit­ted by lo­cal chil­dren. If you wish, you can also buy a toy on the list.

Anne Laide of Ca­balls said she and her staff are al­ways de­lighted to be able to help St Vin­cent de Paul and they are ab­so­lutely de­ter­mined that no child should go have to go without a toy on Christ­mas morn­ing.

To make a do­na­tion or to find out more about this hugely im­por­tant ap­peal just call into Ca­balls. Every child should smile on Christ­mas morn­ing so please do what you can to help. Re­mem­ber no amount is too small so even if you can only spare a euro or two please help make a child’s Christ­mas.
