KILFLYNN ENCHANTED FAIRY FESTIVAL
The rescheduled Kilflynn Enchanted Fairy festival will take place the 27th and 28th of August.
After a two-year break, we are all really looking forward to welcoming you back to the magical village of Kilflynn.
Festivities will commence Saturday afternoon at the earlier time of 4pm with a magical parade that will reveal the treasure chest holding the Kilflynn Enchanted map. The map will make its way through the village guarded by the knights and the fairies will then create a spell on the enchanted stage to create hundreds of maps so you can all enjoy the trail on Sunday.
Sunday morning the trail will open at 11am and all visiting magical humans will be sprinkled with fairy dust so that they can see the fairy houses and enjoy a beautiful enchanted magical fairy trail.
As well as fairies there will be bouncy castles, ice cream and delicious food stalls, crafts stalls, face painting and so much more so bring a picnic and dress up for a truly magical experience.
As the parade will take place at the earlier time Saturday evening at 4pm some traffic delays can be expected between 4 and 5 and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Tickets are on sale now online through Eventbrite for €8 plus booking fee or at the gate on the day for €10-under 2s go free.

COUNTY MINOR FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL
North Kerry 1-16 Mid Kerry 2-13 (After extra-time)
North Kerry and Mid Kerry will have to do it all again next Monday after the county minor football championship final failed to separate them after 90 minutes of action before a large vocal crowd at Austin Stack Park on Monday evening 22nd August.
Oisin Healy was the hero of the piece as far as North Kerry were concerned, with the Asdee man converting equalising frees at the end of the regulation 60 minutes and again at the end of extra-time to force a second day out. Indeed, Healy’s first leveller came six minutes into additional time at the end of the first hour, which proved the very last kick that saw the teams all square at 1-10 apiece. Well done to the North Kerry team and their management especially Crotta Gaa St. Senan’s player, Sean McElligott (Centerfield). Best of luck to Sean and his North Kerry team mates in the replay on Monday evening 29th August at 7pm in Austin Stack’s Park, Tralee.
