Christmas in Killarney

Christmas in Killarney I spent today in Killarney, where “Christmas in Killarney” is in full swing. I really have to hand it to the South Kerry town – everyone pulls together on such events and the community spirit is immense.

They blocked off Main Street and had food markets and other traders (on again tomorrow and in two weeks time), and there was quite a buzz, in spite of the gales. The festival committee had also set up a charity kitchen/service area, and that’s where I was – giving away ice cream and hot chocolates for charity. And before you say anything – yes, people do eat ice cream in such cold conditions!

A day well spent, and I think I have a new dark hot chocolate (might appeal to Markham), and it certainly was a hit with the crowds, but more on that later…

  1. Do tell. By the bye, it’s Firefox I’m viewing through. And I’m not actually back in Ireland yet. I’m in Sydney, so perhaps you should get on to Taste Ireland about shipping some of that hot chocolate out here post-haste….

  2. Yeah, my father also has a bit of bother viewing it, and he uses Firefox as well… Will have to figure something out. Thanks for the link! Will post the recipe. Be happy you’re still in Sydney. It’s freezing and stormy here…
