Craft Hub opens at Writers’ Museum

Listowel Craft Hub is opening at the Kerry Writers’ Museum in Listowel on Saturday, providing a space for local craft producers and designers to showcase, promote and sell their work.

Beginning at 12 noon on December 4, the hub is being organised as a way for local producers to showcase their products to buyers from North Kerry and beyond.

Speaking ahead of the opening, Cara Trant, Executive Director of Kerry Writers’ Museum, said: “We have been running Christmas Craft Fairs in the museum over the past 20 years.

“However, due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, we decided not to go ahead with this year’s fair.


Drama, songs and stories bring revolutionary Listowel to life

LISTOWEL took a trip down memory lane on Saturday as historians, poets, singers and actors gave a unique insight into the North Kerry capital’s strong links with Ireland’s struggle for freedom.

Roughly three dozen history lovers turned out for the walk to learn all about subjects such as the Listowel Police Mutiny in June 1920, and the role local women played as part of Cumann na mBan.

Historian Tom Dillon, poet Gabriel Fitzmaurice and singer Karen Trench transported spectators back in time through a delightful mix of stories, poetry and songs..
