One young Tralee man is doing his home county proud by posting online about places to visit that are on and off the beaten track.
Jason Roche, son of Theresa Roche from Stack’s Villas, and his girlfriend Lauren Quinn, daughter of Anne and Jim from Connolly Park, have been posting lovely photos and videos on Jason’s Facebook page showing the magical places to visit around the county entitled ‘Things to Do In Kerry’.
Jason, who is studying Business and Accounting in MTU, and Lauren, who is studying Social Care, are encouraging people to ‘stay at home and enjoy what our beautiful county and country’ have to offer.
Tralee teens who would like to volunteer some of their time over the summer months to work as Youth Ambassadors in the town are currently being invited by St John’s Parish Committee to apply to get involved.
“This is a voluntary programme which will offer visitors to Tralee guided tours of both St John’s Churches - Catholic and Church of Ireland - as well as tours of our Town Park for families,” said Paddy Daly of St John’s Parish.“We are currently exploring the possibility of recruiting young people aged between 16 years and 18 years who would like to volunteer some of their time over the summer months to work as ‘Youth Ambassadors’ leading guided tours of our Church, welcoming visitors and also taking families on guided walks through the Town Park,” he explained.
“This programme will involve a week of training mid-June with work in July and August.
