Jackie enjoys some 50th birthday cheer

She now lives in Dublin with hubbie Brian Cox and they have two girls, 12-year-old Doireann and 10-year-old Laoise.

Life-saving results from Seamie’s spinathon

Tralee Boxing Club raised over €6,500 from their recent fundraising spinathon and last weekend they presented a cheque for €1,000 each to Banna Sea Rescue and the Irish Heart Foundation and also have €1,000 set aside to present to Comfort for Chemo at University Hospital Kerry.
