Motorists in Tralee are being advised to plan their journeys on Sunday as the town and surrounding areas are hosting several major events.
Kerry Motor Club’s annual Winter Rally is taking place on roads all over North Kerry.
Roads near the villages of Abbeydorney, Ardfert and Killflynn will be closed all day to facilitate the rally and diversions will be in place.
The rally’s pitstop will be in the Brandon Car Park in Tralee town centre throughout the day and as a result, the Cahersalea, Matt Talbot Road and Dan Spring Road will be much busier than usual all day.
In addition, the Tralee Marathon takes place on Sunday morning, starting in Basin View and visiting Ardfert and the Spa before the finish line on Neil Armstrong Way near Siamsa Tire.
The GAA County Football final between East and Mid Kerry is scheduled for 2.15 pm so traffic on the approach roads from the Killarney and Killorglin sides will be much busier than usual too, both in the build-up to the big match and the immediate aftermath.
Later in the day, the month-long Turuas Mor Homecoming festival will draw to a close with a spectacular fireworks display on Denny St. Streets in the town centre will be closed from approximately 4 pm to allow this special Halloween Festival to go ahead.
And finally, there is a Vinyl Record Show in the old Scout’s Hall in Garvey’s Car Park on Sunday afternoon.
“It is great for the town that there is so much happening on Sunday, it will certainly be one of busiest October Bank Holiday Sunday’s ever in Tralee,” said Kerry Motor Club PRO, Sean Moriarty.“There is something for everyone and room for everyone to enjoy each event or dip in and out of the various events. Kerry Motor Club is proud to play a role in making Tralee a hive of activity this weekend and we wish our fellow organising clubs the best of luck with their events too.”
