Christmas in Killarney, in association with the National Parks and Wildlife Service, will host a very exciting virtual Christmas treasure trail in Killarney this year and it will greatly enhance the fun of the season of goodwill.

Wanderful Christmas is a digital orienteering experience for families who are invited to follow the map and scan the special markers placed around the town and in the National Park to meet hidden virtual Christmas characters.

Unlock all the characters to receive a sought-after Wanderful Certificate and the aim is to use technology to get children outdoors and more active.

This is Wanderful’s second collaboration with the National Parks. Earlier this year they launched Ciar’s Quest in Ross Island, enticing almost one thousand families to meet and learn about the hidden wildlife of the park.

Wanderful are once again delighted to partner with the NPWS and Christmas in Killarney to encourage families to get active and enjoy Killarney town and the 26,000-acre National Park during the festive season.

To download the App, view the map and for more information visit www.wanderful.ie/christmas/

• This is a free, daytime family activity with parental supervision required.
• The tail starts at the ANAM Cultural Centre on East Avenue Road and loops through the National Park and Killarney town
• It involves a 2.7km easy buggy-friendly walk
• The App saves your progress so you can do the trail all in one go or come back again and again to complete the route.

Kerry take on Cork in the first round of the Munster Championship at Fitzgerald Stadium on Saturday.

This glamour tie always attracts a huge crowd and Cork fans will travel in their droves from the Rebel County.

As a result there will be parking restrictions and traffic disruptions in the town on Saturday afternoon.

“Please be aware that the town will be bustling with activity, and traffic congestion is expected. Some parking areas may reach capacity, so we recommend allowing extra time for your journey,” said a Garda spokesperson.

Parking will be available in the following areas near the stadium: New Street, The Glebe car park, Fair Hill car park, High Street, Rock Road car park and the Lewis Road car park.

Parking in the vicinity of Fitzgerald Stadium is reserved for residents with parking passes only.

Killarney For Palestine is raffling two tickets to a Taylor Swift concert in Edinburgh.

The group is raising funds for the Halaq family who are known to Kerry Friends of Palestine and who are currently displaced in tents in the Gaza Strip.

Their homes were destroyed in the city of Khan Younis by Israeli airstrikes.
