There promises to be a lot of laughs in Courtney's Bar next Thursday (October 27) with comedian Colum McDonnell's live show.

The Dundalk native has appeared in RTÉ's 'The Savage Eye' and 'Bridget and Eamon' as hapless friend ‘Fierce Handy Frank’. He also headlines festivals.

The comedian and actor is best known for his television appearances and writing credits on the IFTA nominated satirical RTÉ sketch show ‘Irish Pictorial Weekly’.

His comedy festival appearances include the Kilkenny Cat Laughs, The Vodafone Comedy Festival and the Edinburgh International Comedy Festival.

Colum has been described as having ‘the intelligence of Arsene Wenger, the looks of Che Guevara and the accent of Jim Corr’.

Doors open at 8.30pm on the night.

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.
