New tourist attraction in Tralee.

Tralee honoured it's native son, songwriter and singer Christy Hennessy, this morning by unveiling a life size statue in the town square. Christy Moore did the honours. Any fans of Christy Hennessy visiting Tralee or passing through should stop by for a photo. Parking is available at St John's church for €1.20 an hour and there are several new coffee shops and established hotels within a minute's walk. Don't forget your shovel!

Ah ... so delighted for Christy he would have been probably chuffed and mortified at the same time to see a statue in his honour.

I must get to see it sometime, Christy was a lovely person and is gone much too soon.

Quote: "Parking available at St. Johns church at 1.20 euro per hour"

Is this pay to pray or to see a moving statue?

As Goldsmith said: Those who came to mock remained to pray! And this being Kerry, moving statues are of course, extra.
