FOR the second week in a row, Ballybunion's Golf Hotel was buzzing with Christmas cheer over the weekend, as over 100 women - and some men - gathered to celebrate Nollaig na mBan.
After a hugely successful New Year's Eve Ball in aid of the Kerry Parents and Friends, which was kindly sponsored by local businessman Michael Kennelly, locals were out in force again on Sunday night to celebrate Women's Christmas.
While locals may not have been celebrating the North Kerry Championship win in Ballybunion, those who were out did enjoy a four course buffet, followed by great entertainment by the hugely popular Dave Lawlor Band.
"The night proved a huge success, even considering it was a Sunday," a spokesperson for Destination Ballybunion- who organised the event - said. "With or without the North Kerry Cup the people of Ballybunion celebrated and had themselves a great night."
Because of the success the event, Destination Ballybunion and The Tintean are planning another big night on Valentine's Day.
