A reminder that the big Movember Shave is on this Saturday night at 9-30pm at Hughes’ Bar in Cordal.
There are 33 hairy men now registered for the shave off and it promises to be a great night with spot prizes, auctions and finger food.
“We have up on €35,000 raised already since we started four years ago. We are delighted to be associated with this year’s charities, the Kerry/Cork Health Link Bus; the Kerry Hospice Foundation and Movember Ireland.

“It is important to the lads that the funds are kept local too as so many people locally use these services on an every day basis,” said Moira Hughes.
