Moments of pure gold for Sally and Stephen

A real ‘to-the-heart’ Tralee couple, Sally and Stephen O’Callaghan of Gallowsfield, reeled back the years as they celebrated their Golden Wedding anniversary on Saturday last, February 13.

It was a very romantic weekend for them with Valentine’s Day on Sunday and their son Stephen and daughter Helen made sure they had a weekend to remember - while obeying all Covid restrictions.

In different times, the couple would have had a party to remember as they have an extended family in the town and beyond and everyone would have been delighted to celebrate with them. But with restrictions, they had to confine it to a small family get-together with the couple being treated to a lovely lunch at their daughter Helen’s.

A haven of peace in Tralee’s Báha’í garden

A beautiful and colourful area of Tralee that is not very well known is the Serenity Garden created by the Kerry Bahá’í community to mark the bicentenary of the birth of Bahá’u’lláh, founder of the Bahá’í faith.

The garden was opened two years ago at the end of Denny Street in Páirc an Phiarsaigh, just left of the entrance from the Siamsa side.

Now that the days are getting longer and it’s nice to take a stroll around the town, a visit to the garden would be a real uplift to the spirits.
