Back in July I was able to entertain the guests of Jennifer and Richard in the Listowel Arms Hotel Kerry. It also marked the first time I’d been in Kerry since March 2020, when one of my last weddings before lockdown was in the Killarney Great Southern. It felt strange to be out of the house let alone in another county! It didn’t feel strange for too long though as Kerry people are just the chattiest and I always have a ball there!
Kerry Wedding Entertainment: here’s a selection of live caricatures from Caroline & Eric’s wedding reception in the jaw-dropping surrounds of Sheen Falls Lodge Hotel near Kenmare in Kerry. It was of course decked out in its Christmas finery (I had to surrender my usual spot to the Christmas tree but I got over it). A roaring fire that would have roasted chestnuts a half a mile away and the contagious scent of mulled wine set the mood nicely for the guests’ arrivals, and when they sat with me the laughter wasn’t long flowing!
This was the wedding where I asked a child from London if it was his first time in Ireland. He nodded and I asked him if he liked it. He nodded again and said “in Ireland, everybody is your friend.” I got something in my eye after that.
