Calendar of Events 2019

Oíche Chiarraí 2019 – Saturday 30th March 2019

2019 is a special year in the history of our annual flagship event, Oíche Chiarraí, as it marks 40 years
since the first Kerry Person of the Year, Dr. Michael Carmody, was awarded the accolade back in
1979. To celebrate this occasion, we have selected a venue for 2019 that goes right back to the
origins of the Kerry Association in Dublin. The initial and fundamental objective of the Kerry
Association in Dublin was to welcome and entertain Kerry teams and their supporters on the
occasion of major games in Croke Park. This year our Gala Dinner will take place in the Premium
Suite in Croke Park Stadium on Saturday evening, 30th March.

The recipients of the Kerry Person of the Year award for 2019 and the 2019 group award, Laochra
Chiarraí, will be formally presented with their awards that night.
Always a fantastic night, be sure to save the date for what promises to be a wonderful Kerry
celebration and don’t forget to tell your friends!

We have also block booked rooms for the night in the Croke Park Hotel across the road from the
venue. €219 for a single room / €249 for a double or twin. To book please call the Croke Park Hotel
directly on (01) 871 4444 and quote BOOK300319 to avail of these Kerry Association rates.
Saturday 30th March is also the eve of the 2019 Allianz League Football Final in Croke Park. Who
knows who might be in Croke Park the next day?

Friday 4th – Sunday 6th October 2019
Silver Jubilee Weekend Away – Tralee

2019 marks the 25th Kerry Association annual weekend away for which we will be returning to Kerry
