Toyota’s all new Yaris Cross SUV is making a limited debut at Kelliher’s Garage Tralee on Monday morning.

It will be the first time that the newest version of the current European Car of the Year will go on show in Kerry.

The new car is coming to Tralee as part of a nationwide Toyota roadshow but its time in Kelliher’s Garage is strictly limited to between 9.30am and 12.30pm.

”We are very excited about the launch of this new Yaris Cross SUV self-charging hybrid," dealer principal Tim Kelliher said.

"It builds on the phenomenal reputation the Toyota Yaris has enjoyed in Ireland and Kerry since it was launched in 1999. The higher driving position of the new Yaris Cross is a welcome addition and I am confident this will be a big hit with our customers both old and new. We look forward to welcoming you to our preview event on Monday. The cars are only with us for a limited three hour time frame so be sure to put the date and time in your diary."

Other new Toyota models on show include the RAV4 Plug In Hybrid and the facelifted Camry.

Killarney native Patrick O’Sullivan Greene will launch his second book in the Great Southern Killarney on December 2.

O’Sullivan Greene explains Éamon de Valera’s mission to gain recognition for the newly formed Irish republic in New York in 1919 in his latest book ‘Revolution at the Waldorf: America and the Irish War of Independence’.

Without American recognition and funding the young Irish Government was sure to fail against the might of the British Empire and the book tells the story of how de Valera and Ireland-based Michael Collins – much to the defiance of the British authorities at Dublin Castle – got the new State off the ground.

O’Sullivan grew up in New Street and is now based in Beaufort after a career in finance took him all over the world including Dublin, London, New York and France.

“Killarney is the natural place for me to launch the book,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“There will be an interesting mix of people there.”

O’Sullivan Greene published his first book, ‘Crowdfunding the Revolution: The First Dáil Loan and the Battle for Irish Independence’, in 2020.

One community group have shown that they care deeply for others by crafting handmade blankets for charity.

Using their range of skills and some colourful wool, members of Kilcummin Community Care worked together to make blankets for service users on the Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus.

“Each blanket is assigned as a personal gift to the clients using the Cancer Link Bus and is kept by them,” Kate Fleming, Chairperson of Kilcummin Community Care, said.

The knitting of the squares to make the blankets began at a gathering in the Rose Hotel in 2018. It was a gathering of different volunteer groups.

The Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus were requesting knitted squares to make blankets for the clients who were using their facilities, she explained.

“Kilcummin Community Care were knitting at the time, so it was decided to help out this worthy cause. We received donations of wool from people in the parish and surrounding areas. Kilcummin ICA also got involved in the efforts.”

During the two years of COVID-19, members of both organisations continued to knit and are still knitting to the present day.
