It was a surprise call but one which put a smile on a Sneem man's face this week when he heard that he had won a brand new car.

John Knightly from Sneem got a great surprise when Killarney Credit Union rang to tell him he had won a Ford Puma Titanium in the Killarney Credit Union Members Draw.

John picked up the keys of his new car from Mark Murphy, CEO Killarney Credit Union, accompanied by his wife and daughters.

“We currently have just over 2,400 members in the draw which is held twice a year," Karena McCarthy, Killarney Credit Union Marketing Officer, said.

"Our prizes include a new car and cash prizes ranging from €250 to €1,000. Our next draw will take place in January 2022.”

Members can apply for the draw at any of the branches or apply online on www.killarneycu.ie. €12 will be taken from the member's account twice a year as an entry fee.

The cash prize winners were Triona O’Connor, Joseph O’Doherty, Michael Fleming, Helen O’Sullivan, James Kissane, Collette and Eithne Willock, Mary O’Leary, Noreen Moriarty O’Sullivan, Geraldine and Gerard O’Mahony, Cecelia Ring, Sinead Buckley and Michael McCarthy.

London-based South Kerry man, Dan Tim O’Sullivan, will exercise his rights as a Freeman of the city by herding sheep over a London bridge on Sunday.

Mr O’Sullivan from Kells, was awarded the Freedom of the City of London in 2019, in recognition for his work in the construction industry.

He employs over one thousand people through his labour hire firm ‘Danny Sullivan and Sons’, and has employed countless Kerry people, many of them from his native South Kerry, since its foundation in the mid-1980s.

The Freedom of the City of London allows the bearer to herd one hundred sheep over the landmark Tower Bridge.

However, logistical issues and traffic management plans mean the number of sheep has been reduced to less than 10 and the event will now take place over nearby Southwark Bridge.
