Nominate your Frontline Hero for a chance to win one of 50 luxurious 5* stays at The Europe  Hotel & Resort, Killarney

 

The Europe Hotel & Resort is excited to reopen its doors and welcome guests from July 8, and cannot think of a better way of saying a massive 'thank you' to Ireland’s frontline heroes with the hotel’s biggest ever giveaway of 50 luxurious overnight stays in the stunning five-star lakeside resort.

Each winner will receive overnight accommodation in one of their spacious Lakeview Rooms, boasting spectacular views across Killarney’s lakes and mountains, for two people sharing. The sumptuous experience also includes full breakfast in The Panorama Restaurant, a fabulous dinner in The Brasserie Restaurant, a bottle of Moët & Chandon on ice awaiting in the room upon arrival and The Europe’s iconic Bertie the Bear to take home.

Not all heroes wear capes, and in these recent months, Ireland’s frontline heroes have been extraordinary, going above and beyond to keep our country safe, caring for the most vulnerable and showing extreme bravery, placing their own health at risk in the pursuit of helping others.

“We have missed our guests and colleagues and cannot wait to reopen our doors,” Michael Brennan, Managing Director of Killarney Hotels Ltd., said.

“Each of the 50 lucky winners will receive a well-deserved pampering break and it will be our honour to look after them. We are delighted to contribute and say thank you to our frontline workers, and would love to see other hotels and resorts following suit. This time has been incredibly challenging for everyone and we hope that this will make 50 people and their guests very happy.”

This fantastic giveaway will run from today (June 22) to July 10.

Katie celebrates 20 years in business

If you enjoy what you do, sure it’s not work at all – and that has been the case for Katie Hickey who has been in business locally for two decades.

For the past 20 years Katie has been successfully running Sheer Beauty which is now located at 1 Hogans Lane (Hillary’s Lane).



She said that it was a milestone she felt she may not reach on more than one occasion after coming through a pandemic, a recession, a re-location, and three maternity leaves.

However, she said that the loyalty of her clients over the years have given her great encouragement.

“Sincere thanks to my clients past and present who, without doubt, have been the reason I kept going,” Katie said.

Originally located in Fleming’s Lane for 19 years, Katie then re-located her business to Hogan’s Lane in Norma’s Flair for Hair.

“The beauty industry has evolved so drastically over the past 20 years. For me it is keeping things simple and enjoyable. Realising a client’s needs may not be the treatment itself but the time you give to them. Through the years you get to know your clients so well and some beautiful friendships have developed. I hope my clients have gained from me what I have from them. I have so many people I would like to thank and I will personally, but without doubt my husband Andrew and my family, 20 years in business would not have been achieved.

“

She has remained loyal to the brands she has carried over the years including Lycon Waxing, Aviva Tanning, Shellac and Jessica Manicure and Pedicure.

“I was also delighted to bring on board the fabulous facial range that is Killarney Organic. Killarney has been incredibly kind to me. I’m so proud to be part of such a wonderful community. If the past 19 months have proved anything for business it is together we are stronger.”

The Kerry County GAA Board said it would operate “an open door policy” for any plans to build a GAA museum in the county.

There have been talks at a political level to build such a museum in Kerry with political rivals in Killarney and Tralee both pushing for it to be built in their home town.

Before he retired from politics in April, Michael Gleeson was campaigning to build a GAA and cultural museum on the grounds of Fitzgerald Stadium.

His campaign goes back several years before the recession set in, with a €0.5 million bridging loan secured from Croke Park along with funding from Fáilte Ireland. That funding was lost with the onset of the recession before 2010.

Tim Murphy, the outgoing chairman of the Kerry County Board, has confirmed to the Killarney Advertiser that no approaches have been made to the County Board at executive level during his five year stint at the helm.

However, he said the Board would be open to such approaches provided there is sound financial planning behind the project in place.

“The first and most important aspect is the capital funding and my understanding is there needs to be Fáilte Ireland funding in place first,” he told the Killarney Advertiser. “If it gets up and running, there needs to be very clear talks with all stakeholders so everyone knows each others expectations. A museum attracts footfall, but it costs a lot of money to run. We would offer an open door policy to all proposals but funding, first from a capital point of view and then from an operational point of view, will need to be in place.”
