It's not only about getting fit, it's also about helping others, as a local training group are planning a fundraising 5k for Palliative Care.

Over the past number of weeks the community of Barraduff and the surrounding areas have been putting their best foot forward as they prepare for their Couch to 5k.

Up to 80 people have been attending training in the Barraduff Community Field overseen by Declan O’Donoghue of Triumph Coaching.

Not even the cold and wintry weather could hamper the efforts of this community and all their hard work will culminate in the 5k fundraiser on Saturday, March 4 at 10am in Barraduff Community Field with donations being kindly made to Kerry Hospice - Palliative Care.

"The people from the parish of Glenflesk, Rathmore and surrounding areas have shown great dedication and motivation towards improving their fitness and well-being," Declan said.

"With their support, and the support of their family and friends, we hope March 4 will raise vital funds for this very important charity.”

Everyone is invited to this event – walk, run, jog or just pop in for a coffee.

Parking will be available in the following areas near the stadium: New Street, The Glebe car park, Fair Hill car park, High Street, Rock Road car park and the Lewis Road car park.

Parking in the vicinity of Fitzgerald Stadium is reserved for residents with parking passes only.

Killarney For Palestine is raffling two tickets to a Taylor Swift concert in Edinburgh.

The group is raising funds for the Halaq family who are known to Kerry Friends of Palestine and who are currently displaced in tents in the Gaza Strip.

Their homes were destroyed in the city of Khan Younis by Israeli airstrikes.
