Mayor of Killarney, Cllr Marie Moloney, travelled through the town in style during the St Patrick’s Day Parade on Thursday last.

ON THE ROAD: Jordan Lee onboard his Toyota RAV4 at the St Patrick's Day Parade last Thursday.

Glenbeigh-based classic car restoration and hire specialists Pristine Classics, operated by Florian Seidler, provided a 1958 Bentley S1 for the occasion.

His company specialises in the sales and restoration of classic cars. He also provides high-end cars to wedding parties and has recently started a new branch of the business where car fans can hire a classic car for a day or a week and take it on traditional driving routes in Kerry. Another arm of the business is classic car syndication of classic cars allowing for shared ownership of an otherwise out of reach motor.

Last Thursday’s parade was the first time he was invited to participate in the Killarney St Patrick’s Day festivities.

“It was a very good thing to be part of,” he told the Killarney Advertiser. “It is a lovely looking car and everybody was delighted to see it.”

Members of Killarney Valley Classic and Vintage Club also took part in the parade.

They were the only car enthusiasts in the event. Local Paralympian Jordan Lee, as part of his brand ambassador role with Kelliher’s Garage and Toyota Ireland, also took part in his Toyota RAV4.

She is best known for promoting the county’s GAA news – and now Leona Twiss has been rewarded for her efforts.

The Gaelic Games Writers’ Association named Leona as its Public Relations Officer of the Year at an awards ceremony at Iveagh Gardens in Dublin on Friday night last.

Leona has been the PRO for Kerry GAA for the last five years but will have to step down this year due to County Board rules.

“I was speechless, it was wonderful to get PRO of the Year but I am only as good as the team around me and this success is attributed to the hard work of the entire PR team at Kerry GAA,” she told the Killarney Advertiser.

As well as her busy schedule managing the media affairs for the Kerry County Board, Leona is also principal at Cullina National School in Beaufort.

On the eve of the final of the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest, President Zelensky said “Ukrainians need victory – big and small”.

That is why Ukrainians who gathered around the world on Saturday night were waiting for Ukraine’s win in the song contest, just like the victory in the war.

The Ukrainians from the Innisfallen Hotel were waiting for that too and the overall winner, Ukrainian band Kalush Orchestra, caused a real emotional storm in the hall!

“After my country’s victory at Eurovision, I felt proud, cried, laughed and couldn’t believe it. I am also grateful to everyone who voted for us, because this victory shows how much most European countries support us,” Iryna Melnychuk said.

“Voting around the world for Ukraine gives us hope for support from the world community not only in the Eurovision Song Contest,” said Stepan Krasnenkov.

The Ukrainian band Kalush Orchestra received the highest number of points from the audience during the entire existence of the competition: 439 points from the audience, 192 points from the professional jury. In the end – 631 points, which brought Ukraine victory.

Also, thanks to the Kalush Orchestra, the whole world now knows about the humanitarian catastrophe in Mariupol and the Azovstal enterprises, where wounded Ukrainian soldiers and civilians are under blockade without food, water and medicine.

After their performance, Kalush Orchestra addressed the audience from around the world with a request to save the defenders of Mariupol, who are at the Azovstal plant.

“Please help Ukraine, Mariupol! Help Azovstal! Right now!” – the band called.

After these words, search queries for Azovstal and Mariupol took off on the Internet as people were looking for what they meant.

Irish Eurovision contestant Brooke also sang it and the whole world sings the song of the winners ‘Stefania’.
