PRIZE WINNERS: Chris Davies (Business Development Manager Killarney Advertiser) pictured with PJ McGee (Daly's SuperValu Manager) announcing the winners of our 'Shop Local' campaign.

 

Our 'Shop Local' campaign finished last week and what a fantastic success it was. We saw close to 50 businesses coming together and getting behind our campaign. With a total prize pool of over €3,000 up for grabs Killarney locals really got behind the campaign.

 

We were blown away by all the entries that got posted in to us at the Killarney Advertiser. Thanks to Killarney locals, our campaign has kept thousands of Euro in our local economy this Christmas, revenue that will be vital to small businesses as we move into the New Year. A big congratulations to Paddy O’Sullivan who won the top prize of a €1,000 shopping voucher for Daly’s SuperValu. Paddy was delighted to learn he has scooped top prize.

"I am absolutely delighted, I had three tickets got but I was missing the green one, my partner had the missing voucher and we got it in on the final day. It’s so important we support all our small local businesses now more than ever, and I just want to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas.”

We have shared the winners details with the participating stores so if your name is on the list below please get in touch with them directly to collect your prize. Please note, businesses will check your phone and email details to validate you are the winner.

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
