The Red Fox Inn annual charity walk to St Finian’s Holy Well in Glenbeigh is set to take place this Easter Monday.

This is the sixth year of the walk, which has already raised over €18,000 for local charities, and this year’s money will be donated to Cromane Community Preschool.

The walk takes in an 8km looped route from the Red Fox Inn to St Finian’s Well, where there will be a special Mass, before returning to the Red Fox for refreshments and live entertainment with Celtic Steps. Bus transport will be in place for anyone who wishes to attend the Mass but are unable to partake in the 8km walk.

Entry costs €20 per family, €10 per adult and €5 per child. Registration for the walk takes place at the Red Fox from 11am, and all are welcome.

Cromane Community Preschool is a charitable and not-for-profit service that provides affordable quality preschool and afterschool services for the families living in Cromane and its surrounds. The school will soon move to its new state-of-the-art facility in upper Cromane.

“We are very grateful to be chosen as the beneficiaries of this year’s Holy Well Walk,” Mary Counihan, Chairperson of Cromane Community Preschool, said. “It is a wonderful day out for all the family, and we encourage everyone to come along and support it.”

County Kerry is now bearing the full brunt of Storm Barra and the Kerry Severe Weather Coordination Team reminds everyone that a Status RED weather warning, the highest such warning, remains in place for Kerry until 9pm.

Kerry County Council is advising people to avoid the Ballycasheen area of Killarney

Due to the significant risk to life and property, members of the public should remain indoors and not travel for the rest of the evening. Everyone is advised to follow updates on weather warnings from Met Éireann as well as the local media and social media.

There are an increasing number of roads closed or blocked because of fallen trees, electricity poles and spot flooding. Council crews will respond to issues when it is safe to do so and with the assistance of other agencies where required.

The N71 road at the Suspension Bridge in Kenmare remains closed to traffic as does the N70 Tralee to Castlemaine Road at the hairpin bends. There are a significant number of local and regional and local roads blocked or partially blocked by fallen trees, electricity poles and debris in all parts of the county so travel should be avoided.

The Ballycasheen Road in Killarney and Main Street in Ballybunion (and the surrounding area) should be avoided due to concerns about potential falling debris.

The Council’s emergency contact number is 066 7183588 and it will be operational through this evening and tonight.

Fallen electricity wires/poles and power outages should be reported to ESB Networks on 1800 372 999.
