A Kilcummin man is to be remembered next weekend through a fundraiser organised in his memory. 

FUNDRAISER: The golf classic fundraiser is in memory of the late Anthony O'Sullivan from Kilcummin.

Kilcummin GAA Club are planning a golf classic in Kenmare Golf Club on Saturday, April 30.

This year, as in previous years, the event will be sponsored by a group called Family and Friends of Anthony 'Skinner' O'Sullivan. They have grouped their resources to sponsor an event which will remember their much loved friend and brother who passed away in 2017 at the age of 33. Currently they all live in Australia and would like to keep Anthony foremost in their minds as they celebrate a big day in the club's calendar.

To that end the winners of the golf competition will receive the ‘Anthony O'Sullivan Perpetual Cup’ as well as trophies sponsored by the O'Sullivan family Ballinamanagh. The group is comprised of Anthony’s brothers Patrick and Killian, Kieran Lynch, Helena and Anthony (Anto) O'Sullivan, David Healy, Patrick Buckley, Rosco Daley, John Hogarty, Johnny O'Donovan and David Harte.

The golf classic consists of teams of three for €180 while Tee boxes can be sponsored for €80. Great prizes have been lined up for the best five teams.

“We are very grateful to the Family and Friends of Anthony O'Sullivan for their continued support of the golf classic and we are delighted with the response of local businesses in sponsoring teams, tee boxes and prizes. We are looking forward to a great club outing,” Muiris Healy, from the organising committee, said.

As well as the golf prizes there are some fantastic raffle prizes up for grabs. Anyone who wants to buy lines for the raffle can do so at the Post Office in Kilcummin, the Klub Bar or by contacting Breeda on 086 8300248. For Tee times or Tee boxes contact Muiris on 086 1614136.

The award-winning Kingdom Pride in Kerry festival is back next week and Killarney will take centre stage.

Kingdom Pride will be celebrated in towns all across the county from July 17 to 21.

The organisation’s flagship Party in the Park event will be held again in Killarney House and Gardens, following the Pride march in the town centre on July 20.

This year, in solidarity with the people of Palestine, Kingdom Pride in Kerry is inviting the people of Kerry to come to show their unity by bringing Palestinian flags and kites to the march, and to the Party in the Park.

“Pride is a protest for human rights all over the world. Here in the Kingdom, we have been so lucky to receive tremendous community support from our allies and supporters, and we see the struggle for liberation of all peoples as a united cause,” said Daniel Quirke, chairperson of the organising committee.

“Our events have always welcomed everyone, regardless of gender, orientation, religion, or nationality. We truly believe that together we can create positive change through caring for and loving one another. This year is no exception, and we look forward to helping to highlight the Palestinian cause, and to bringing people together to keep generating positive change for all people.”

Events will take place in Cahersiveen, Listowel, Killorglin, Tralee and Dingle, and include an Irish comedy night with Áine Gallagher, an Irish-language movie screening, yoga, sea swimming, poetry and storytelling, bowling, pitch and putt, a lively drag night at the INEC, and plenty more for people of all ages.

“We do our best to keep tickets as low-cost as possible, and we have lots of events that are totally free to attend. It is important to us that people can share Pride with us, regardless of income. Especially with the rise of the cost of living putting a strain on people’s pockets.” added the chairperson.
