After 25 years at Killarney Credit Union you'd think nothing would surprise them - but two staff members were left pleasantly shocked when colleagues acknowledged their years of hard work.

Brendan Lynch and Therese Buckley are two long standing staff members which the public have come to know and love, and both are celebrating 25 years of service.

Staff at the credit union made a surprise presentation in recognition of their service and dedication on Friday last. 

​​​Brendan began working in Killarney Credit Union in November 1995 whilst Therese began in June 1996. Both are now Team Leaders and Senior Loan Officers in Killarney Credit Union.

Through their time there they have become an invaluable asset to the team and the company.

They are widely known and respected by the many members that come into the Killarney branch, according to Mark Murphy, CEO.

“Their dedication to the members is exemplary," he said.

"As long as I know Therese and Brendan I am aware of how highly they are regarded by the members. Their work and professionalism is second to none. It is not often we get to say thank you, and we were delighted with the opportunity to say a huge thank you to Brendan and Therese. We wish them many more years of happiness and health in Killarney Credit Union."

Ian O’Connell said he is delighted with the messages of support following his first broadcast as a presenter on Radio Kerry this week.

The well-known and popular Killarney man was left with life-changing injuries after falling from his bike in Killarney National Park in 2017.

Since the accident he has been a champion for the less fortunate under his mantra: “If you can’t stand up – standout”.

This was the inspiration behind his brand new radio show which aired for the first time on Wednesday evening.

‘Stand Out with Ian O’Connell’ will feature interviews with people who have overcome great adversary to reach even greater heights.

His first guest was fellow Killarney man Jordan Lee. The Paralympian represented Ireland in the Tokyo Olympics this summer.

“I was used to being in the studio from people interviewing me, but this time I turned the table,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“It was great to have Jordan on, two Killarney men! I really enjoyed it, it got a massive reaction and I got loads of emails and messages afterwards and into Thursday morning.”

Ian will reveal his guest for the show on the previous Monday through various social media channels.
