MICHAEL FASSBENDER has received a BAFTA nomination for his role in Steve Jobs. He will be up against Eddie Redmayne for The Danish Girl, Matt Damon, Bryan Cranston and Leonardo DiCaprio.
Overall, the awards season is proving to be a busy one for the homegrown Hollywood star. Michael was spotted out and about as he enjoyed a break in Killarney over Christmas before jetting Stateside to accept a coveted International Star Award at the 27th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala last Sunday.
His co-star in the movie Steve Jobs, Kate Winslet, presented Michael with the prestigious award.
The Killarney star spent the festive season at home in his native Fossa, where his parents Adele and Josef live.
We wish him all the best as he takes centre stage at another glittering awards ceremony this weekend. Michael’s dazzling turn as the Apple co-founder and CEO, has also led to his nomination for Best Actor in a Lead Role, Drama, in this Sunday’s Golden Globes. The in-demand star has been shooting actioner Assassin’s Creed with his Macbeth director Justin Kurzel in the UK.

Spa GAA club has signed up to participate in the Ireland Lights Up winter walking initiative.

The lights will be on every Wednesday night between 7pm and 8pm for the next few weeks at the club’s new walking track. This week marked the second week of night walking but the club also held a candle-light vigil in memory of Ashling Murphy, the Offaly school-teacher who was murdered while out for a walk two weeks ago.

“Participants can follow the walking track that offers a safe off-road path and this activity is open to everyone in the community. If anyone would be available to help with registration or stewarding any night, all help is greatly appreciated,” said club PRO Deirdre O’Sullivan-Darcy.

Any volunteers that can help any evening or any questions please contact Margaret Doyle on 0879181970.

Killarney Municipal District is to appoint the services of a tree specialist to exam the condition of trees in the wider district.

The move follows last December’s Storm Barra. during which several tress were toppled. 
One motorist had a lucky escape when a tree fell on their car during the storm. Another fallen tree blocked access to the Moll’s Gap road near Muckross.
Both Cllrs John O’Donoghue and Donal Grady raised the issue at a recent Killarney Municipal District meeting.
“In order to mitigate against such events, the Killarney MD Office are in the process of preparing tender documents to procure assessment of specific trees that are in the charge of Kerry County Council.” A council official told the meeting.
“This will allow the MD to make determinations on individual trees in its charge. Individual property owners are responsible for the welfare and maintenance of trees within and along the boundary of their property lines.”
