Ballyspillane Feud: Four men banned from Killarney

Killarney Gardai said there will be more arrests in relation to the anti-social behaviour issues at Ballyspillane over the Christmas period.

Superintendent Flor Murphy told the Killarney Advertiser the investigation “is very much live and on-going,” after court appearances this week.

Four men appeared before Killarney District Court on Tuesday.

They faced charges in relation to a violent disorder incident in Ballyspillane over the Christmas period.

Following Tuesday’s court session the four men – aged in their 20s and 40s – were told they were barred from Killarney and were only allowed in to the town for court and police investigation reasons.

As part of Operation Spider, a policing response to public order incidents during the Christmas period in Killarney, Gardaídealt with incidents of violent disorder in the Ballyspillane area between December 24 and 25, 2020.

During this violent disorder a number of homes and cars were damaged, people assaulted, and weapons used.

“This brings the total number of arrests to 13 in relation to these incidents,” Mr Murphy told the Killarney Advertiser.

Five of these are currently before the courts while the other four are juveniles and will be dealt with under the Juvenile Diversion Programme.

This is in addition to the four men who were arrested on Monday and detained at Tralee and Killarney Garda Stations under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984.

It’s back – and not before time – the hugely popular Killarney Rotary Club evening of Wine and Art will return this November.

The pandemic enforced its absence and now every effort is being made to make up for lost time.

Widely regarded as one of the social highlights of the year in Killarney, this year’s gathering will take place in the Great Southern Killarney on Wednesday, November 30, commencing at 7.15pm.

Tickets, which will be available at the door, are priced at €20 and all proceeds raised on the night will go to deserving local charities and community organisations.

Over the years the evening of wine and art has raised tens of thousands of Euro for great causes and the 2022 proceeds will be of enormous benefit to the chosen groups.

This year, once again, the event is being held in association with Daly’s SuperValu and supported by Killarney Brewing and Distilling Company.

Rotary Club President, Rayla Tadjimatova, has appealed to all artists who might like to showcase their work on the night to get in touch with club members, as soon as possible, to guarantee inclusion.

“We are reaching out not only to artists who have supported the event in the past but to any new artists who wish to take the opportunity to place their work in front of a very appreciative local audience of up to one thousand people on the night,” she said.

Those interested should email killarneyrotaryclub@gmail.com as soon as possible.
