CONGRATULATIONS to Katie Digby from Beaufort who was the recipient of an award for academic excellence by the Institute of Certified Public Accountants in Ireland (CPA Ireland) as she was conferred with membership of CPA Ireland on Saturday last in Croke Park. The award marks her accomplishments in the CPA Ireland examinations and best performance in the paper on Auditing.

At this week’s ceremony, which took place in Croke Park in Dublin, Ireland’s newest accountants had many reasons to celebrate. In addition to being admitted to the institute, the members of the Class of 2016 were also celebrating the strong career prospects for professional accountants. High demand for newly qualified CPAs has resulted in full employment for this year’s graduates.

Speaking at the ceremony, Nano Brennan CPA Ireland President, said: “I am delighted to welcome my new CPA colleagues to the profession as we mark our 90th anniversary. Our anniversary takes place against the positive backdrop of demand for professional accountants and growth in the wider economy. The full employment for this year’s graduating class clearly shows that it is a valuable qualification and one that opens a lot of doors both nationally and internationally. I would like to congratulate all of our newest CPAs for their hard work and achievements to date.”

“In conjunction with our sponsors, CPA Ireland each year present an award to those students who have achieved the highest examination mark in each subject for the CPA examinations. Congratulations to the 2016 prize-winners who come from diverse roles in both practice and industry and thank you to all our partner firms involved in this event.”

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.”
