This Christmas at The Europe Hotel & Resort, Bertie Bear’s cousin Charlie Bear has come all the way from Bearhaven to help raise money for the children’s charity - Children’s Health Foundation at Temple Street, Dublin to bring comfort, care and company to over 130,000 babies, boys and girls undergoing treatment across the country.

Last year when Bertie Bear was staying at The Europe Hotel & Resort, he began thinking about all the children across Ireland who need care and treatment. He went to the manager of The Europe Hotel & Resort and said “These children have a lot to bear, and they shouldn’t bear it alone, what they need is a bear to share at hospital or at home!”

The hotel manager agreed and soon they had a plan in place to get Bertie Bear to as many children as possible while raising much needed funds to help children’s charities. And that’s a big job. This year, Charlie Bear is looking for your help.

For a €20 donation, you will receive a Charlie Bear who is super soft and cuddly, dressed in The Europe Hotel & Resort’s red jumper, while helping to spread the care. Charlie Bear can stay with you or you can give him to any child you think would like his company. The best news is that one hundred percent of the proceeds made from the sale of Charlie Bear will go straight to Children’s Health Foundation at Temple Street, Dublin.

Everyone who donates to receive a Charlie Bear will also be entered to win an overnight stay at The Europe Hotel & Resort with dinner, bed and full Irish breakfast in a deluxe Lakeview room for two people sharing.

To donate and receive your Charlie Bear visit www.theeurope.com.

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
