THIS time last year Julett Culloty had taken centre stage to represent her county in the Rose of Tralee and the bubbly young Kilcummin lady was delighted to return to the county town to renew friendships and support her successor in this year’s festival.

And the social whirl doesn’t stop there for Julett, who this evening will be joining Majella O’Donnell a host of others who have recovered from cancer as they take to the catwalk in the INEC for the Models in Recovery fashion show in aid of the Killarney branch of the Kerry Hospice Foundation. “It is such a positive event, we’re all in recovery and we all have different stories,” Julett told the Killarney Advertiser.

“We often only hear the negative stories when we think of cancer. It can be so frightening; people think of the worst-case scenario but this fashion show celebrates people getting through the experience so it really is a fantastic cause to be supporting.”

Julett was diagnosed with cervical cancer in April 2014. “I began my treatment in June of that year. I had intensive chemotherapy and radiotherapy,” she said. Fortunately Julette got the all-clear in October 2014.

She is keen to spread the message of positivity and hope to others. “News of diagnosis is obviously a blow. I remember when I was dealing with it, the best advice I got was from my uncle, Dan Reidy, who said: ‘Look, we’ll get through today, and as for what’s coming tomorrow, we’ll deal with that then.’ That concept of taking things day by day was so helpful, particularly when there was so much racing through my head.”

Co-ordinated by Margaret Walsh O’Donoghue, the fashion show will be preceded by a wine reception at 7pm sharp. Tickets, €15, are available from Pat Doolan, chairman, Killarney branch of Kerry Hospice Foundation, 085-1543514, or participating shops.

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.”
