THE team at Daly’s SuperValu in Killarney saddled up along with other SuperValu stores across Kerry and Ireland to support the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle. The Ring of Kerry is the largest one-day charity fundraising event in Munster and celebrated its 30th year last year.

Taking place on Saturday, July 2, the event welcomes thousands of leisure cyclists from across Ireland as they embark on a 180km journey along the spectacular Ring of Kerry to raise much needed funds for worthy Kerry-based causes.

Daly’s SuperValu owner Bill Daly said: “We are delighted to partner with the Ring of Kerry Cycle for 2016. Being an independent retailer, living and working in Killarney, we see at first hand the great community causes that are supported each year by the money raised and the benefit it brings to the local economy. We wish all participants and volunteers an enjoyable and safe event in 2016.”

Cathal Walshe, PRO of the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle, added: “We’ve been working hard preparing for the 2016 edition of the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle and this year’s event is shaping up to be the best yet. Not alone does this event benefit worthwhile charities at a local level, but bringing over 11,000 cyclists and their supporters to the area provides a huge local economic boost.”

SuperValu is on a mission to get the whole country cooking more and to build a healthier nation with its Good Food Karma Project.
The aim of the campaign is to get people cooking one more meal from scratch every week along with making key lifestyle choices around what they eat.

SuperValu is working with an army of foodies including celebrity chefs Kevin Dundon, Seafood chef Martin Shanahan and Sharon Hearne Smith, athletes David Gillick, Bernard Brogan and Anna Geary, The Happy Pear, Daniel Davey and Inspiring Foodies Conor Bereen, Marc Bereen, Duncan Maguire, Federico Riezzo and Ciaran McGonagle.

If you are in training for the Ring of Kerry or want some inspirational recipes with mealtime tips call into your Daly’s SuperValu or visit supervalu.ie. Join the Happy Pear brothers Stephen and David for a cooking demonstration on Saturday, July 2, at the New Street Car Park, Killarney, plus meet some of the SuperValu Food Academy suppliers.

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.”
