WHAT better way to celebrate 50 years of love and marriage than by returning to the place where it all began? Having held their wedding breakfast in The Gleneagle Hotel on September 21, 1966, Mr and Mrs Michael and Joan Griffin returned to the famous Killarney venue to mark their golden wedding anniversary.

Michael Griffin and Joan Mullins, both originally from Tralee, were married in St John’s Parish Church in Tralee on September 21, 1966, before travelling onto Killarney afterwards where The Gleneagle hosted the newlyweds and 80 members of their family and friends. “Our wedding breakfast took place in The Gleneagle Hotel, where we were treated very well and so decided to book the same venue 50 years later,” said Joan Griffin.

The happy couple, who now reside in Caherciveen, were once again joined for a celebratory meal at the hotel by 80 friends and family members including their children and grandchildren. “We were overwhelmed with our party as were all our friends too,” said Joan. “The staff looked after us so well and management were excellent; we thank them for a very memorable occasion.”

The coveted KY-1 plate has been allocated to Adams of Tralee for the second year in a row.

The county’s Hyundai dealership secured the coveted plate as a result of the Hyundai Tucson topping the individual model sales charts for 2021.

Available in diesel, petrol and pug-in hybrid, the Tucson offers something for every motorists.

With the switch to full electric not far away, Adams of Tralee’s general manager Marcus O’Shea believes that hybrid offers the perfect transition from fossil fuelled-cars to electric.

“It is a steeping-stone towards full electric,” he told the Killarney Advertiser. “It reduces the range anxiety for those not ready for full electric and it gets people used to new ways – plugging in the car at night at home will become normal and hybrid is the first step.”

The Tucson range has a model to suit all tastes and budgets. As well as being available in petrol, diesel or hybrid, each power variant is also available as in entry-level, mid or high specification formats.

Nicole Coffey of Nicole’s Hair Salon on St Anne’s was inspired to run a fundraiser for a women’s refuge after hearing distressing stories from some of her clients.

On Saturday last she offered a wash and blow-dry to clients and rather than charging them for the her services her customers made a donation to Adapt Women’s Refuge in Tralee.

Nicole was inspired to run the charity day because a lot of her regular clients opened up to her while they were getting their hair done.

The timing of her charity day was poignant as it came just days after Ashling Murphy was murdered while out for a run in her own town of Tullamore.

“People open up while I do their hair, many of them would not know that there is a refuge in Kerry,” she told the Killarney Advertiser. “I have experience with clients who are struggling. I had this idea to create more awareness for Adapt.”

She raised €2,000 for Adapt and the cheque was handed over to the Tralee-based charity on Thursday night this week.

Such was the success of her charity day Nicole worked from 7am to 7pm and as well as cash donations customers also donated vouchers and care packs to the charity.
