Call for Puck Fair volunteers

Organisers of this weekend’s Puck Fair are looking for volunteers to help assist in the running of Ireland’s oldest festival.

The three day event gets underway in Killorglin at 6am tomorrow morning with the traditional horse fair. Other major events planned include two parades, one on Saturday and second one on Sunday at 5pm both days.

Committee members also need volunteers to help run the fireworks display on Monday night to mark the closing of the festival.

“Car parking will need to be brisk on Saturday morning,” said volunteer coordinator Noreen O’Sullivan. “The two parades are big events and we would need people from around 4pm to 6.30pm both days. If there are people available please let us know, we will always have a job to do at different times in the day, and night, even if it’s for only an hour to cover breaks.”

 

Volunteers can contact the festival office on 066 9762366 to register their interest.

The pupils and staff of Two Mile Community National School were delighted to welcome Mr Norio Maruyama,  the Japanese Ambassador to Ireland on Tuesday.

The Ambassador was at the school to promote the teaching of the Japanese language and culture through the ‘Say Yes to Languages’ programme.

“The pupils in Two Mile were very interested to listen to stories about Japan and to learn about the links between our two countries,” said school principal Catherine Barry.
“As a multi-denominational school, we are very open to different languages and cultures and we look forward to working with the Japanese embassy from next September.”
Two Mile Community National School is the only multi-denominational school in the Killarney school district.
