Killarney Camera Club will prepare for its 20th anniversary by hosting an online open night on September 16.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions the club has been unable to meet in person so it is inviting current and potential new members to an online Zoom meeting next Thursday.

Newly appointed club chair Yvette O’Shea will give an outline of activities planned for the year head including details of a special exhibition to mark two decades of the club.

The club’s Photographer of the Year, Keith Johnson will also give a presentation of his work.

“We are delighted to have recently recommenced going on outings taking in Ardfert, the Dingle peninsula and Glanteenassig Park over the summer and finishing with a weekend workshop on the wonderful Dingle peninsula. We are currently planning a weekend visit to our friends in the East Cork Camera Club in late September,” club secretary Anne Kelly told the Killarney Advertiser.

“We run seven themed competitions over the course of the year and the entries are gently critiqued by two experienced members which is a great way to learn how to improve our photos.”

New members should contact secretary@killarneycamerclub.ie and the club will send a Zoom link for the meeting.

Meetings will continue every second Thursday at 7.30 pm from September to June. They will take place online for the time being but the club hopes to return to physical meetings at the Brehon Hotel either later this year or earlier next year.

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!”
