Cars and Coffee Killarney is back

Published

on

Cars and Coffee Killarney is back after an extended break and the first show of the year will take place on July 19 at the KC Print factory in Lissivigeen.

Founded last August, by the Killarney Advertiser’s Cormac Casey and his motoring friends, the laid back monthly car show proved a hit with car lovers in the county and attracted an eclectic mix of classic, racing and modern cars over the course of the four events that ran last year.

Cars and Coffee was due to return in February for the 2020 season but Storm Denis put an end to it and COVID-19 restrictions intervened in March meaning none of the planned monthly shows took place at all this season.

With life slowly returning to normal the first show has now been scheduled for July 19 and will continue monthly until further notice. Last year it ran from July to November on the third Sunday of the month.

Like all events, the running of Cars and Coffee depends on the current restrictions that may be in place at the time of the show, and car owners are asked to pre-register their attendance via killarneycarsandcoffee@gmail.com.

Strict social distancing rules will apply for the event and spectator numbers will be limited and controlled. The event will get underway at 10am.

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.”
