Cathal drops colourful ‘All We Need’ video

Talented local musician Cathal Flaherty dropped his latest single to widespread acclaim this past week with the video already racking up tens of thousands of views on Facebook and YouTube.

Cathal enlisted the help of Kieran Healy (electric guitar), Patrick O’Connor (drums) and Brendan O’Connor (piano, keyboard, synth, producer) to record All We Need at Little Dylan Studios. The song has been warmly received by fans at home and abroad and, speaking to the Advertiser, Cathal said he was “delighted” with the reaction so far.

“I think the video has 35,000 views,” he said, “and the song was sent off to radio on Monday so we’ll see how that goes.”

The video, which was recorded and edited by Lucas Machowski, shows Cathal singing and playing guitar while getting doused in colourful paint.

“Because this is more of an upbeat song I had the idea of using a lot of paint. I changed my mind a few times about that to be honest.”

While the rest of us were preparing for the Beast from the East, Cathal was already dealing with a different kind of cold.

“I didn’t realise how cold the paint was going to be,” he admitted. “I might not look like I was in a lot of pain, but I was. It turned out well in the end.”

The single is available to download on iTunes, Apple Music and Spotify. Simply search ‘Cathal Flaherty’ and you can watch the video right down at the end of this article!

Cathal has also announced two special shows which will take place this summer. First off he’ll take to the INEC Acoustic Club to launch his new EP The Head and Heart on Friday, May 25. Tickets are €12 ex. booking fee and are available at ticketmaster.ie and INEC.ie.

He’ll then headline Dublin’s iconic Whelan’s on Sunday, June 3. Tickets available at whelanslive.ie.

Tributes have been paid to Peggy O’Callaghan, who was laid to rest on Tuesday of this week.

Peggy played a central role in all activities related to Kilcummin parish. She passed away peacefully at her home on Friday, January 7.

Peggy and her husband Michael founded Kilcummin Scor in 1978 – the music and drama arm of the local GAA club.

“It afforded the opportunity to females to participate in club activities long before ladies’ football was initiated and it brought many people into the club, many of whom remained involved in different capacities over the years,” said a club statement.

“She has left us a wonderful legacy and will be remembered fondly by those lucky enough to have met her.”

Peggy will be sadly missed by her husband Michael, sons Diarmuid and Shane, daughters-in-law Trisha and Áine, grandchildren Dara, Caoimhe, Donnacha, Siún and Éabha, brothers Seánie and Frank, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews, extended family, neighbours and friends.

Plans to link the Monsignor O’Flaherty Road with New St via a new road at Bohereen na Goun have been announced by Killarney Municipal District.

Town engineer John Ahern told Wednesday’s Killarney Municipal District Meeting between elected councillors and senior council executives that Kerry County Council intends to make a compulsory purchase order on lands that will link the two town centre streets.

If plans come to fruition it will be possible for motorists on New St to get to the top of High St, adjacent to the Killarney Advertiser’s town centre office, without travelling through the town centre. The plan was first mooted as far back as 2016.

The announcement caught councillors off guard, it was one of the last topics discussed at the four-hour meeting, but it was broadly welcomed by all.

“This access will change the dynamic of traffic movement in the town forever,” said Cllr Niall Kelleher.

Further details of the surprise project are set to be revealed to elected members over the next four to six weeks.
