An online craft beer shop, craftbeersdelivered.com, has this week been launched by Celtic Whiskey, Ireland’s leading whiskey experts.

Whilst whiskey might have been their first passion, the team are also equally as passionate about craft beer and the new site will deliver all over Ireland, the UK and Europe.

Creating the time to start up this new venture was difficult - until lockdown came along - and Julie Christie (Head of Marketing), Luke Crowley-Holland (Celtic Whiskey Bar & Larder General Manager), James Holohan (Marketing Specialist) and Colm O’Connor (Celtic Whiskey Wholesale Manager), decided to create the new service.

Craft Beers Delivered strives to help customers discover their favourite beers as well as source speciality bottlings and limited editions from craft breweries in Ireland and across the globe. Customers in Ireland, the UK and Europe will be able to purchase popular and one of a kind craft beers from the website and enjoy in the comfort of their own home.

The website will feature an impressive gift selection whereby carefully crafted sets of 6, 12 and 24 have been selected for the beer novice to enthusiast! Beer tastings will also take pride of place, where customers can purchase a rotating 6 pack of unique beers and Craft Beers Delivered will email you the details for a Zoom tasting. The in-depth tastings will run twice a month and include a chat on all things beer, discovering delicious tasting notes and much more!

“For quite some time now, we have been looking to delve further into the craft beer world," owner Ally Alpine, founder of the Celtic Whiskey brand and Craft Beers Delivered, said.

"Since opening the Celtic Whiskey Bar & Larder in 2016, we have taken our interest to a new level and developed strong ties with the craft beer community. We wanted to combine this passion and enthusiasm with an online store, resulting in Craft Beers Delivered, because everyone should get to enjoy great beer!"

In 2017, Irish craft beer consumption had increased by 12.7 percent and in 2018, the Irish craft beer market share was 2.8 percent, up from 2.5 percent a year previous. Production of craft beer also increased by 10.7 percent accounting for 1.9 percent of overall beer production in Ireland which shows great promise for the sector.

Killarney will play a crucial role in the revival of four-day Kerry Group Rás Mumhan cycle race.

The event, one of the biggest road races in Ireland. It has not run since 2019 after Killorglin Cycling Club withdrew from organising it.
The organisation of Rás Mumhan was transferred to a committee in County Tipperary but they never got the event off the ground as a result of the pandemic.

A new joint effort between four cycling clubs in Kerry has taken over the running of the event under new race director Daithi Creedon and his committee.

It will be the first major Stage Race on the Irish Cycling Calendar and will take place over the four days of Easter weekend from April 15 to April 18.

Killarney Cycling club will run the second leg of the event – a stage from the town to Sneem via Bealach Oisin Pass on Easter Saturday.

The opening leg will be hosted by Tralee Manor West BC and will start and finish in the county town and run via Annascaul and Castlemaine.

Sliabh Luachra Cycling Club is in charge of day three which takes in Knocknagree, Rathmore and Kishkeam.

The final day is in the hands of Currow Cycling Club and they will run the Knocknagoshel to Headley’s Bridge looped stage.

“This year’s route will allow the riders to race every day, with undulating roads and deliberately staying away from big category 1 climbs, this will open up the race for aggressive racing. Stage four will be a spectator friendly stage and will be a great finale to Rás Mumhan,” said Creedon.

“We wish to acknowledge and thank Killorglin Cycling Club for the fantastic work they have carried out in promoting and running this event in the past.”

The continued growth, development and participation of women’s handball in Kerry was rewarded at the weekend when Tyrone hosted ‘She’s Ace’, the prestigious All Ladies Handball championships.

Attracting all the leading players in Ireland, it was the Spa/Killarney trio of Aoife Walsh, Sinead Moriarty and Niamh Faulds who shot out the Northern lights with a phenomenal display of handball.

In the Ladies ‘Challenger 1 Wall’ competition Aoife Walsh faced a top-class field.

Following quarter and semi-final wins, she went into the final with the favourites tag.

Walsh again produced a sizzling display of handball to outclass her opponent, Emma O’Neill (Tyrone), to clinch the title on a 15-4 scoreline.

There was further joy for the Spa based club when one of their promising new players, Sinead Moriarty, teamed up with Clare Conway (Tyrone) and Carla Corcoran (Tyrone) in the Mixed Grade team competition.

Twelve teams contested this competition with Moriarty key to their success. In the opening rounds the team scored 25-16 and 25-20 to reach the final where they had an impressive 25-22 victory in a classic game that showcased the finer skills of handball.

The other Killarney competitor, Niamh Faulds added to her growing reputation with some impressive games in the “1 Wall’, ‘4 Wall’ and team competitions, winning one game and narrowly loosing out in the other games despite close 25-18, 21-19, 21-17 score-lines.

“This has been a historic and important weekend for women’s handball in Kerry. Winning titles is a massive boost for the sport and something we can build on in the coming weeks and months,” said Jack O’Shea, P.R.O. of the Kerry Handball Board.
