Killarney Chamber of Tourism and Commerce and Tralee Chamber Alliance are joining forces to present what should be very informative and enlightening presentations on the rates revaluation process.

Events will take place in both Killarney and Tralee with members of all chambers welcome to attend.

The keynote speaker at both gatherings will be Terry Fahey, Director of the National Revaluation Programme and the talks will be followed by questions and answers sessions during which he will strive to address any specific issues that arise.

Revaluation 2023 is a national programme aimed at ensuring that the rateable valuation of all commercial and industrial property reflects the current business environment.

The aim is that following revaluation, there will be a more uniform relationship between the annual rental values of commercial properties and their commercial rates liability.

The Valuation Office has published the new valuations and they will be effective from 2024 onwards and mixed properties of domestic and commercial use will only be assessed on the commercial element of the property.

The Tralee presentation will be held tomorrow (Thursday) in the Grand Hotel on Denny Street from 10.30am to 11.55am. Email colette@tralee.ie to register attendance at the Tralee event.

The Killarney event, also tomorrow (Thursday), will be held in the Gleneagle Hotel, Muckross Road from 3pm to 4.25pm and those interested in attending should click here to register attendance.

Jumpers have helped to raise almost €10k so far – but now it’s a very special jersey which could drive the fundraising numbers up!

A Kerry football jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team is up for grabs via a fundraising link once a donation is made to the Presents for Palliative fundraiser.

On Friday eight local schools including Holy Cross Mercy, Killarney Community College, Presentation Monastery, Lissivigeen, St Brendan’s College, St Brigid’s, St Francis Special School, and St Oliver’s
swapped their uniforms for their most colourful festive gear with funds going to help the amazing services in the Palliative Care Unit/Kerry Hospice Foundation.

“The day took place across the schools involved last Friday (December 2) and looks like it has been a success,” teacher Elaine Moynihan from St Brendan’s College told the Killarney Advertiser.

“The donations from the schools are still being counted but students look to be on their way towards making their goal of €10k.”

The iDonate ‘Fundraising For Kerry Hospice Foundation’ has been very helpful in this regard, she added.

“Anyone who donates via the link and leaves their name will be in with a chance to win a Kerry jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team which will be presented to them before Christmas by a couple of members of the team.

“This was organised by the students involved in the fundraiser as a way to say thanks, and give back, to the members of the community who have gotten involved in the event – the link is live until December 18 and the draw will be made the following day.”
