A Kerry charity has been fuelled up to keep their service on the road thanks to a kind act from a Killarney business. Family run shop, service station and hardware business O’Sullivan’s Beaufort Bridge have donated fuel to the value of €1,000 to Kerry Cancer Support Group (KCSG) as part of the 'Drive Your Recovery' campaign.

The sponsored diesel will be used to fuel the Health Link Transport vehicles to hospitals in Cork and Limerick. Extra services are now being provided on these routes to ensure physical distancing in line with guidelines due to COVID-19.

“We are delighted that O’Sullivan’s have chosen us as their local charity," Breda Dyland, Manager of the Kerry Cancer Support Group, said.

"The past year has been a very anxious one for the charity and our service users but we have made the adjustments and are happy to say we have stayed on the road throughout. Knowing that locals support us always gives everyone a great boost and we stop outside the shop every day so their sponsorship means a great deal.”

She added that unfortunately, due to COVID, KCSG can no longer have an open-door policy.
"Our centre is appointment only at the moment and we always have someone at the end of the phone who is able to help and take people's details, reassure them and give information. Call 066 7195560 for information.

It’s back – and not before time – the hugely popular Killarney Rotary Club evening of Wine and Art will return this November.

The pandemic enforced its absence and now every effort is being made to make up for lost time.

Widely regarded as one of the social highlights of the year in Killarney, this year’s gathering will take place in the Great Southern Killarney on Wednesday, November 30, commencing at 7.15pm.

Tickets, which will be available at the door, are priced at €20 and all proceeds raised on the night will go to deserving local charities and community organisations.

Over the years the evening of wine and art has raised tens of thousands of Euro for great causes and the 2022 proceeds will be of enormous benefit to the chosen groups.

This year, once again, the event is being held in association with Daly’s SuperValu and supported by Killarney Brewing and Distilling Company.

Rotary Club President, Rayla Tadjimatova, has appealed to all artists who might like to showcase their work on the night to get in touch with club members, as soon as possible, to guarantee inclusion.

“We are reaching out not only to artists who have supported the event in the past but to any new artists who wish to take the opportunity to place their work in front of a very appreciative local audience of up to one thousand people on the night,” she said.

Those interested should email killarneyrotaryclub@gmail.com as soon as possible.
