The feel good factor is on as some of Ireland's best chefs club together, bringing an amazing food series to Kerry this November whilst donating valuable funds to St Vincent de Paul.

 

Chad Byrne, an Irish Chef of the Year who has masterminded the latest events, will be bringing some amazing food to Real Burger Killorglin with the help of some of Ireland's and the UK's hottest chefs.

"Each week one chef will take the reins with a Specials Board to create some inspiring, tasty, delicious food," Chad told the Killarney Advertiser.

"First up is Nick Reynolds of famed Caribbean/Jamaican restaurant Lil Portie in Rathmines in Dublin.
"We're delighted to have him on board. He'll create the dish online and we'll recreate it the following day for customers."

Currently Nick is on TV screens as the resident chef on 'Lodging with Lucy' on Virgin Media One.

Chad, who is Head Chef in The Brehon, and a director of Real Burger with Mohammad Anzi, worked with Nick on his Chef Collab project and also the Chef Beat Chef online competition during the first lockdown.

Nick said he is very much looking forward to it.

"I’ve done a few different projects with Chad over the years and they have always been so much fun with the food always being next level. I'm honoured he has asked me to be the first chef to feature. Expect spice, freshness and some jerk seasoning in my dish. I'll be cooking it on the Real Burger's social channels and will be available from Friday for the weekend with a Euro of each dish being sold to be donated to SVDP. I can't wait to bring some Jamaican love to Kerry."

After almost 500 days of closures the sense of relief was evident this week as restaurants, cafés and bars were finally allowed to welcome customers back in.

Some had reopened for outdoor dining previously to help keep their businesses afloat but it was back to normal on Monday.

According to the new rules as set out by Fáilte Ireland and the Government, in order for customers to access indoor service, they must show proof that they are fully vaccinated or have recovered from COVID-19 in the past six months. Those who are not yet vaccinated can only be served outside.

A maximum of six people aged 13 and over are allowed per table and it’s advised that face coverings be worn when not at the table, there is no time limit, customers can only eat or drink at a table and not at the bar or counter, and one person must give their details for contract tracing purposes. Live music and dancing is not allowed.

The Killarney Advertiser spoke to a number of businesses this week and overall the feeling was relief that they can finally get back to normal service but the issue of staffing still remains.

Brian Murphy from Courtney’s Bar said he was feeling nervous.

“I’m feeling nervous as we don’t have enough staff,” he said. “It’s a Monday so hopefully we can cope. Things will settle down and we’ll find a level we are all happy with.”

At the Porterhouse Restaurant Lee O’Callaghan said “It’s great to be back open and have people coming into the restaurant”.

“Hopefully we have a long season after being closed for so long.”

Staff at Reidy’s, Ellen Shannon, Rory Carroll and Jack Sweeney, added that they’re delighted to return to indoor dining.

“Hopefully we get back to normal soon and to brighter days ahead.”

At Jimmy Brien’s Bar in Fair Hill, customers echoed the same sentiments about being finally open.

“We are delighted to be back,” Danjoe Aherne said.

“We appreciate everything Alan Breen has done for us. We’re glad to be back home again!” Charlie Buckingham said.

People of Killarney are being urged to have their say on a new skateboard park before next week’s deadline.

A public consultation on the project has been launched by Kerry County Council.

Cllr Donal Grady, who first put forward the idea of a Killarney skateboard park in 2018, is urging the people of the town to have their say.

It is proposed to build the park on land adjacent to the Killarney Sports and Leisure Centre with help and support from the KDYS.

“In 2017 a group of skateboard enthusiasts approached me, they had no designated safe area to enjoy their sport. Sport is vital for youths, stakeboarding increases metabolism, improves balance and enhances coordination use,” Cllr Grady told the Killarney Advertiser.

“Skateboarding is now an Olympic sport. I commend Kerry County Council, management, engineers and the planning team for getting the project to this stage, it’s now up to the people of Killarney to have their say. It’s vital positive submissions are lodged by Wednesday, August 25,”
