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."

The Kerry County GAA Board said it would operate “an open door policy” for any plans to build a GAA museum in the county.

There have been talks at a political level to build such a museum in Kerry with political rivals in Killarney and Tralee both pushing for it to be built in their home town.

Before he retired from politics in April, Michael Gleeson was campaigning to build a GAA and cultural museum on the grounds of Fitzgerald Stadium.

His campaign goes back several years before the recession set in, with a €0.5 million bridging loan secured from Croke Park along with funding from Fáilte Ireland. That funding was lost with the onset of the recession before 2010.

Tim Murphy, the outgoing chairman of the Kerry County Board, has confirmed to the Killarney Advertiser that no approaches have been made to the County Board at executive level during his five year stint at the helm.

However, he said the Board would be open to such approaches provided there is sound financial planning behind the project in place.

“The first and most important aspect is the capital funding and my understanding is there needs to be Fáilte Ireland funding in place first,” he told the Killarney Advertiser. “If it gets up and running, there needs to be very clear talks with all stakeholders so everyone knows each others expectations. A museum attracts footfall, but it costs a lot of money to run. We would offer an open door policy to all proposals but funding, first from a capital point of view and then from an operational point of view, will need to be in place.”

School pupils are fast becoming the next generation of environmentalists thanks to a brand new litter-picking campaign.

Happy to help save the planet one bit of litter at a time are the children from Scoil Bhríde, Loreto NS, who are currently partaking in the Picker Pal Programme.

It’s all about taking on a litter-picking adventure in their local area as well as learning songs, reading storybooks, filling in activity books while witnessing that their real-world actions are making a positive difference and inspiring others to join the movement.

Picker Pals is a unique primary school programme that gives children the tools and motivation to become the next generation of environmentalists, teacher Claire O’Meara explained.

“The Picker Pal Programme is a fantastic initiative and will go a long way to raise awareness of the impact litter has on our environment,” she told the Killarney Advertiser.

Real litter-picking is motivated by a Picker Pack made from upcycled dinghy sails and containing adult and child litter-picking tools, gloves, hi-vis vests and safety information.

“This pack is then taken home by a different pupil every week. That child takes their adult on a litter-picking adventure. The children then tell the story of their litter-picking adventures through art and writing. Raising awareness is an essential part of the solution to littering. Picker Pals gives young people the tools and positive motivation to steward their local environment and make the world a better place.”

The programme, run by environmental NGO VOICE Ireland, is funded by the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications and various local authorities across Ireland.

Now in its third year of operation, over one thousand schools all across Ireland will be taking part in the Picker Pals programme this year. In Kerry, 29 schools are taking part, and Scoil Bhríde, Loreto is delighted to be included, she added.
