‘Help Rose Bloom’ is the chosen charity for the 11th Ballymac Classic Car and Honda 50 run.

Based at O’Riada’s Bar, Ballymac, the event will take place this Sunday (August 8) and is organised by the Kingdom Vintage Veteran and Classic Car Club.

Ahead of the run, a static ‘Cars ‘n Coffee’ event will be held the grounds of the Ballymac bar between 10am and 12 noon.

'Help Rose Bloom' has been set up by the O’Flaherty family from Ballymac.

Their daughter Rose was diagnosed with Type 1 Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA1), a severe genetic condition that weakens muscles and causes problems with movement – when she was just nine-months-old.
SMA1 children typically have a life expectancy of just two years, but Rose has been defying medical odds ever since her diagnosis.

“The local community has been raising funds to help her family gain access to vital medicines,” said KVCCC’s George Glover, who is one of the main organisers.

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.
