THERE were celebrations in honour of Clodagh Teahan of The Europe Hotel & Resort this week after she won the Young Chef of the Year Ireland prize at the YesChef Awards 2017.

Clodagh started working at the five-star Europe Hotel in 2014 as a commis student from IT Tralee as part of her Higher Education in Culinary Arts course from which she graduated in 2016. She now works in every section of the kitchen with passion and an exemplary attitude.

Clodagh said: “Growing up, I was lucky enough to be brought up in a family that lives and breathes food. At a young age, this is where I believe my passion for food stemmed from. As Julia Child once said, ‘Cooking is like love, it should be entered into with complete abandonment or none at all.’ With this in mind I hope that through your meal experience my cooking will showcase this.”

Europe Hotel executive chef Alex Nahke said: “Clodagh has worked tirelessly through busy times within the hotel in every aspect of our business; we are glad and delighted to have young chefs as passionate as Clodagh within our team.”

It is just over a week since new restrictions were announced by the Government in an another effort to curb the spread of COVID-19.

In our latest online poll we asked our readers if they had reduced their social contacts over the course of the last week.

An overwhelming 62.90% said they had reduced their level of contacts with people.

Interestingly, 37.10% of people had made no change to their lifestyle, but they could have been extra cautious already.

A tiny minority – just 1.61% – said they increased their social contacts over the last week.

Local students went to great efforts on Friday last to highlight a very important message about inclusion.

Staff and students in Killarney Community College came together for ‘Stand Up Awareness Week’ as part of a national campaign where second-level schools take a stand against homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying.

All staff wore a rainbow colour and students wore rainbow coloured accessories to show their support for the campaign as Killarney Community College is a diverse, inclusive, accepting, and welcoming safe space for everyone.

The majority of students made a particularly great effort in terms of wearing rainbow coloured accessories were awarded house points.

During the week, the LGBTI+ flag was hanging proudly in the school canteen. Transition Years decorated the General Purpose area with informative posters, and in SPHE classes, students learned about LGBTI+ terminology and history.

“It’s important that school is a safe and inclusive place for anyone attending regardless of their race, sex, religion or sexuality,” Principal, Stella Loughnane, said.

“I’m delighted that our school community marked the occasion and brought great colour while highlighting a very important message. One of the key words of our mission statement is inclusion making this awareness day a very apt one.”
