A new Columbarium wall at Knockeendubh cemetery in Killarney is nearing completion.

The five piece wall, which will be used to store one hundred slots for urns of people who passed away, will be finished by the end of September or early next month.

Contractors are currently on site and are currently working on the centre piece which will include a granite surround and seating once completed.

The Columbarium wall itself, which is already built, will be delivered to the site in five separate units and placed in position by crane in the next week or two, contractors confirmed to the Killarney Advertiser.
Mayor Brendan Cronin has been a long-time advocate of the project.

Earlier this year he sought clarification from Council Chief Executive Moira Murrell on a previous commitment given by the Council that the construction would go ahead despite COVID-19 disrupting Council work programmes.

He is delighted that the project is finally coming to fruition.

“We are in changing times and it is important to have such an amenity in the area,” he told the Killarney Advertiser. “This will be here for future generations. This was promised to us and I am delighted to see it is nearly completed.”

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
