Corcoran’s Furniture & Carpets recently celebrated 10 fantastic years at their Killarney store at a function in the Killarney Heights Hotel and they used the occasion to pay tribute to some of their longest serving members of staff.

Charlie Santos, DJ O’Driscoll and PJ Sugrue have been loyal employees for a number of years and, on the company’s birthday, their service was acknowledged by company founder Kieran Corcoran. He thanked them for their hard work to date and said that Corcoran’s loyal employees are one of the main reasons behind the company’s continued success.

Kieran was also full of praise for Corcoran’s loyal clientele and said that his team was looking forward to catering to their needs for many years to come.

Kieran founded Corcoran’s Furniture & Carpets in Cahersiveen in 1999 and the business has grown exponentially over the past 29 years. The Killarney store opened in June 2008, boasting a 40,000 sq ft state of the art showroom and the Tralee store, which was originally opened in 2014, is now located in Manor Park. A fourth store was added in Newcastle West in 2015.

The family-run business offers an exceptional collection of dining, bedroom, and living room furnishings, as well as flooring, curtains, blinds, rugs and accessories.

Corcoran’s now have 50 employees and as the company continues to expand and invest in its staff, further growth is expected.

The future looks bright for Corcoran’s and with loyal employees like Charlie, DJ and PJ in their ranks, they’re sure to enjoy continued success. Congratulations to the team at Corcoran’s on 10 great years in Killarney and all the best for the future.

The question of pedestrianisation in the town centre has divided Killarney for years but a survey by the Killarney Advertiser this week shows the town slightly more in favour of it.

A total of 37.14 percent of respondents want the pedestrianisation of Plunkett St to remain as it is – closed to traffic on a permanent basis while 24.76 want it to go back to its pre-pandemic arrangement where the street was only closed to vehicular traffic between 7pm and 7am each night.

An additional 34.29 percent want to see an increase in pedestrianisation in town centre by extending the Main St arrangement that was in place during the summer. In that period the town’s main thoroughfare was closed to traffic, day and night, during the weekend.

Only 20 percent of the respondents want to abolish pedestrianisation altogether, but that is still a significant number ensuring that this debate will linger on for a long time yet.

A local group hosting a life-saving information day tomorrow (Saturday) are to receive huge exposure on national TV after a crew came down to interview them about their campaign.

Members of Killarney Cardiac Response Unit (KCRU) – who are planning a ‘Restart a Heart Day’ to raise awareness about life-saving techniques – invited journalist Paul Byrne and Virgin Media TV crew to town this week.

It’s hoped their campaign will be broadcast tonight (Friday) or tomorrow (Saturday).

The KCRU event takes place tomorrow in ANAM Arts and Cultural Centre between 10.30am and 4pm as part of the European Restart a Heart Day. It’ll include CPR demos, public information, an art display, a video launch w️ith many prizes to be won.

“The crew interviewed Community Responder Helen Duggan who explained the events taking place on Saturday,” Kevin O’Leary from KCRU told the Killarney Advertiser.

“European Restart a Heart Day was founded with the support of the European parliament and takes place on October 16 every year. We’re spreading the message that 20 minutes of your time could make all the difference saving a life.”

In 2021, the focus of the event is on survivors with the hashtag #CPRSavedMyLife.

“With this campaign we want to create awareness that everyone can learn CPR and facilitate BLS courses in schools and public locations.”

He said they hope that Kerry TDs Danny Healy-Rae, Brendan Griffin and Minister for Education Norma Foley will be in attendance throughout the day, and the public are invited to attend.

“Find out how simple actions can save lives. Prizes include a three day First Aid course valued at €300, two First Aid kits, and a voucher for a local business.”
