THERE were celebrations on the double at Straight Blast Gym in Killarney as one of its members, Mariusz Waroch, returned from a prestigious international jiu jitsu contest with two gold medals.
Mariusz competed in the Munich Open Jiu Jitsu Championships during the weekend of February 20 and over two days took on some of the best jiu jitsu practitioners in Europe, winning the coveted top prize in both the gi and no gi categories.
Mariusz has been training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu with SBG Killarney for a number of years now and already holds many Irish national titles in the sport. He is coached by PJ Lucey, who is a purple belt in the sport under John Kavanagh of Straight Blast Gym Dublin. “Preparation was the key to his success and Mariusz would like to thank all his teammates who helped him prepare. A special mention also goes to Jimmy and Donal of Galvin Physiotherapy Clinic for making sure he was injury free, to Navé Yoga and also Paula Galezowska of Black Belt Nutrition for looking after his diet,” said a spokesman for SBG Killarney.
SBG Killarney runs Jiu Jitsu classes four nights a week; for further information contact the gym via its Facebook page or call 086-8867867.

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.
