Passengers travelling to UK destinations like Luton, Stansted and Manchester will soon be able to enjoy Duty Free Shopping at Kerry Airport.

At a shareholders meeting on Wednesday morning, CEO John Mulhern confirmed that the airport, which released its Annual Report this week, is working towards introducing Duty Free Shopping to UK-bound passengers.

Duty Free Shopping has been made possible by Britain's departure from the EU.

Tax and Duty Free sales to travellers within the EU were abolished in 1999.

While no firm date has been given for the introduction of Duty Free Shopping at Kerry Airport, it is one of many new improvements that have either been already introduced or are in the planning process at the Farranfore-based airport.

“During the forced suppression of travel the Airport took every opportunity to improve its facilities and prepare for both recovery and a healthier future. The focus of improvements were principally on enhancing the passenger experience and to ensure our customers have a final positive memory of their trip to the Kingdom. We have also upgraded our gift shop, which will soon also have a Duty Free section for UK flight destinations, and our traditional Irish Bar in the Departures Area which we are confident will receive a positive reception,” Mr Mulhern told the meeting.

Killarney native Patrick O’Sullivan Greene will launch his second book in the Great Southern Killarney on December 2.

O’Sullivan Greene explains Éamon de Valera’s mission to gain recognition for the newly formed Irish republic in New York in 1919 in his latest book ‘Revolution at the Waldorf: America and the Irish War of Independence’.

Without American recognition and funding the young Irish Government was sure to fail against the might of the British Empire and the book tells the story of how de Valera and Ireland-based Michael Collins – much to the defiance of the British authorities at Dublin Castle – got the new State off the ground.

O’Sullivan grew up in New Street and is now based in Beaufort after a career in finance took him all over the world including Dublin, London, New York and France.

“Killarney is the natural place for me to launch the book,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“There will be an interesting mix of people there.”

O’Sullivan Greene published his first book, ‘Crowdfunding the Revolution: The First Dáil Loan and the Battle for Irish Independence’, in 2020.
