Published

on

Mairead Courtney from Beaufort got a great surprise when she received a call from Killarney Credit Union to find out she had won a brand new Toyota Yaris in the Killarney Credit Union Members' Draw.

Mairead picked up the keys of her new car from Karena McCarthy, Marketing Officer, at a prize giving ceremony at the credit union on Thursday, July 9 at the credit union headquarters.

“We currently have just over 2,300 members in the draw which is held twice a year," Karena said.

"Our prizes include a new car and cash ranging from €250 to €5,000 cash. Our next draw will take place in January 2021.”

Members can apply for the Members Draw at any of the branches or apply online on www.killarneycu.ie. €12 will be taken from the members' account twice a year as an entry fee for the members draw.

The 13 cash prize winners in no particular order were: Paul McCarthy, Margaret Kelliher, Karina Mulchinock, Dermot Tuohy, Denise McSweeney, Tim Moriarty, Delores O'Callaghan, Mary O'Sullivan, Josephine Cronin, Anthony McGuiness, Julie Payne, Miriam O'Sullivan, Michael O'Keeffe.

The draw was adjudicated by Garda Twiss and Griffin from Killarney Garda Station and KCU Risk and Compliance Manager Shane Foley in the credit union offices.

“The draw is limited to members of Killarney Credit Union and anyone over the age of 18 can apply to join, so for €2 a month, you can be entered into the draw. You are over six thousand times more likely to win the car than win the national lotto jackpot for just €2 per month! We would encourage members to sign up, if they haven’t already, as the saying goes,"if you’re not in, you can’t win",” she concluded.

Well-known Dalton’s Avenue woman Eileen Switzer has been named as the Honorary President of Killarney Valley Athletic Club in recognition of her work as a volunteer.

The club held its annual awards night on Friday night last.

As well as presenting awards to club members in recognition of their achievements at home and abroad they decided to honour Mrs Switzer for her “lifetime of volunteering to the community, to sport, to youth and for championing diversity and inclusion”.

“Eileen has been an advocate, a coach and an administrator in the sport of athletics for over 60 years in the town of Killarney, Kerry and beyond,” said club chair Jerry Griffin.

Eileen and her husband Frank have dedicated their lives to the community games and athletics in the greater Killarney area.

“I enjoy, but I don’t like, all the limelight,” she told the Killarney Advertiser.

“I like to watch newcomers as they come up through the ranks, many of the Community Games people of the past are now running the committee.”

In a life time dedicated to volunteerism in Killarney Eileen has helped sports like golf, pitch and putt and badminton grow.  She was also heavily involved in the local Irish dancing scene and remains a great supporter of Kerry Parents and Friends.
