By Michelle Crean

Killarney town has received €40,000 through the Town & Village Renewal Scheme. The funding, welcomed by Cllr Michael Gleeson, has been approved to 'Develop the Killarney town story through ‘place making’ and making Killarney an inviting place to live'.

Minister Heather Humphries TD, Minister for Rural and Community Development, announced the towns and villages that were successful under the 2020 Town & Village Renewal Scheme - Accelerated Measure Round 3 and the Accelerated Measure Round 3 – Large Towns.

In total Kerry received €114,350.00 with Tralee receiving €40,000 for 'Shopfront enhancement scheme', Sneem €39,600 for 'Improved access to riverside recreation area', Ballybunion/Ballyheigue €24,750 for the 'Installation of bicycle infrastructure across both towns', Ardfert received €25,000 for 'Community Recreational spaces' while €25,000 was allocated to Inch for 'Picnic recreational area at Inch Beach'.

"At this difficult time in the country it is very gratifying to get €40,000 from the Minister to enhance Killarney and make an even better place in which to live," Cllr Michael Gleeson told the Killarney Advertiser.

"It would be most welcome if some could be used to provide further bicycle parking stands as these are a vital part of promoting Killarney as a cycling destination for all, locals and visitors. There will inevitably be greater emphasis on promoting holidaying at home from now on and Killarney must be ready to offer the very best facilities to people. Having cycle parking locations allows Killarney look for the money to develop new and safe cycle lanes in and around the town."

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!”
