TFI Local Link Kerry is enhancing bus services from Dingle/Daingean Uí Chúis to Killarney from Monday, June 3.

This enhancement is part of the Connecting Ireland Rural Mobility Plan which is a major national public transport initiative developed and funded by the National Transport Authority (NTA) as part of the Transport for Ireland (TFI) Network.
Route 276 will be extended from Castlemaine to Killarney. The enhanced service will operate three daily return services Monday to Sunday and will offer new peak-time and evening services.
The route will enhance connectivity to villages and areas such as Lios Póil, Annascaul, Inch, Ballyarkane, Boolteens, Castlemaine, Milltown, Listry, Faha and Fossa and will provide improved connectivity to regional bus services to facilitate onward travel.
“In partnership with the NTA, we are delighted to extend Route 276 to Killarney. Two iconic towns will be connected by regular public transport bus services which is a significant boost for local residents and tourists,” said TFI Local Link General Manager, Alan O’Connell.
“This enhanced service will not only support tourism but will also boost the local economy by making the villages of Inch, Castlemaine, Milltown, Listry and Faha more accessible for residents, providing a convenient, cost-effective, and eco-friendly way to travel with regular buses seven days a week.”
“Passengers will have the added benefit of enjoying the stunning landscapes on offer in Inch without the stress of driving.
“Public transport is a vital step towards sustainable rural development, reducing our carbon footprint and ensuring improved connectivity for all residents.”

I heard a lot about O’Sullivan’s Cascade and wanted to visit that hidden gem of Kerry. So, shortly before our club competition I went with a friend to Tomies Wood to photograph it. It was a dream come true for me.”

Corcoran’s Furniture and Carpets charity walk through the Gap of Dunloe on Saturday raised almost €12,000 for Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland

There were 37 participants in the event, which included AADI families, dogs, and representatives, as well as fundraisers, supporters, and members of the Corcoran’s team. The stars of the day were the three life-changing super-hero dogs, Buzz, Baron and Hank.

Former Kerry Footballer, James O’ Donoghue, was the ambassador for the event
Those taking part left Ross Castle and were treated to a phenomenal boat ride in the expert hands of Diarmuid ‘Dux’ O’Donoghue of Gap of Dunloe Traditional Boat Tours. The O’Donoghue family entertained the entire group with a range of fascinating stories outlining the history of the lakes of Killarney and Killarney National Park.

The group set out from Lord Brandon’s Cottage and walked the 11K through the iconic Gap of Dunloe, with two AADI families and their dogs taking part in the full walk. This was followed by a well-deserved meal and some rest and relaxation at Kate Kearney’s Cottage. Flemings Taxi’s Killarney brought the group back to Ross Castle, Killarney upon completion of the event.

“On behalf of everybody at Corcoran’s Furniture, we would like to thank everybody who participated in our Gap of Dunloe charity event on behalf of AADI,” said Shane O’ Callaghan, Financial Controller atCorcoran’s.

“Collectively we have raised almost €12,000 for this incredible charity and monies are still coming in. We are extremely grateful to all who supported our walk, and also to James O’ Donoghue, Christina Tagney, the Gap of Dunloe Traditional Boat Tours, the fantastic support of Noel Lucey and Donal McCarthy from the Order Of Malta, Killarney branch, and to Killarney National Park, Kate Kearney’s Cottage and Fleming’s Taxi’s. All funds raised will go toward the expert training and maintenance of the upcoming AADI dogs who will make a dramatic difference to so many children with Autism and their families.”
