AFTER dozens of people applied for the first jarvey licence to be advertised in Killarney in years, Eric Lynch has taken the reins as the successful applicant.

Eric, from Ardshanavooley Estate, Killarney, was the lucky winner drawn from 66 applications, and is pictured here with his grandfather Councillor Donal Grady.

This was the first hackney horse and carriage licence to have been publicly advertised in generations and such was the level of interest that the successful applicant was drawn by lot.

Some 66 applications were deemed “valid” and the opportunity to drive a horse and carriage for hire to Ross Castle and down by Lough Léin for an annual licence fee of €65 was offered to the first name drawn.

The single licence is one of just 37 Killarney town jarvey licences.

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.
