Organisers of the Irish National Sheepdog Trials have thanked management and staff at The Europe Hotel and Resort ahead of next week’s event.

Over 150 of Ireland’s top dog handlers will compete on the three-day event - the first time the national championships have been held in Killarney - which gets underway next Thursday, August 5.

The hotel is proud to play its part by making 52 acres of its extensive and superb quality farmland available for this popular event at its own farmland situated at Killalee in Fossa.

“The Europe Hotel and Resort have granted use of their 52 acre field outside Killarney to host the event. The sheep for the event will be from the farm of Jim Dennehy, Gap of Dunloe Road, and Con Healy, Millstreet, Co. Cork,” said local committee chairman Tom O’Sullivan. “The local committee are very grateful to all the volunteers and indeed the local businesses who have sponsored the event in any way.”

Adrian Stehr, Managing Director of the Killarney Hotels Collection, which includes The Europe Hotel and Resort, The Dunloe Hotel and Gardens, and Ard na Sidhe Country House, will be on hand to present the trophies to the successful competitors at the end of the trials.

“We are delighted to be able to host and welcome this prestigious event on to our land where sheepdog handlers and their trained sheepdogs will have an opportunity to showcase their first class skills in a competitive environment,” he said.

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.
