Killarney’s Christmas lights will have several new features this year - but the exact style is remaining a closely guarded secret until the official switching on ceremony on Saturday night.

Electrician Diarmuid Cronin has been a familiar sight on the town's streets over the last few weeks as he and his team put the finishing touches to this year’s display.

The official ‘Switching on Ceremony’ will take place with Mayor Marie Moloney tasked with the all important job.

The first of several planned ‘Christmas in Killarney’ parades will also take place on Saturday night.

“It is a great honour for me to be bringing such joy and festivities to Killarney,” Diarmuid told the Killarney Advertiser. “There are a few new elements but you will have to wait until Saturday to see them. I hope the people of Killarney will enjoy them – especially the kids – and that we bring some light and colour after a difficult year. I would also like to thank motorists for their patience in recent weeks as we blocked streets to get the decorations and lights up in time. I would also like thank Eileen O’Donoghue and Noel O’Leary of the Municipal District Council who have been a great support in this.”

The pupils and staff of Two Mile Community National School were delighted to welcome Mr Norio Maruyama,  the Japanese Ambassador to Ireland on Tuesday.

The Ambassador was at the school to promote the teaching of the Japanese language and culture through the ‘Say Yes to Languages’ programme.

“The pupils in Two Mile were very interested to listen to stories about Japan and to learn about the links between our two countries,” said school principal Catherine Barry.
“As a multi-denominational school, we are very open to different languages and cultures and we look forward to working with the Japanese embassy from next September.”
Two Mile Community National School is the only multi-denominational school in the Killarney school district.
