LOOKING to expand your horizons? Killarney Community College is hosting a careers fair on Wednesday next, January 18. The fair, from 5.30pm-8pm, offers a prime opportunity to students to gather information from Irish universities, Institutes of Technology, Post-Leaving Cert (PLC) colleges and employers, Local and National.“This will enable them, with their parents, to make informed choices regarding their College Courses and post school opportunities,” said principal Stella Loughnane.

Staff members from University College Cork, University of Limerick, NUI Galway, Institutes of Technology Tralee, Cork, Limerick and Waterford, Kerry College of Further Education, St. John’s Central College, Killarney Community College, Mallow College and North Kerry College of Further Education are among the education institutes who will be attending.

Liebherr Container Cranes will host a stand focusing on careers and O’Carroll Engineering will be on hand to talk about its apprenticeship programmes.
An Garda Siochána will also present a stand and will be on hand to explain its recruitment process.
Killarney Credit Union and Bank of Ireland will advise on the financial supports they offer to students, sensible savings plans and the value of forward planning.

“The careers fair is open to everybody in the Killarney catchment area, so if you are a Leaving Cert student or parent and are still unsure about CAO choices this fair is an opportunity to come and talk to the experts from the universities and Institutes of Technology and to firm up possible PLC programmes,” added Stella.

“Fifth year is the time to research post-school opportunities, look around, see which college offers what, become familiar with basic minimum entry requirements, specific subject requirements and costings. A trip to the careers Fair will point you in the right direction and support your upcoming college choices. If you are a third-year student you will be expected to choose your subjects for the Leaving Certificate in the next few weeks.”

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.
