A delicious mouthwatering feast created by one local hotel has just been named 'Best Hotel Burger in Ireland'!

On Wednesday, staff at Hotel Killarney were over the moon to learn zia a Zoom ceremony presented by TV personality Brian Dowling, that they had been named one of the best in the country, as fast-food joints, family owned-pubs, hotels, and speciality burger restaurants all sought an accolade.

Head Chef at Hotel Killarney, John Byrne, had his work cut out as he was up against some stiff competition but his skills proved they couldn't be beaten as the winning announcement, part of National Burger Day yesterday (Thursday), was made.

It's Kepak’s fourth annual National Burger Day which encouraged customers to get out and have their say by voting for their favourite burger, while also showing some much-needed support for local food outlets and operators as they emerge from recent pandemic related closures. 

"We at Hotel Killarney are absolutely thrilled to have won 'Best Hotel Burger in Ireland'," Louise Daly, Social Media Coordinator with Hotel Killarney, told the Killarney Advertiser.

"We knew we were up against some stiff competition. It is a credit to our Head Chef John Byrne and his team for the hard work and passion they literally bring to our guest's dining tables every day. We would like to thank all of our staff and guests who got behind us to vote for Hotel Killarney. We look forward to serving many more burgers in the future!"

For every burger purchased and a photo shared online with the hashtag #nationalburgerday, a meal was donated to Simon Communities across the country, with over 14,000 meals donated in 2020 as part of the campaign.

Killarney native Patrick O’Sullivan Greene will launch his second book in the Great Southern Killarney on December 2.

O’Sullivan Greene explains Éamon de Valera’s mission to gain recognition for the newly formed Irish republic in New York in 1919 in his latest book ‘Revolution at the Waldorf: America and the Irish War of Independence’.

Without American recognition and funding the young Irish Government was sure to fail against the might of the British Empire and the book tells the story of how de Valera and Ireland-based Michael Collins – much to the defiance of the British authorities at Dublin Castle – got the new State off the ground.

O’Sullivan grew up in New Street and is now based in Beaufort after a career in finance took him all over the world including Dublin, London, New York and France.

“Killarney is the natural place for me to launch the book,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“There will be an interesting mix of people there.”

O’Sullivan Greene published his first book, ‘Crowdfunding the Revolution: The First Dáil Loan and the Battle for Irish Independence’, in 2020.

One community group have shown that they care deeply for others by crafting handmade blankets for charity.

Using their range of skills and some colourful wool, members of Kilcummin Community Care worked together to make blankets for service users on the Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus.

“Each blanket is assigned as a personal gift to the clients using the Cancer Link Bus and is kept by them,” Kate Fleming, Chairperson of Kilcummin Community Care, said.

The knitting of the squares to make the blankets began at a gathering in the Rose Hotel in 2018. It was a gathering of different volunteer groups.

The Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus were requesting knitted squares to make blankets for the clients who were using their facilities, she explained.

“Kilcummin Community Care were knitting at the time, so it was decided to help out this worthy cause. We received donations of wool from people in the parish and surrounding areas. Kilcummin ICA also got involved in the efforts.”

During the two years of COVID-19, members of both organisations continued to knit and are still knitting to the present day.
