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.

A popular primary school in the Killarney area is launching a new fundraising initiative this week to support and improve the education experience of the children it serves.

The Coolick National School Lotto is now live; offering a weekly prize, a weekly jackpot and a range of valuable spot prizes at launch.

Coolick NS first opened its doors in 1870 making it one of the county’s oldest primary schools. The school and pre-school is home to over 130 children from the locality. This is an increase of 20% over the past 5 years taking enrolment to an all-time high.

Coolick NS School Lotto Chairperson and parent, Pádraig Leane says properly resourcing primary school services is crucial:

“The cost of providing education is rising and the school grants provided by the department, although valuable, only do so much. We want to overcome this challenge with our school lotto. The school has a range of immediate needs but also longer-term goals to expand our facilities, add more sports equipment, wellness programmes, student support programmes and increase extra-curricular trips,” he said.

First on the list is a new set of school jerseys, gymnastics mats, replacement of end-of-lfe iPads and further expansion of their Tír na nÓg play area for the younger pupils.
Coolick National School Principal Gearoid O’Sullivan remains focused on providing the best for the children of Coolick.

“As a school we are committed to providing the best equipment, teaching and learning resources, outdoor spaces and a school interior that helps nurture each child. This school lotto will help us with our commitment to provide the very best for the school and especially for the pupils in our care,” said the principal.

The staff and students of Coolick National School are appealing to families, friends, past pupils, members of the local community, stakeholders and supporters to get behind the weekly school lotto. It is hoped that the option of 1 line for €2.50, 2 lines for €4 or 3 lines for €5 will encourage everybody to contribute. A lotto draw will take place each week with a maximum jackpot of €2,000 to be won.

Signing up is easy; through the school’s website https://www.ourfundraiser.ie/org/coolickns
