Feedback is that Killarney is ‘playing a blinder’ says Chamber

Published

on

Killarney Chamber of Tourism and Commerce has issued a message of thanks and appreciation to business owners, their staff, the people of the town and visitors to the area for adhering to restrictions introduced as part of Government and Health Service Executive guidelines during the course of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Killarney has been extremely busy in recent weeks with thousands of people heeding advice to holiday at home instead of travelling overseas and, as a result, the town has enhanced its reputation as Ireland’s premier visitor destination.

With a few short weeks to go before the schools and colleges are scheduled to reopen, Killarney Chamber of Tourism and Commerce has asked everybody to continue to behave in a responsible manner in terms of implementing COVID-19 restrictions and to make one final push to ensure everybody can finish the holiday season in a safe manner.

“Our thoughts are very much with the businesses and the people of Kildare, Offaly and Laois who have had to reintroduce restrictions,” Chamber President, Paul Sherry, said.

“It just goes to show other locations, like Killarney, how fortunate we are and we would like to thank everybody – people of all ages – for being so responsible and for closely following recommended public health guidelines.”

The Chamber has encouraged everybody to make one final push to ensure everybody’s safety, and Mr Sherry asked all businesses to keep the momentum going and to continue to enforce social distancing, face covering and other public health guidelines as recommended by the authorities.

“The feedback we are getting is that Killarney is playing a blinder and that visitors have been hugely impressed by the standards businesses have introduced and the measures they have taken to keep everybody safe. A few weeks from now, when the holiday season winds down, we will all be doing our best to adjust to what is being described as a new normal and, hopefully, we can continue to reflect on a job well done in ensuring everybody was kept as safe as possible when they were in our company.”

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
