Fitzgerald Stadium is looking for safety stewards to fill the voluntary numbers up.

As Kerry continues to battle it out on pitch, volunteers are sought after, to be a part of the steward’s team.

The Munster Council is willing to arrange a course for stewards. 23 have currently completed the course and there was even 10 of them on duty at the recent Kerry and Meath match.

The Munster Council supply around 50 stewards and Fitzgerald Stadium has to supply another 50 stewards.

“Kerry will have to keep winning but we’re always looking for people,” John Lenihan, Supervisor for Community Employment Scheme and Event Controller for games, told the Killarney Advertiser.

“We never have a problem and are very experienced. Some of us have 20 to 30 years of experience. We had four games played recently while other places had to cancel their games. The upkeep of the pitch is a credit to our contractor and community employment workers. We’re proud of it,” he added.

It is just over a week since new restrictions were announced by the Government in an another effort to curb the spread of COVID-19.

In our latest online poll we asked our readers if they had reduced their social contacts over the course of the last week.

An overwhelming 62.90% said they had reduced their level of contacts with people.

Interestingly, 37.10% of people had made no change to their lifestyle, but they could have been extra cautious already.

A tiny minority – just 1.61% – said they increased their social contacts over the last week.

Local students went to great efforts on Friday last to highlight a very important message about inclusion.

Staff and students in Killarney Community College came together for ‘Stand Up Awareness Week’ as part of a national campaign where second-level schools take a stand against homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying.

All staff wore a rainbow colour and students wore rainbow coloured accessories to show their support for the campaign as Killarney Community College is a diverse, inclusive, accepting, and welcoming safe space for everyone.

The majority of students made a particularly great effort in terms of wearing rainbow coloured accessories were awarded house points.

During the week, the LGBTI+ flag was hanging proudly in the school canteen. Transition Years decorated the General Purpose area with informative posters, and in SPHE classes, students learned about LGBTI+ terminology and history.

“It’s important that school is a safe and inclusive place for anyone attending regardless of their race, sex, religion or sexuality,” Principal, Stella Loughnane, said.

“I’m delighted that our school community marked the occasion and brought great colour while highlighting a very important message. One of the key words of our mission statement is inclusion making this awareness day a very apt one.”
