A group of traders on the top of High Street are calling on local businesses to follow their example and deck the town in green and gold ahead of tomorrow's big match.

Kerry face Tyrone in the All-Ireland Football Semi-Final at 3.30pm afternoon in Croke Park.

Johnny Maguire of Bricín Restaurant, was the first to place green and gold bunting on High Street. He linked his decorations in with O’Sullivan’s Cycles and Jack C's Bar across the street.

A highlight of Bricín’s display is a painting of Johnny’s uncle, Jackie Wade, who was a mascot for Kerry during the 1914 All-Ireland Football final.

“It is very disappointing that so few have shown their support. It is up to each individual business and hope others follow us,” Johnny told the Killarney Advertiser.

“Getting past Tyrone in Croke Park is never easy. This could be the last time to show support but people seem to be blasse about the semi-final.”

Publican John C O’Shea added: “I hope they will be up for over a month.”

Killarney Chamber of Tourism and Commerce also erected green and gold bunting on the streets of the town.

President, Niall Kelleher, and Chamber volunteers were out and about at 6am this morning (Friday) to decorate the town before traffic got heavy.

"The Chamber wishes Peter Keane and the Kerry team every success in their bid to lead the county back into another All-Ireland Senior Football Championship final," Niall Kelleher said.

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.
