DEDICATED followers of fashion are getting in gear for one of the major style events of the year on Tuesday, October 10.

Now in its 28th year, the Fossa Fashion Show will take place in the five-star Europe Hotel & Resort, starting with a cheese and wine reception at 7.30pm.

Always an excellent fundraiser for a variety of organisations in the parish, it is organised by a team including husband and wife James and Claire Houlihan and Tim Kissane, who have been involved in the event since its beginning.

James and Tim came up with the idea when they were youth leaders in Fossa Youth Club. “The first fashion show took place in the old church in Fossa and the funds raised that year were for the youth club,” said James.

Subsequent fashion show benefited the new church, local historical society, community centre, playschool, new school and new community centre.

The best-dressed lady prize will be sponsored by Keane’s Jewellers, Killarney, while a number of raffle prizes and a door prize will also be up for grabs.
The event commences with a cheese and wine reception at 7.30pm and tickets are available from committee members, participating shops and on the door on the night.

Expect to see some of Killarney and Ireland’s iconic fashion and GAA stars on the catwalk.

Tributes have been paid to Peggy O’Callaghan, who was laid to rest on Tuesday of this week.

Peggy played a central role in all activities related to Kilcummin parish. She passed away peacefully at her home on Friday, January 7.

Peggy and her husband Michael founded Kilcummin Scor in 1978 – the music and drama arm of the local GAA club.

“It afforded the opportunity to females to participate in club activities long before ladies’ football was initiated and it brought many people into the club, many of whom remained involved in different capacities over the years,” said a club statement.

“She has left us a wonderful legacy and will be remembered fondly by those lucky enough to have met her.”

Peggy will be sadly missed by her husband Michael, sons Diarmuid and Shane, daughters-in-law Trisha and Áine, grandchildren Dara, Caoimhe, Donnacha, Siún and Éabha, brothers Seánie and Frank, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews, extended family, neighbours and friends.

Plans to link the Monsignor O’Flaherty Road with New St via a new road at Bohereen na Goun have been announced by Killarney Municipal District.

Town engineer John Ahern told Wednesday’s Killarney Municipal District Meeting between elected councillors and senior council executives that Kerry County Council intends to make a compulsory purchase order on lands that will link the two town centre streets.

If plans come to fruition it will be possible for motorists on New St to get to the top of High St, adjacent to the Killarney Advertiser’s town centre office, without travelling through the town centre. The plan was first mooted as far back as 2016.

The announcement caught councillors off guard, it was one of the last topics discussed at the four-hour meeting, but it was broadly welcomed by all.

“This access will change the dynamic of traffic movement in the town forever,” said Cllr Niall Kelleher.

Further details of the surprise project are set to be revealed to elected members over the next four to six weeks.
