The first of three free concerts at ANAM Killarney Arts and Cultural Centre will take place tonight (Tuesday) at 7.30pm.

Well-known musician Tim O’Shea will bring Afro Trad Ireland to the centre.

It is one of three concerts there thanks to funding through Phase Four of the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media’s Local Live Performance Programming Scheme.

The aim of the scheme is to support employment opportunities for professional performers and technicians and to help underpin the recovery of the commercial live performance sector.

“Kerry County Council thanks Minister Catherine Martin and the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media for their continued support. Over the previous three instalments of the Local Live Performance Programming Scheme, Kerry County Council has had the opportunity to support more than 300 Kerry-based professional artists, musicians, crew and other staff involved in live performances and we are grateful to be able to support many more with this fourth instalment,” said Mayor of Kerry, Cllr John Francis-Flynn.

Two further free concerts will also take place at ANAM in the coming weeks – Cathal Flaherty and Lorraine Nash, both talented musicians from Killarney.

Cathal Flaherty has played all over Ireland and across Europe in the last few years and has supported many well-known artists including Bressie, Delerentos, Jack L, Paddy Casey, The Riptide Movement, Mundy, Heathers and many more.

Lorraine Nash is a talented multi-instrumentalist, often using a variety of instruments including piano, guitar, harp, flute and violin in her creative process to embody her song-writing with different influences and ambience.

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.
