A Spin the Wheel event, which is offering free flights, will take place on Main Street, Killarney, today (Friday), from 3.30pm.

Cork Airport, Ireland’s fastest growing and most punctual airport, will be giving away free flights as part of a ‘Spin the Wheel’ competition in several locations across Munster this summer.

The ‘Spin the Wheel’ events will give the public the opportunity to win return tickets to a range of destinations, such as Budapest, Malta, Verona, Zurich and more. Other prizes up for grabs include luxury hampers from The Loop and vouchers for car parking at Cork Airport, along with free passes for the Aspire airport business lounge.

The competition is to promote Cork Airport’s connectivity to over 50 destinations worldwide, including the eight new routes launched this summer. The events are open to the public and local radio stations will broadcast live from the action.

“We are delighted to bring our ‘Spin the Wheel’ competition to communities across Munster this summer,” Head of Communications at Cork Airport, Kevin Cullinane, said.

“To be in with a chance to play, you must first enter the draw. If you are called, you will have to answer a question correctly about Cork Airport before spinning the wheel. It is definitely worth brushing up on your Cork Airport knowledge in advance by visiting www.corkairport.com.”

“In total, 2.6 million passengers are expected to travel through Cork Airport this year, up 8 percent compared to 2018, its fourth consecutive year of growth. This growth is due to the support of passengers travelling from across Munster choosing to fly from Cork. Cork Airport is very much the airport for the south of Ireland, as it offers great ease of access, flexibility, and connectivity to all of its passengers.”

Fans of the ice will be disappointed to hear that Killarney on Ice will not return for a second year.

Following its huge popularity year on year since returning to Killarney in 2015, the promoters of Killarney on Ice are disappointed to confirm that they are unable to operate again this year.

Rising case numbers, uncertain COVID-19 restrictions, and insurance challenges have been the main drivers behind the decision not to open, according to the company.

As Kerry’s only festive ice rink, the facility has brought much fun and life to the town over the years, attracting thousands of people from all over the county, and indeed the whole country, with many families coming to stay overnight in Killarney and enjoying all that this great town has to offer.

As well as friends and families coming to skate, schools, youth clubs, sports teams and employees of local companies use the group booking discount rate to plan sessions on the ice, and Killarney on Ice would like to thank them all for their continuing loyalty.

“We sincerely hope to be back better and stronger in 2022, and we look forward to welcoming all of our valued customers,” Tim O’Donoghue, the promoter of the rink, told the Killarney Advertiser.

“In the meantime, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.”

The Government has approved 10 new posts for Kerry County Council to assist with the delivery of their social housing targets.

The news was announced today (Friday) as part of the Government’s new housing plan ‘Housing for All’ which commits to strengthening the capacity of Local Authorities to initiate, design, plan, develop and manage housing projects.

The plan acknowledges that this requires the resourcing of housing delivery teams and the posts being announced include a wide range of positions from engineers to quantity surveyors and architects with provision also made for the necessary administrative resources.

“I welcome this announcement by my Cabinet colleague Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage, Darragh O’Brien,” Minister Foley said.

“Housing is a key priority for Government and these new posts are an endorsement of the excellent work carried out by Kerry County Council and a deserved recognition of their continued commitment to providing social housing to all local communities across Kerry.”
