Killarney Macra are going the extra mile this Christmas and are appealing to the public for support. The local group have paired up with St Columbanus Nursing Home as they want to bring a little extra joy to residents there!

 

They are seeking a number of items to bring a smile to the residents, explained Siobhan Deering, PRO with Killarney Macra na Feirme.

"We aim to give every resident something a little extra this Christmas," she said. "Donations of any of the following would be greatly appreciated: mindfulness colouring books, colour Twistables, word search/crossword, books, socks, nail varnish, hand cream, manicure sets, shower gel, scratch cards, art supplies, and wool for knitting. Both ladies and men's gifts are needed. There is no need to wrap the items, but if you would like to put them in a gift bag that would be brilliant."

The last day for the collection of items will be next Tuesday, December 15, she added.

"Please contact our Facebook page: Killarney Macra Na Feirme and we can arrange a drop off time and location that suits you."

The coveted KY-1 plate has been allocated to Adams of Tralee for the second year in a row.

The county’s Hyundai dealership secured the coveted plate as a result of the Hyundai Tucson topping the individual model sales charts for 2021.

Available in diesel, petrol and pug-in hybrid, the Tucson offers something for every motorists.

With the switch to full electric not far away, Adams of Tralee’s general manager Marcus O’Shea believes that hybrid offers the perfect transition from fossil fuelled-cars to electric.

“It is a steeping-stone towards full electric,” he told the Killarney Advertiser. “It reduces the range anxiety for those not ready for full electric and it gets people used to new ways – plugging in the car at night at home will become normal and hybrid is the first step.”

The Tucson range has a model to suit all tastes and budgets. As well as being available in petrol, diesel or hybrid, each power variant is also available as in entry-level, mid or high specification formats.

Nicole Coffey of Nicole’s Hair Salon on St Anne’s was inspired to run a fundraiser for a women’s refuge after hearing distressing stories from some of her clients.

On Saturday last she offered a wash and blow-dry to clients and rather than charging them for the her services her customers made a donation to Adapt Women’s Refuge in Tralee.

Nicole was inspired to run the charity day because a lot of her regular clients opened up to her while they were getting their hair done.

The timing of her charity day was poignant as it came just days after Ashling Murphy was murdered while out for a run in her own town of Tullamore.

“People open up while I do their hair, many of them would not know that there is a refuge in Kerry,” she told the Killarney Advertiser. “I have experience with clients who are struggling. I had this idea to create more awareness for Adapt.”

She raised €2,000 for Adapt and the cheque was handed over to the Tralee-based charity on Thursday night this week.

Such was the success of her charity day Nicole worked from 7am to 7pm and as well as cash donations customers also donated vouchers and care packs to the charity.
