ALWAYS to be relied on to get the giddy whirl of festive revelry off to a fine start, this year's Evening of Wine & Art is shaping up to be as spectacular as ever. The fun commences at 7.30pm this Thursday in The Malton Hotel and we'd advise you to be there early to enjoy the action.

Killarney Rotary Club president Eduard Schmidt-Zorner and his team have been busy putting the finishing touches to this year's event, while artists and wine suppliers are also keen to ensure you have an evening to remember. “It is always a joyful event where you meet new and old friends, and know you are supporting the local charities and community projects benefiting from the evening,” said Eduard.

Killarney Rotary Club appreciates the support given by the sponsors, Daly’s Supervalu and Killarney Breweries, added the club president. “We also look forward to welcoming back the artists and craft people every year and it is always nice to meet new artists,” said Eduard.

The usual wine and cheese tasting opportunities will appeal to all. Meanwhile the charities and organisations involved will have stands and advertise their projects and sell products, while the raffle is always hotly anticipated. “Killarney Rotary will also provide an information stand for those who want to learn more about Rotary or may be interested in becoming a member,” added Eduard.

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.
