EXCITEMENT is building in anticipation of the first-ever Give it a Go event in Killarney. Hidden Hearing has announced it would sponsor the event, which takes place in June. Organised by Active Retirement Ireland and The Gleneagle Hotel, Give it a Go takes place from June 13 to 17. It celebrates ageing and the freedom and opportunities retirement can offer.
Participants will have the chance to try out a huge range of activities including motorcycling, surfing, fishing, yoga and golf. And after a lengthy day of action and adventure, there will be live entertainment every evening, including performances by Brendan Shine, Red Hurley, The Ronan Collins Showband Show and HIYA Entertainment. Give it a Go is about experiencing new things, finding new hobbies and interests, meeting up with friends old and new, laughing, dancing and have fun!
“We’re delighted to sponsor the first ever Give It A Go event in Killarney this summer,” said Dolores Madden, marketing director, Hidden Hearing.
“We encourage everyone to get out and ‘Give It A Go’, no matter what. Hearing loss can affect every aspect of a person’s life, what things aren't you doing, enjoying or experiencing because a person can't hear to their full potential. Give It A Go celebrates life, as does Hidden Hearing, and that’s why we are proud to sponsor such a celebration.”
Hidden Hearing has over 25 years of experience helping people with hearing loss in Ireland. With over 75 stores nationwide including Scott Street Killarney, Tralee and Kenmare, it screens over 40,000 people annually. Hidden Hearing offer free, no obligation hearing tests at all of their clinics.

Spa GAA club has signed up to participate in the Ireland Lights Up winter walking initiative.

The lights will be on every Wednesday night between 7pm and 8pm for the next few weeks at the club’s new walking track. This week marked the second week of night walking but the club also held a candle-light vigil in memory of Ashling Murphy, the Offaly school-teacher who was murdered while out for a walk two weeks ago.

“Participants can follow the walking track that offers a safe off-road path and this activity is open to everyone in the community. If anyone would be available to help with registration or stewarding any night, all help is greatly appreciated,” said club PRO Deirdre O’Sullivan-Darcy.

Any volunteers that can help any evening or any questions please contact Margaret Doyle on 0879181970.

Killarney Municipal District is to appoint the services of a tree specialist to exam the condition of trees in the wider district.

The move follows last December’s Storm Barra. during which several tress were toppled. 
One motorist had a lucky escape when a tree fell on their car during the storm. Another fallen tree blocked access to the Moll’s Gap road near Muckross.
Both Cllrs John O’Donoghue and Donal Grady raised the issue at a recent Killarney Municipal District meeting.
“In order to mitigate against such events, the Killarney MD Office are in the process of preparing tender documents to procure assessment of specific trees that are in the charge of Kerry County Council.” A council official told the meeting.
“This will allow the MD to make determinations on individual trees in its charge. Individual property owners are responsible for the welfare and maintenance of trees within and along the boundary of their property lines.”
