This Sunday (October 28), be afraid and very afraid as a wide array of ghouls, goblins, ghosts, witches, wacky wonders and weirdos descend in strange spooky swarms upon the Killarney Outlet Centre. Is it a zombie takeover? No, it’s the annual Halloween Fancy Dress Parade with fantastic prizes and free fun activities for the whole family!

The lucky winners of the Fancy Dress Parade will receive a Boys Flicker A3 Air Scooter for the Best Dressed Boy and a Girls Flicker A3 Air Scooter for the Best Dressed Girl, both sponsored by World of Wonder. The Best Dressed Family in association with Select Hotels of Ireland will win a fabulous family break in The Twin Trees Hotel, Co. Mayo. (2 nights B&B and 1 Dinner for 2 Adults & 2 Kids under 12 sponsored by Select Hotels and The Twin Trees Hotel).

The Best Dressed Adult will collect a Family Pass for Killarney Ghost Tours.

All entrants are asked to please donate €1 in support of Killarney Rotary Club’s campaign to End Polio Now. Our panel of judges are looking forward to seeing some more fantastic and unusual costumes this year.

Every child will be given a goodie bag, and there’s even a treat in store for parents, as everyone who comes along to the party will receive a voucher from Select Hotels of Ireland offering a free second night’s stay when you book one night away at any Select Hotel nationwide.

We will have bouncy castles with A Time to Party, free Halloween face painting to put the finishing touch to your outfit or get creative at the free Halloween recycled arts and crafts workshops. There will be free children’s entertainment with spooky storytelling sessions and Punch and Judy puppet shows in the Yurt from 2-4pm. Killarney Candle Makers and Clay Fun will also be on hand to help you create a personalised candle or clay design – a small materials charge applies.

Ireland’s premier Outlet Centre hosts a bespoke Arts, Crafts and Food Fair on the ground floor on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 of October. Support local artists, craft workers and food producers and check out the exquisite range of unique handcrafted goods on offer, with something to suit all tastes and pockets.

Paul Sherry, General Manager at Killarney Outlet Centre can’t wait for the mayhem and madness to kick off: “Halloween is a great time for the kids to be kids and I know families are really looking forward to our Fancy Dress Party and all the free fun activities, to which all are welcome!”

The question of pedestrianisation in the town centre has divided Killarney for years but a survey by the Killarney Advertiser this week shows the town slightly more in favour of it.

A total of 37.14 percent of respondents want the pedestrianisation of Plunkett St to remain as it is – closed to traffic on a permanent basis while 24.76 want it to go back to its pre-pandemic arrangement where the street was only closed to vehicular traffic between 7pm and 7am each night.

An additional 34.29 percent want to see an increase in pedestrianisation in town centre by extending the Main St arrangement that was in place during the summer. In that period the town’s main thoroughfare was closed to traffic, day and night, during the weekend.

Only 20 percent of the respondents want to abolish pedestrianisation altogether, but that is still a significant number ensuring that this debate will linger on for a long time yet.

A local group hosting a life-saving information day tomorrow (Saturday) are to receive huge exposure on national TV after a crew came down to interview them about their campaign.

Members of Killarney Cardiac Response Unit (KCRU) – who are planning a ‘Restart a Heart Day’ to raise awareness about life-saving techniques – invited journalist Paul Byrne and Virgin Media TV crew to town this week.

It’s hoped their campaign will be broadcast tonight (Friday) or tomorrow (Saturday).

The KCRU event takes place tomorrow in ANAM Arts and Cultural Centre between 10.30am and 4pm as part of the European Restart a Heart Day. It’ll include CPR demos, public information, an art display, a video launch w️ith many prizes to be won.

“The crew interviewed Community Responder Helen Duggan who explained the events taking place on Saturday,” Kevin O’Leary from KCRU told the Killarney Advertiser.

“European Restart a Heart Day was founded with the support of the European parliament and takes place on October 16 every year. We’re spreading the message that 20 minutes of your time could make all the difference saving a life.”

In 2021, the focus of the event is on survivors with the hashtag #CPRSavedMyLife.

“With this campaign we want to create awareness that everyone can learn CPR and facilitate BLS courses in schools and public locations.”

He said they hope that Kerry TDs Danny Healy-Rae, Brendan Griffin and Minister for Education Norma Foley will be in attendance throughout the day, and the public are invited to attend.

“Find out how simple actions can save lives. Prizes include a three day First Aid course valued at €300, two First Aid kits, and a voucher for a local business.”
