BREWING up support for a good cause proved extremely enjoyable on Saturday as Killarney Rotary Club hosted its eighth annual Afternoon Tea at The Malton. As always, the fundraiser was sold-out event well in advance and it was easy to see why. Ladies – and a few gents – mingled in the elegant hotel foyer during a champagne reception, which was followed by a mouth-watering afternoon tea in the Garden Restaurant.

Talented young Kilcummin singer Lily Foley held the audience spellbound throughout the afternoon with showstopping renditions of such classic songs as Diamonds are Forever and Hallelujah and the event had Killian Foley as DJ.

During the catwalk show, which was co-ordinated by award-winning fashion designer Clodagh Irwin Owens, Clodagh showcased her latest collection, while models also displayed outfits from Kerry Woollen Mills, Lyne’s of High Street and Paco at Killarney Outlet Centre.

Must-have accessories that featured in the glamorous fashion extravaganza included jewellery by Brian de Staic Jewellers and elegant headpieces by Mary Kelliher Millinery and Clodagh Irwin Owens.

Breda Dwyer of St Vincent De Paul told the gathering how the funds raised by the afternoon tea would make a difference to the lives of people in need in the community.

Killarney Rotary Club President Angela O’Connor thanked the businesses who supported the event, ensuring that all the funds raised go directly to The St Vincent De Paul.

Ciara Irwin Foley, former Killarney Rotary Club president and organiser of the event, thanked all those who bought tickets at the event on the day.

The raffle featured a number of exciting prizes, including first prize, an original painting by Carmel T Madigan, valued at over €450.

Kerry Recreation and Sports Partnership are calling on you, to get out and #BeActive as part of European Week of Sport 2021, which runs from September 23 to 30.

Sport Ireland, the national coordinating body for European Week of Sport in Ireland hope that this year’s event will inspire even more people than previous years and has funded multiple flagship as well as local events run by the Network of Local Sports Partnerships, including this ‘Family Street Orienteering Kerry’ event.

“This free event looks to offer everyone an opportunity the get out and be active and maybe try something new,” Gearóid O Doherty, the Coordinator of Kerry Recreation and Sports Partnership said. 

“Urban Orienteering is an activity that you can do on your own or with your family and friends. You get to challenge yourself a little and still go at a pace that suits you – and what a beautiful location to do it all in, Killarney town!

“With many people possibly new to the Kerry region, be that through work, college or otherwise, this is an ideal way to get involved in the community and explore the streets and lanes of Killarney in a fun and active way.”

The Kerry Orienteers Club have designed the courses for this event and are looking forward to the excitement of it all and helping those new to the sport to continue taking part in the months and years that follow.

“We know that, for a lot of people, this will be their first time trying orienteering, but they can rest assured, as we will be there to talk them through it and help them out if needed,” Brendan O’Brien from Kerry Orienteers said.

“If it is something they want to try again, we can signpost them to other events, both locally here in Kerry and indeed nationally. Orienteering is a fantastic sport that allows you to build your skills and confidence, with all events having a variety of routes to cater for all levels.”

To cater for physical distancing and government guidelines, there are several staggered start times for participants to choose from, beginning at 6pm and the last group heading off at 7.30pm. With free t-shirts for all who sign up and additional workshops onsite, from the likes of Leave No Trace Ireland, it is sure to be a fun and vibrant evening, all stemming from the start point at ANAM – Killarney’s Arts and Culture Centre.

Places are limited for this event. Free online registration is available and those looking to attend are encouraged to book their place early to avoid disappointment.
