The popular golf day in aid of the Kerry Stars Special Olympic Club will return to Beaufort Golf Club next Saturday after a two-year absence.

The event, which takes place on June 8, is one of the biggest fundraisers for the local Special Olympic Club and comes on the back of one of the most successful seasons for the club.

“We have 95 athletes competing in various sports within the club and we need to be able to pay for travel expenses and team kits through the season,” Tom Tobin, Club Chairman, said. “We don’t get any funding from the Government or Special Olympics Ireland.”

In March this year Gary O’Sullivan from Castleisland won two medal at the Special Olympics World Games in Abu Dhabi.

Teams of three are invited to enter the golf classic by contacting Tom on 087 2338575. Slots are available from late afternoon.

The Dóchas Drama Group will run a series of short plays at the Muckross Schoolhouse from December 5 to 7.

The group’s annual performance has been switched to the Muckross venue as its traditional base – the ballroom in the Killarney Avenue Hotel is being refurbished.

“If you are fed up with the incessant rain and constant bad news. Do you need a break? Are tired of listening to advice about your Christmas cake recipe? There is a perfect solution,” said the group’s Liz Ryan.

“We will present six short plays and some of the questions you may ask yourself are: 

“Why is Jane suddenly so honest?

“What did happen on December 9. Will Tiffany be promoted? Will Mags eventually find love?

“Can lost love be re-kindled? What do grandparents get up to when they’re babysitting?

For answers to these questions and more, come along to Muckross Schoolhouse on December 5, 6 and 7.”
