SURVEY: Members of the Kilcummin Looking Good committee are encouraging locals to take part in a survey to help develop their three to five year plan for the village.

By Michelle Crean

Over 3,000 locals in Kilcummin are being asked to have an input into the locality's future by completing a survey to future proof their community.

The Kilcummin Looking Good (KLG) committee have contracted the services of O’Leary and Associates to prepare a three to five year plan for the village focussing on developing their community.

Infrastructure such as roads, footpaths, broadband etc., the aesthetics of the community such as green areas and signage, and most importantly the facilities within the community will all be on the agenda.

"This is an excellent opportunity for residents of Kilcummin to have their say in the planning process as the development of the area will impact you the most," Sinéad Collins, PRO - KLG, told the Killarney Advertiser.

"Due to the restrictions of COVID-19 and public meetings, we are asking people to take part in an online survey. A link to this survey will be available on our Facebook page: ‘Kilcummin Looking Good’ and is extremely user friendly."

However, she added that if locals are not able to avail of the survey via their social media site then contact Kilcummin Rural Development from 9am to 4pm on 064 6643357, Tony 087 6258641 or Sheila 087 7944679, and they will arrange for the survey to be posted to you.

"We will endeavour to send the survey to local organisations and community groups and we encourage as many people as possible to complete the survey as it is important that everyone has the opportunity to contribute to the future development of our parish."

The deadline for its completion is next Wednesday, September 30.

This community plan is kindly being funded by NEWKD CLG under the Leader programme and is also being supported by Kerry County Council, she added.

The coveted KY-1 plate has been allocated to Adams of Tralee for the second year in a row.

The county’s Hyundai dealership secured the coveted plate as a result of the Hyundai Tucson topping the individual model sales charts for 2021.

Available in diesel, petrol and pug-in hybrid, the Tucson offers something for every motorists.

With the switch to full electric not far away, Adams of Tralee’s general manager Marcus O’Shea believes that hybrid offers the perfect transition from fossil fuelled-cars to electric.

“It is a steeping-stone towards full electric,” he told the Killarney Advertiser. “It reduces the range anxiety for those not ready for full electric and it gets people used to new ways – plugging in the car at night at home will become normal and hybrid is the first step.”

The Tucson range has a model to suit all tastes and budgets. As well as being available in petrol, diesel or hybrid, each power variant is also available as in entry-level, mid or high specification formats.

Nicole Coffey of Nicole’s Hair Salon on St Anne’s was inspired to run a fundraiser for a women’s refuge after hearing distressing stories from some of her clients.

On Saturday last she offered a wash and blow-dry to clients and rather than charging them for the her services her customers made a donation to Adapt Women’s Refuge in Tralee.

Nicole was inspired to run the charity day because a lot of her regular clients opened up to her while they were getting their hair done.

The timing of her charity day was poignant as it came just days after Ashling Murphy was murdered while out for a run in her own town of Tullamore.

“People open up while I do their hair, many of them would not know that there is a refuge in Kerry,” she told the Killarney Advertiser. “I have experience with clients who are struggling. I had this idea to create more awareness for Adapt.”

She raised €2,000 for Adapt and the cheque was handed over to the Tralee-based charity on Thursday night this week.

Such was the success of her charity day Nicole worked from 7am to 7pm and as well as cash donations customers also donated vouchers and care packs to the charity.
