THE competition is heating up for Kerry’s favourite carvery venues. The Great Carvery of the Year competition has reached one of its most exciting and anticipated points with the reveal of this year’s shortlist of Ireland’s top carvery venues. One hotel and one pub from Kerry are in the running to be named as Munster’s winners as well as the overall titles of Great Carvery Pub of the Year and Great Carvery Hotel of the Year.

Hoping to bring the winning titles home to Kerry this year are The Heights Hotel in Killarney, the Great Carvery Hotel of the Year 2016, and Kirby’s Brogue Inn of Tralee.

Munster’s final three hotels and three pubs will all have a chance at becoming one of its provincial winners as will as the chance to be named as Ireland’s Great Carvery Pub or Great Carvery Hotel of the Year for 2017.

Now in its eighth year, the nationwide Great Carvery of the Year competition is firmly established as the premier carvery competition on Ireland and Northern Ireland’s culinary calendar.

Over the next four weeks, the finalists will receive a visit from the team of mystery diners to find out who serves the best carvery in the chosen pubs and hotels in each region. From there, the provincial winners and Great Carvery Hotel of the Year and Great Carvery Pub of the Year will be revealed.

Speaking about the competition, Mark McCarthy, Business Development Chef at Unilever Food Solutions, said: “The standard of entry to the competition was very high this year, but all of the hotels and pubs on the shortlist have proven themselves to be the country’s finest carveries of an exceptionally high quality. I’m looking forward to seeing which of these great establishments come out on top.

“At Unilever Food Solutions, we believe that a carvery meal is a tradition worth celebrating. The quality of the food served, the atmosphere, value, customer service and attention to detail reflect what the Great Carvery of the Year competition is all about. I know this year’s chosen venues are all serious contenders for the overall titles.”

Bringing this year’s Great Carvery of the Year to a close, winners will be announced in October. The winning venues will each receive a specially commissioned wall plaque to inform customers that they are about to sit down and enjoy the best carvery in Ireland.

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.”
