Killorglin CYMS Players promise a comedy that will have you shaking in your seats and begging for more!

The group are currently in the final stages of rehearsal for their forthcoming production of Jimmy Keary’s comedy 'The Two Loves of Gabriel Foley', which they’ll take to the CYMS Community Hall from April 3 to 5, and again from April 10 to 12. Doors open at 7pm and curtain will rise at 8pm sharp.

‘The Two Loves of Gabriel Foley’ is set in Aggie Foley’s farmhouse in rural Ireland. Aggie is close to 70 and is keen that her only son, Gabriel – now past 40 – will find himself a wife.

Gabriel, who is played by Donal Piggot, is not opposed to the idea and to improve his chances, joins the nearby town’s newly established drama society - ‘The Prince of Denmark Players’.

There he meets Hazel, played by Irene Kavanagh, and quickly becomes infatuated with her, much to the displeasure of Chrissie McCabe, played by Martha Fleming, from the neighbouring farm, who has always had her eye on Gabriel.

When circumstances warrant that a rehearsal has to be held at Gabriel’s home, the action shifts into full comic gear, with neighbouring farmer, Liam Gavigan, played by Brian O’Sullivan, and Aggie’s sister, Lucy Lacey, acted by Gina O’Shea, playing their part in stirring the pot.

Adding spice to the mixture are the posh writer and director, Morag Dellamere played by Sarah Pigott, and Clive Snell played by Mike Moriarty, a self-important member of ‘The Prince of Denmark Players’ who, coincidentally, also has his eye on Hazel. The part of Aggie Foley herself is played by Bridget Cahillane.

The play is directed by Brendan Reidy who is no stranger to drama. Brendan was a thespian with the Sliabh Luachra Drama Group for many years before moving to Killorglin and getting involved in the CYMS Players, and brings his own unique style of direction and stunning set design to this production.

Following record breaking crowds at last year’s production it is advisable to book early  to avoid disappointment. Contact the ticket office on 066 9762053. Admission is €12.

Fans of the ice will be disappointed to hear that Killarney on Ice will not return for a second year.

Following its huge popularity year on year since returning to Killarney in 2015, the promoters of Killarney on Ice are disappointed to confirm that they are unable to operate again this year.

Rising case numbers, uncertain COVID-19 restrictions, and insurance challenges have been the main drivers behind the decision not to open, according to the company.

As Kerry’s only festive ice rink, the facility has brought much fun and life to the town over the years, attracting thousands of people from all over the county, and indeed the whole country, with many families coming to stay overnight in Killarney and enjoying all that this great town has to offer.

As well as friends and families coming to skate, schools, youth clubs, sports teams and employees of local companies use the group booking discount rate to plan sessions on the ice, and Killarney on Ice would like to thank them all for their continuing loyalty.

“We sincerely hope to be back better and stronger in 2022, and we look forward to welcoming all of our valued customers,” Tim O’Donoghue, the promoter of the rink, told the Killarney Advertiser.

“In the meantime, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.”

The Government has approved 10 new posts for Kerry County Council to assist with the delivery of their social housing targets.

The news was announced today (Friday) as part of the Government’s new housing plan ‘Housing for All’ which commits to strengthening the capacity of Local Authorities to initiate, design, plan, develop and manage housing projects.

The plan acknowledges that this requires the resourcing of housing delivery teams and the posts being announced include a wide range of positions from engineers to quantity surveyors and architects with provision also made for the necessary administrative resources.

“I welcome this announcement by my Cabinet colleague Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage, Darragh O’Brien,” Minister Foley said.

“Housing is a key priority for Government and these new posts are an endorsement of the excellent work carried out by Kerry County Council and a deserved recognition of their continued commitment to providing social housing to all local communities across Kerry.”
