A local car dealer is looking for witnesses after the wall of his garage and some of his second hand car stock was extensively damaged in a hit and run in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Dermot Healy, who runs Dermot Healy Car Sales on the Cork road, arrived at work on Thursday to find a gapping 10-foot hole in the perimeter wall of his property. The stone wall had been demolished and debris hit and damaged a number of sales cars that were parked in the forecourt of the premises.

The remains of broken lamps from the car that caused the damage were left at the scene and Mr Healy was, through contacts in the motor trade, able to identify these as belonging to a Volvo S40.

“I came home around 12.30am,” Dermot, who lives next door to his garage, told the Killarney Advertiser. “It hadn’t happened at that time. The car [a Suzuki Swift] will need a new bumper and headlamp and I don’t know how much the wall is even going to cost.”

He is appealing to any witnesses to get in touch with him at the garage on 064 6632264.

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.”
