Recognised for their hard work and dedication has secured a trip to the 'Big Apple' for two local employees.

Each month at The Killarney Park and The Ross, four awards are given to team members in recognition of excellence in the areas of friendliness, respect, teamwork, and delivering an exceptional guest experience.

This year at their Christmas party, the 'Most Valued Employees' for both hotels were recognised, and the award recipients for 2022 were Sheila Fahy, a Chef at The Killarney Park for over nine years, and Adam Kania, Sous Chef who has worked at The Ross Hotel for 13 years.

"Sheila and Adam embody the values we strive to achieve, and their dedication and commitment are greatly appreciated," said Marcus Treacy, General Manager of The Killarney Park.

As winners of the 'Most Valued Employees' award, Sheila and Adam will each receive a trip for two to New York City, a testament to The Killarney Park and The Ross hotels’ commitment to rewarding and recognising their employees.

'Great Place to Work' certification

The Killarney Park is proud to announce its recent certification as a 'Great Place to Work'. This prestigious recognition is based on employee feedback and demonstrates The Killarney Parks' commitment to creating a positive and supportive work environment for its staff.

The 'Great Place to Work' programme evaluates companies on various factors including trust in leadership, fairness and respect, and camaraderie among employees. The Killarney Park received high marks in all categories and was acknowledged for its supportive and inclusive company culture.

"We are honoured to receive this recognition," Marcus added.

"Creating a positive and inclusive workplace environment is a top priority for us and it is wonderful to see the efforts of our team recognised. Our employees are the backbone of our organisation, and their satisfaction is key to our success."

The Killarney Park, along with its sister hotel The Ross, strive to create an environment for their employees that encourages them to work together and give their guests the best service.

The Killarney Park reopened for the season yesterday (Thursday) having undergone an extensive ground floor refurbishment.

Antoinette Cunningham who retired last week from An Garda Síochána and the Association of Garda Sergeant’s and Inspector’s as their General Secretary started her career 33 years ago in Killarney.

Sergeant In charge at Killarney Garda Station Dermot O’Connell paid tribute to her achievements and her unrelenting commitment to improving the policing environment.

As a former Chairman, Secretary and delegate of the Kerry Branch, Sergeant Dermot O’Connell worked closely with Antoinette in AGSI for many years.

“Her support for members of the Association was second to none. Antoinette always pursued what was right and just. Her ability, knowledge and professionalism was acknowledged both internally and externally by other representative bodies and also professional bodies,” he said.

“When Antoinette arrived here at her first station, the late Jack McGrath was the Sergeant In Charge.”
“As many know Sergeant Jack McGrath frequently walked the beat. During this time Jack shared much of his experience with Antoinette who proved her ability as a competent Garda to Sergeant Jack McGrath. “
“Jack was very impressed by her ability even at that early stage, he always spoke highly of Antoinette and followed her career path with great interest.”

Antoinette subsequently transferred to Limerick (Roxboro Road and Mayorstone Garda Stations). As a Sergeant she moved to the Garda College and completed a Master’s Degree in Adult Learning and a BA in Training and Education.
In 2021 Antoinette was honoured by University Galway with an Alumni Award for her significant contribution in the field of policing.

She became the first female member to serve with the Association of Sergeants and Inspectors at Branch level, National Executive level, President, Deputy General Secretary and finally General Secretary.

“On behalf of the Kerry Branch of AGSI I wish Antoinette the very best in whatever the future holds for her and her family,” added Sergeant O’Connell.
