Over 700 people from over 20 different countries are expected to descend on Killarney next month - which is sure to bring an economic boost to the town.

The INEC will host Ireland's and the world's largest business-to-business international travel trade fair from March 31 and April 1.

Meitheal is a two day workshop that gives the Irish tourism industry and overseas tourism buyers from all over the world the opportunity to meet and do business.

This is the first time since 2019 that the workshop can take place in person.

Participants are expected to be made up of approximately 300 overseas buyers and 400 Irish industry partners.

Over 13,500 appointments are conducted over the two days with many new and important contracts signed.

“If there’s one event in the calendar that tourism buyers and suppliers from all around the world look forward to with particular anticipation, that’s Meitheal. For over 10 years Fáilte Ireland has been running this annual travel trade fair, one of the largest in the world,” said Fáilte Ireland’s Suzanne Coogan.

The last ‘in person’ trade fare took place in Dublin in April 2019. The last two have been online only events.

Kerry take on Cork in the first round of the Munster Championship at Fitzgerald Stadium on Saturday.

This glamour tie always attracts a huge crowd and Cork fans will travel in their droves from the Rebel County.

As a result there will be parking restrictions and traffic disruptions in the town on Saturday afternoon.

“Please be aware that the town will be bustling with activity, and traffic congestion is expected. Some parking areas may reach capacity, so we recommend allowing extra time for your journey,” said a Garda spokesperson.

Parking will be available in the following areas near the stadium: New Street, The Glebe car park, Fair Hill car park, High Street, Rock Road car park and the Lewis Road car park.

Parking in the vicinity of Fitzgerald Stadium is reserved for residents with parking passes only.

Killarney For Palestine is raffling two tickets to a Taylor Swift concert in Edinburgh.

The group is raising funds for the Halaq family who are known to Kerry Friends of Palestine and who are currently displaced in tents in the Gaza Strip.

Their homes were destroyed in the city of Khan Younis by Israeli airstrikes.
