KC Print, sister company to the Killarney Advertiser, based in Upper Lissivigeen, is one of Ireland's leading printing companies and prints the ‘Advertiser’ weekly, employing thirty people.

The Advertiser was put forward by KC Print in the ‘Newspaper & Freesheet Printer of the Year’ and is nominated for a second year in a row.

The Killarney Advertiser, now in its 51st year, is recognised as one of the premium free community news magazines in the country and has been recognised by judges for its design and print quality.  

The good news doesn’t stop there for the team, with ‘We Are Killarney’ tourism magazine, designed and edited by the Advertiser team and printed by KC Print, nominated in two categories.

The tourism magazine has fast become the go-to guide to Killarney for tourists with its head turning design and must- have guides to all things Killarney.

Finally, the KC Print team were also nominated for their work on the Newbridge Silver Catalogue in two categories. The team have worked with this client for many years producing its high-end catalogues.

The project also involved another Killarney company, Impact Print Ireland, led by David Long, who provided the silver foil for the cover.

“We are proud to be nominated across three categories this year. I am especially delighted for the Advertiser team led by Chris Davies and our lead designer Leszek Szeligowski. They bring real passion to both the Advertiser and We Are Killarney magazines, and it shows,” said Aidan Quirke, Sales Director, KC Print.

“While the Advertiser creates the content, our team of skilled technical staff in KC Print ensure we produce the highest quality print possible. There is a wide team from accounts to customer service that contribute to our success.  

It’s great to see innovation and quality being recognised nationally, and the work of Managing Director Cormac Casey and family over 50 years,” added Aidan.

Corcoran’s Furniture and Carpets charity walk through the Gap of Dunloe on Saturday raised almost €12,000 for Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland

There were 37 participants in the event, which included AADI families, dogs, and representatives, as well as fundraisers, supporters, and members of the Corcoran’s team. The stars of the day were the three life-changing super-hero dogs, Buzz, Baron and Hank.

Former Kerry Footballer, James O’ Donoghue, was the ambassador for the event
Those taking part left Ross Castle and were treated to a phenomenal boat ride in the expert hands of Diarmuid ‘Dux’ O’Donoghue of Gap of Dunloe Traditional Boat Tours. The O’Donoghue family entertained the entire group with a range of fascinating stories outlining the history of the lakes of Killarney and Killarney National Park.

The group set out from Lord Brandon’s Cottage and walked the 11K through the iconic Gap of Dunloe, with two AADI families and their dogs taking part in the full walk. This was followed by a well-deserved meal and some rest and relaxation at Kate Kearney’s Cottage. Flemings Taxi’s Killarney brought the group back to Ross Castle, Killarney upon completion of the event.

“On behalf of everybody at Corcoran’s Furniture, we would like to thank everybody who participated in our Gap of Dunloe charity event on behalf of AADI,” said Shane O’ Callaghan, Financial Controller atCorcoran’s.

“Collectively we have raised almost €12,000 for this incredible charity and monies are still coming in. We are extremely grateful to all who supported our walk, and also to James O’ Donoghue, Christina Tagney, the Gap of Dunloe Traditional Boat Tours, the fantastic support of Noel Lucey and Donal McCarthy from the Order Of Malta, Killarney branch, and to Killarney National Park, Kate Kearney’s Cottage and Fleming’s Taxi’s. All funds raised will go toward the expert training and maintenance of the upcoming AADI dogs who will make a dramatic difference to so many children with Autism and their families.”
