It’s ‘Happy Hour Again’ at Courtney’s

Courtney’s Bar Manager Brian Murphy has told the Killarney Advertiser that he thought he was been scammed when singer Paul Heaton’s manager called him to place a €1,000 bar tab.

Heaton, the lead singer of the House Martins and The Beautiful South, celebrated his 60th birthday on Monday. To mark the occasion he placed €1,000 bar tabs in 60 selected bars in Ireland and Britain.

Courtney’s Bar on Plunkett St was one of the chosen bars.

Heaton had originally planned a cycling tour throughout Ireland and Britain and hoped to visit the 60 pubs – known music venues – but the tour fell through as preparation was not possible during the pandemic.

“About two weeks ago I got a call from Paul’s management company,” Brian told the Killarney Advertiser. “My first thought was this is a scam, she was looking for IBAN numbers to transfer the money. I had to ask a few hard questions to check the veracity of it all. Everything added up and I was told to say nothing until Paul posted it on his social media. We had about one hundred people in and out all night. I have no idea why he picked here. I know he played Killarney years ago and, maybe, he was in during that time or maybe it's our reputation for supporting local music.”

The pupils and staff of Two Mile Community National School were delighted to welcome Mr Norio Maruyama,  the Japanese Ambassador to Ireland on Tuesday.

The Ambassador was at the school to promote the teaching of the Japanese language and culture through the ‘Say Yes to Languages’ programme.

“The pupils in Two Mile were very interested to listen to stories about Japan and to learn about the links between our two countries,” said school principal Catherine Barry.
“As a multi-denominational school, we are very open to different languages and cultures and we look forward to working with the Japanese embassy from next September.”
Two Mile Community National School is the only multi-denominational school in the Killarney school district.
