GHOSTS and ghouls will mingle with monsters and zombies at the Killarney Outlet Centre Halloween fancy dress parade this Sunday, October 30. The fun commences at 2pm and continues until 6pm with spooky swarms converging on the Outlet Centre.

Take it from us, it’s always a spook-tactic event, with covetable prizes and free fun activities for whole family.

The lucky winners of the fancy dress parade will receive a Roller RX Scooter for the best-dressed boy and a Speed Scooter for the best-dressed girl, both sponsored by O’Connor’s World of Wonder. The best-dressed family in association with Select Hotels will win a fabulous family break in Kenmare Bay Hotel B&B and one dinner for two adults and two children sponsored by Select Hotels and Kenmare Bay Hotel. The best-dressed adult will collect a family pass for Killarney Ghost Tours. All entrants are asked to donate €1 in support of Killarney Rotary Club’s campaign to End Polio Now.

Killarney Outlet Centre manager Paul Sherry said: “Every child will be given a goodie bag, kindly sponsored by Killarney Advertiser and there’s even a treat in store for parents, as everyone who comes along to the party will receive a voucher from Select Hotels of Ireland offering a free second night’s stay when you book one night away at any Select Hotel nationwide.”

The event will feature bouncy castles with A Time to Party, free Halloween face painting to put the finishing touch to your outfit and the chance to get creative at the free Halloween recycled arts and crafts workshops.

There will be free children’s entertainment with spooky storytelling sessions and Punch and Judy puppet shows in the yurt from 2pm to 4 pm. Killarney Candle Makers and Clay Fun will also be on hand to help you create a personalised candle or clay design – a small materials charge applies.
Ireland’s premier Outlet Centre hosts a bespoke arts, crafts and food fair on the ground floor on Saturday, October 29 and Sunday, October 30.

The family of a much-loved Killarney woman who passed away from cancer almost a year ago plan to run a marathon past her favourite local landmarks in her memory.

Linda Eviston died on October 10 last after a long battle with cancer.

Her husband Patrick and son Erik, with the support of her daughter Alannah, will run a 42.2km course, on the day before her anniversary to raise funds for the Irish Cancer Society.

The route will be based on landmarks that were an important part of Linda’s life. Starting from the family home in Dromkerry, before heading for the town centre and passing the Eviston House Hotel, Linda’s grandmother’s home at Park Road, Linda’s childhood home and national school in Glenflesk, Loreto where Linda attended secondary school, back to Killarney and finishing at Linda’s pride and joy – Brook Lodge Hotel.

“It is tough but we wanted to do something in Linda’s memory and help other people who might find themselves in similar circumstances,” Pat told the Killarney Advertiser. “We originally hoped to do the Dublin City Marathon but that got cancelled. This route is much better, but much tougher as it’s more hilly.”

All proceeds will be donated to the Irish Cancer Society and donations can be made via: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/inhonouroflinda.

It really was girl power at its finest – as 170 women of all ages braved the elements on Sunday to bare all for charity at the weekend.

Shore Acre in Camp was the location which was only revealed to the participants for Kerry’s first ever ‘Dip in the Nip’. And amongst the all female grouping were some Killarney ladies who joined in the empowering adventure for what was described as “a special and unforgettable morning” all in aid of Recovery Haven Kerry.

According to Marisa Reidy from Recovery Haven, the women were of all ages and all walks of life who came together for so many personal reasons.

“Some were still on their own cancer journey, some were celebrating coming out the other side and of course, many were there to honour friends and loved ones who they had lost to cancer, but we were all equal on the day – flaws and all,” Marisa, who also took part in the event, told the Killarney Advertiser.

“It was a truly uplifting and exhilarating experience and we are so, so grateful to each and every lady who joined us for a morning we will never forget. One woman described it as ‘companionship among strangers’ and that really sums it up perfectly. It was emotional, there were some tears, but lots of laughter and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. When the ladies hit the water, they all formed a circle and held hands in a gesture that was totally unplanned – it just happened organically and it was quite overwhelming.”

She added that a very special mention has to be made to Michaela and John Edwards and their team from Wild Water Adventures for their support and expertise in ensuring no stone was left unturned in making it a fabulous, safe event.

“It was an all-female team from beginning to end, from our own volunteers, stewards, registration, Gardai, teas and coffees, lifeguards, sea rescue – girl power at its finest! Now all that’s left to do is start planning for 2022!”

Donations are still being taken via the link on the Recovery Haven Kerry Facebook page.

“So far we are close on €9,000 which is just fabulous.”
