Julie’s Barber Shop has relocated to a new premises on Plunkett St. The popular barber shop has operated out of 71 High St for the last 20 years but earlier this week moved to a newer base on the town’s pedestrian street.

Last month Kerry County Council erected a protective steel frame outside 71 High St as it has concerns about the safety of the structure.

“We have moved," Julia Healy told the Killarney Advertiser. “My staff have been with me 20 years and we all moved together. My customers know where I am too. Everything is the same – even our booking telephone number.”

Like all barber shops Julia’s is facing new challenges in these COVID-19 times but she tackles it with her usual humour.

“It is one in and one out now and not a million people piling in on top of one another and having the banter and sharing their news," she added.

In a further expansion Julie’s Barbers has recently opened a second shop in Barraduff.

“A lot of my customers and staff are from out that way, Barraduff and Rathmore, so why not?” she added.

Booking for both outlets can be made on 085 812 1498.

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
