Kerry Airport remains open for Kerry-Dublin flights

Published

on

Kerry Airport Ireland has said that it remains open throughout and beyond the current restrictions to service the Kerry-Dublin PSO flights and to support emergency air services.

Advice relating to non-essential overseas travel continues to affect the aviation industry globally and air travel remains ancillary to the incredible efforts being made by so many at home and abroad to keep us safe and well, John Mulhern, CEO Kerry Airport Ireland, said in a statement.

“We also maintain a vital swift connection with Dublin for frontline staff and essential journeys, including those who must travel for healthcare treatments.

PCR Test

Passengers from Kerry who may be connecting to an onward international destination from Dublin are reminded to carry confirmation of a negative PCR Test taken within 72 hours of arrival at their destination or arrival in Ireland (some countries may vary).

Passengers who wish to undergo a COVID test can visit: Bon Secours Health System - Covid Self Referral Form.

“Around 20 percent of jobs in Kerry are directly dependent on the tourism and hospitality sectors with a vibrant airport being a crucial to their needs. Many months of toil lie ahead and Kerry Airport remains determined to continue its mission in supporting Kerry and this region’s economy when it is safe to do so,” Mr Mulhern said.

“The board, management and staff at Kerry Airport recognise the massive impact that COVID-19 has had on passenger numbers since March 2020. However, public health remains the primary focus and everyone at Kerry Airport supports the advice to avoid non-essential air travel until it is deemed safe to do so.”

There’s no language barrier when it comes to dancing – which is why one local group is organising classes to unite communities.

KASI, the Killarney Immigrant Support Centre, has teamed up with dance instructor John Moriarty to teach both Ukrainians and multiple cultures living in Kerry Irish set dancing steps from next week.

The first class will take place on Tuesday evenings, starting next week (September 27) at St Mary’s Parish Hall at 6.30pm and all are welcome to join.

The idea is to help Ukrainians living in Killarney and Kerry to come and have fun and get to know locals better, KASI coordinator, Marilyn Catapat-Counihan, explained to the Killarney Advertiser.

“We have a women’s group for all ages where we do crochet, sewing and art and crafts, where they can talk which is good. I had the music on and they were dancing. I asked if they would like to do dancing classes so I organised it with John Moriarty who is well known in Killarney.”

She added that the women are very excited to learn set dancing and get to know other people from the area.

“Sometimes when you meet new people the language can be a barrier and when you’re dancing everybody is moving. He will open it to everyone so there’ll be integration, it’s fun as well. They are all very excited.”

The rising cost of fuel is already having a negative effect on charity events with some limiting numbers.

On October 9, the annual Multiple Sclerosis South Kerryv Walk takes place over the Old Kenmare Road.

First run in 2002, this year’s event will celebrate 20 years since its foundation but two years were lost as a result of the pandemic.

This year’s walk will be limited to 150 people – three coach loads – so event organisers can cut back on running costs.

It will only be possible to participate in this year’s event if walkers pre-register.

“Walkers must raise at least €40 to make it worthwhile,” organiser John O’Shea told the Killarney Advertiser.

“Spaces are limited, 150 people equals three coaches and we need smaller coaches to get into the start of the Old Kenmare Road as that is just a bog road. We have limited numbers for cost and operational reasons.”

Mr O’Shea thanked event sponsors O’Callaghan Coaches and The Gleneagle Hotel for their support of the event.

Registration forms can be obtained by calling John on 087 2348824.
