Kids experience magic and wonder at Killarney Fairy Trail

Published

By Michelle Crean

Creative fairy stories caught the imaginations of young pupils on a very special trip outside the classroom.

On Monday last Second Class pupils from Holy Cross Mercy primary school made their way to the fairy trail in Killarney National Park. But what made the trip so exciting was the seven fairy related stories they heard from the Transition Year students from Killarney Community College about how the trail came in to existence.

The Second Class pupils were broken into pods and walked between sculptures to hear each story delivered in a fun and engaging way. The idea came about as part of a TY English project in creative writing and creating links with their primary school neighbours.

On completing the trail, the groups played games and were treated to a goody bag which included homemade fairy cakes baked by the TYs themselves. They also produced a fairy worksheet with questions about each story for the pupils to work on when they returned to class.

The Mercy girls were incredibly attentive and well behaved throughout, they were a credit to their teachers and school, TY coordinator Ms McCarthy said.

"This project showcased this group's creativity, confidence and organisation skills. It was great to work with a local school and it gave our students a great experience of working with primary school children."

It’s back – and not before time – the hugely popular Killarney Rotary Club evening of Wine and Art will return this November.

The pandemic enforced its absence and now every effort is being made to make up for lost time.

Widely regarded as one of the social highlights of the year in Killarney, this year’s gathering will take place in the Great Southern Killarney on Wednesday, November 30, commencing at 7.15pm.

Tickets, which will be available at the door, are priced at €20 and all proceeds raised on the night will go to deserving local charities and community organisations.

Over the years the evening of wine and art has raised tens of thousands of Euro for great causes and the 2022 proceeds will be of enormous benefit to the chosen groups.

This year, once again, the event is being held in association with Daly’s SuperValu and supported by Killarney Brewing and Distilling Company.

Rotary Club President, Rayla Tadjimatova, has appealed to all artists who might like to showcase their work on the night to get in touch with club members, as soon as possible, to guarantee inclusion.

“We are reaching out not only to artists who have supported the event in the past but to any new artists who wish to take the opportunity to place their work in front of a very appreciative local audience of up to one thousand people on the night,” she said.

Those interested should email killarneyrotaryclub@gmail.com as soon as possible.
