When the rumour mill started spinning this week that Killarney was to lose another retail store the Killarney Advertiser made contact with Kilkenny Design to seek clarity. 

The long-time Killarney retailer is in fact maintaining its presence in Killarney, albeit in a shared space with its sister business Christy's on Main St. Speaking to the Killarney Advertiser this week a spokesperson for the stores said

"Kilkenny Design is pleased to announce an exciting development with the integration of both Kilkenny Design Stores in Killarney. The Kilkenny Design store located at 3 New Street will soon be integrated with its sister store - Christy's - at 10/11 Main Street Killarney in the coming months.

"This strategic move is aimed at enhancing the overall experience for both domestic and international customers by consolidating the strengths and offerings of both brands under one roof. Our valued colleagues from the New Street location have been briefed and we are committed to ensure a smooth transition.

"The integration will bring together unique product offerings, providing a more extensive and diverse selection for our customers. As part of this move, we will invest in the revamp of the Christy's Killarney store to create an even more vibrant and inviting space for shoppers. The retail space at 3 New Street will be available soon for lease, offering a unique opportunity for a new venture in the heart of Killarney."

Next Friday (June 21), members of the public are invited to attend the Mass taking place at 6.30pm.

Now in its 30th year, the Mass was originally an idea by Geoffrey O’Donoghue who sadly died four years after it began.

“There was an Augustinian Monastery on Innisfallen Island and the people, including priests and monks and they say Brian Boro, went out there to study. The lake, Lough Lein is called ‘The Lake of Learning’,” said his wife Mary who carries on the tradition in his memory.

“My husband Geoffrey was a descendent of the O’Donoghues and he wanted to have Mass on the island. The O’Donoghues built Ross Castle and owned the lands and the lake surrounding it which was later donated by John McShane to the people of Killarney. He [Geoffrey] asked one of the friars and one day he got a call from the OPW that there would be a plaque unveiled to John McShane and they asked if the Mass could coincide with it. It was attended by Sr Pauline, John McShane’s daughter.”

She added that all the public are welcome to attend. Boats, which will have a nominal fee to cover their costs, will be carrying passengers out from 4pm onwards.

Th standard was high throughout all categories but in the Novice category, Iryna Halaieva’s photograph of O’Sullivan’s Cascade was deemed the winner.

“A waterfall is my favourite waterbody and long exposure is my favourite photographic technique,” she said. “I do my best to have as many waterfalls as possible in my photo collection. I heard a lot about O’Sullivan’s Cascade and wanted to visit that hidden gem of Kerry. So, shortly before our club competition I went with a friend to Tomies Wood to photograph it. It was a dream come true for me.”
