Killarney Advertiser launches reader survey

Published

on

The Killarney Advertiser is preparing for its 50th anniversary and we are inviting you – our readers – to have your say on the future of Killarney’s Number One news source.

Founded in 1973 by the late Danny Casey, father of current MD Cormac, the Killarney Advertiser has become an institution in the town.

This week we are launching a survey about what you want from the Killarney Advertiser – from what we cover to how we cover it.

“Hard to believe we will be 50 years young next year. Our hyper local-news led by our trusted journalists ensures we are your favourite read each week, now we need you to help shape our content for the future,” the Killarney Advertiser’s general manager, Aidan Quirke, said.

“The readership survey is your opportunity to shape your local news. For 50 years we have led the way in Killarney community news, now we need your help to shape the next 50 years!”

All who complete the survey fully will be entered into a draw for some fantastic prizes including tickets for upcoming gigs at the INEC Arena and free membership to the Killarney Towers Leisure Club.

The project is being led by Tristan O’Donoghue. The Mill Road resident is a Marketing student at Munster Technology University. Tristan is on a 15-week work placement with the Killarney Advertiser and parent company KC Print as part of his university course.

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.

A photograph of one of Killarney’s hidden beauty spots was deemed the winner of Killarney Camera Club’s most recent competition.

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.”
