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.

She is best known for promoting the county’s GAA news – and now Leona Twiss has been rewarded for her efforts.

The Gaelic Games Writers’ Association named Leona as its Public Relations Officer of the Year at an awards ceremony at Iveagh Gardens in Dublin on Friday night last.

Leona has been the PRO for Kerry GAA for the last five years but will have to step down this year due to County Board rules.

“I was speechless, it was wonderful to get PRO of the Year but I am only as good as the team around me and this success is attributed to the hard work of the entire PR team at Kerry GAA,” she told the Killarney Advertiser.

As well as her busy schedule managing the media affairs for the Kerry County Board, Leona is also principal at Cullina National School in Beaufort.

On the eve of the final of the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest, President Zelensky said “Ukrainians need victory – big and small”.

That is why Ukrainians who gathered around the world on Saturday night were waiting for Ukraine’s win in the song contest, just like the victory in the war.

The Ukrainians from the Innisfallen Hotel were waiting for that too and the overall winner, Ukrainian band Kalush Orchestra, caused a real emotional storm in the hall!

“After my country’s victory at Eurovision, I felt proud, cried, laughed and couldn’t believe it. I am also grateful to everyone who voted for us, because this victory shows how much most European countries support us,” Iryna Melnychuk said.

“Voting around the world for Ukraine gives us hope for support from the world community not only in the Eurovision Song Contest,” said Stepan Krasnenkov.

The Ukrainian band Kalush Orchestra received the highest number of points from the audience during the entire existence of the competition: 439 points from the audience, 192 points from the professional jury. In the end – 631 points, which brought Ukraine victory.

Also, thanks to the Kalush Orchestra, the whole world now knows about the humanitarian catastrophe in Mariupol and the Azovstal enterprises, where wounded Ukrainian soldiers and civilians are under blockade without food, water and medicine.

After their performance, Kalush Orchestra addressed the audience from around the world with a request to save the defenders of Mariupol, who are at the Azovstal plant.

“Please help Ukraine, Mariupol! Help Azovstal! Right now!” – the band called.

After these words, search queries for Azovstal and Mariupol took off on the Internet as people were looking for what they meant.

Irish Eurovision contestant Brooke also sang it and the whole world sings the song of the winners ‘Stefania’.
