Killarney chef introduces school children to the joy of cooking

By Sean Moriarty
Well-known Killarney chef Chad Byrne is set to appear on a series of on-line cookery classes aimed at primary school children who want to learn new skills during the lockdown.

Byrne, who is the head chef at the Brehon Hotel, is no stranger to online cookery classes.

He is the founder of Chef Collab, a mentoring programme for apprentice chefs and the Kerry County Cooking Championships. As a result of these and other projects he is involved in he has participated in several initiatives promoting workplace opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities and during the early days of lockdown, he produced a series of online cookery classes.

The classes got the attention of the National Parents Council, a national organisation that supports the parents of children in primary or early education, and they invited him to produce a series of cooking classes aimed at children.

“The classes are based on simple tasks and a bit of fun,” he told the Killarney Advertiser. “It is nothing too complicated and a bit of craic.”

The programmes will be broadcast on npc.ie and registered parents and teachers will get an email in advance of the first broadcast.

Well-known Dalton’s Avenue woman Eileen Switzer has been named as the Honorary President of Killarney Valley Athletic Club in recognition of her work as a volunteer.

The club held its annual awards night on Friday night last.

As well as presenting awards to club members in recognition of their achievements at home and abroad they decided to honour Mrs Switzer for her “lifetime of volunteering to the community, to sport, to youth and for championing diversity and inclusion”.

“Eileen has been an advocate, a coach and an administrator in the sport of athletics for over 60 years in the town of Killarney, Kerry and beyond,” said club chair Jerry Griffin.

Eileen and her husband Frank have dedicated their lives to the community games and athletics in the greater Killarney area.

“I enjoy, but I don’t like, all the limelight,” she told the Killarney Advertiser.

“I like to watch newcomers as they come up through the ranks, many of the Community Games people of the past are now running the committee.”

In a life time dedicated to volunteerism in Killarney Eileen has helped sports like golf, pitch and putt and badminton grow.  She was also heavily involved in the local Irish dancing scene and remains a great supporter of Kerry Parents and Friends.
