The Killarney Derby: Celtic to host Athletic under Friday night lights

Premier A, Killarney Celtic v Killarney Athletic, Friday (7.30pm), Celtic Park

In what promises to be a typically feisty local derby, FAI Junior Cup quarter-finalists Killarney Celtic will play host to league leaders Killarney Athletic under lights in Celtic Park on Friday night.

The Hoops have already achieved a great amount of success on the national stage this season with historic wins over Ballynanty Rovers and Newmarket Celtic, and next week they play Cork City in a friendly before facing off against Janesboro in what is surely the biggest game in their forty-year history.

Domestically they’ve only played seven games in the league but have an impressive record of five wins, a draw and just one defeat. That puts them in fifth place, eight points behind near neighbours Athletic but with four games in hand.

We’ve had a solid first half of the season with Athletic and find ourselves top of the league with twenty-four points from eleven games played. We had a good 3-1 win over current champions Dingle Bay Rovers last Wednesday night so confidence is high, but we know Celtic will be an even bigger challenge. They’re still very much the team to beat in Kerry as far as we’re concerned.

Friday will be a good test of where Athletic are, while Celtic will be hoping to get a massive week or so off to the best possible start. It should be a great game.

The coveted KY-1 plate has been allocated to Adams of Tralee for the second year in a row.

The county’s Hyundai dealership secured the coveted plate as a result of the Hyundai Tucson topping the individual model sales charts for 2021.

Available in diesel, petrol and pug-in hybrid, the Tucson offers something for every motorists.

With the switch to full electric not far away, Adams of Tralee’s general manager Marcus O’Shea believes that hybrid offers the perfect transition from fossil fuelled-cars to electric.

“It is a steeping-stone towards full electric,” he told the Killarney Advertiser. “It reduces the range anxiety for those not ready for full electric and it gets people used to new ways – plugging in the car at night at home will become normal and hybrid is the first step.”

The Tucson range has a model to suit all tastes and budgets. As well as being available in petrol, diesel or hybrid, each power variant is also available as in entry-level, mid or high specification formats.

Nicole Coffey of Nicole’s Hair Salon on St Anne’s was inspired to run a fundraiser for a women’s refuge after hearing distressing stories from some of her clients.

On Saturday last she offered a wash and blow-dry to clients and rather than charging them for the her services her customers made a donation to Adapt Women’s Refuge in Tralee.

Nicole was inspired to run the charity day because a lot of her regular clients opened up to her while they were getting their hair done.

The timing of her charity day was poignant as it came just days after Ashling Murphy was murdered while out for a run in her own town of Tullamore.

“People open up while I do their hair, many of them would not know that there is a refuge in Kerry,” she told the Killarney Advertiser. “I have experience with clients who are struggling. I had this idea to create more awareness for Adapt.”

She raised €2,000 for Adapt and the cheque was handed over to the Tralee-based charity on Thursday night this week.

Such was the success of her charity day Nicole worked from 7am to 7pm and as well as cash donations customers also donated vouchers and care packs to the charity.
