THE curtain will be raised on a slick and hilarious pantomime in the INEC Killarney in January. Beauty and the Beast will feature a star-studded cast including comedian Karl Spain, Red Rock star Adam Weafer and, RTÉjr star Clara Murray.

Limerick comedian Karl Spain, familiar for his TV appearances including Karl Spain Wants a Woman and RTÉ’s Operation Transformation, will play castle keeper, Bertie in the fabulous family pantomime.

Ladies favourite and Red Rock star Adam Weafer will join the show as the loveable and misunderstood Beast. Clara Murray, who is well known to Irish audiences as a presenter of Twigin, Singalong, Pop Goes the Weekend on RTÉjr and will join this year’s pantomime as the feisty heroine, Belle.

Comedy duo and creators of the hilarious sellout show It’s Wine O’clock Teresa McBride and Rozlyn Sheridan will be joining the show as the hilarious Breda and Bridie, dim-witted servants to the Beast who are sure to get up to some hijinks.

Red Rock alumni John Lovett takes on the role of the glamorous Dame Lola. Michael Kiersey will play the selfie-obsessed Gaston, who professes his love for the beautiful Belle. Damien Douglas will bring the panto fun factor as his silly but loveable sidekick Gascraic.

There will be two shows daily from Tuesday, January 2, to Thursday, January 4. Tickets priced at €25 and €80 (family ticket) will be on sale soon. See www.inec.ie or call 064-667 1555.

Tributes have been paid to Peggy O’Callaghan, who was laid to rest on Tuesday of this week.

Peggy played a central role in all activities related to Kilcummin parish. She passed away peacefully at her home on Friday, January 7.

Peggy and her husband Michael founded Kilcummin Scor in 1978 – the music and drama arm of the local GAA club.

“It afforded the opportunity to females to participate in club activities long before ladies’ football was initiated and it brought many people into the club, many of whom remained involved in different capacities over the years,” said a club statement.

“She has left us a wonderful legacy and will be remembered fondly by those lucky enough to have met her.”

Peggy will be sadly missed by her husband Michael, sons Diarmuid and Shane, daughters-in-law Trisha and Áine, grandchildren Dara, Caoimhe, Donnacha, Siún and Éabha, brothers Seánie and Frank, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews, extended family, neighbours and friends.

Plans to link the Monsignor O’Flaherty Road with New St via a new road at Bohereen na Goun have been announced by Killarney Municipal District.

Town engineer John Ahern told Wednesday’s Killarney Municipal District Meeting between elected councillors and senior council executives that Kerry County Council intends to make a compulsory purchase order on lands that will link the two town centre streets.

If plans come to fruition it will be possible for motorists on New St to get to the top of High St, adjacent to the Killarney Advertiser’s town centre office, without travelling through the town centre. The plan was first mooted as far back as 2016.

The announcement caught councillors off guard, it was one of the last topics discussed at the four-hour meeting, but it was broadly welcomed by all.

“This access will change the dynamic of traffic movement in the town forever,” said Cllr Niall Kelleher.

Further details of the surprise project are set to be revealed to elected members over the next four to six weeks.
