Killarney Golf and Fishing Club will partially reopen tomorrow (Monday) but under a wide range of restrictions.

Both Mahony's Point and Killeen golf courses will reopen to members only with strict regulations on the numbers of golfers allowed on courses at any one time. Golfers can only travel the permitted 5k to attend the course and bookings from outside the area will not be accepted.

The Lackabane course, the Driving Range and Academy will remain closed for the time being and plans to reopen these are under review.

The course will operate a tight timetable, Monday to Friday between 8am and 7pm and between 7am and 6pm over the weekend.

Golfers will start at 14-minute intervals and will be limited to just three balls, and other restrictions will apply.

“For the purpose of contact tracing, our members must book their tee time in advance through our online booking system or by phone,” sales and marketing manager Meg Dalton told the Killarney Advertiser.

“Golfers are expected to observe the underlying public health guidance including any restrictions which apply on travel from home. It is the responsibility of individuals to observe society-wide public health guidelines. While golf clubs must ensure that the game is played safely, it is not the responsibility of golf clubs to ensure that members adhere to the laws of the land."

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.
