Killarney Golf & Fishing Club in collaboration with one of Kerry’s leading caterers, Truffle Honey is launching its new restaurant to visitors and members.

“We are excited to welcome the team of Mike and Collette Hayes, Shane Edwards of Truffle Honey to our team," General Manager of the 127-year-old Club, Garrett Donnery, said.

"With the launch of our new restaurant we look forward to welcoming back visitors to enjoy a world-class food and dining experience surrounded by the spectacular panoramic views of our golf courses, lakes and mountains of Killarney.”

Chef, Mike Hayes who heads up the kitchen team, started his career studying Culinary Arts in Limerick, going on to chef at the five-star Park Hotel in Kenmare. He has since worked in some of the best restaurants in Ireland and internationally. Sous Chef, Louise O’Donoghue, also joins the team. Louise has worked in the exclusive Merrion Hotel in Dublin, five-star Muckcross Park Hotel and the Killarney Park Hotel. Collette Hayes, as restaurant hostess, will be responsible for event planning. Collette grew up in a guesthouse environment and working in hospitality is second nature.

The restaurant’s Director of Food and Beverage, Shane Edwards, is a Killarney native who trained in many high-end bars and restaurants both nationally and abroad, receiving his BA in Hotel and Catering Management while working on the management team of the five-star Muckcross Park Hotel.

Mr Hayes said that the restaurant will offer an appetising and varied breakfast, lunch and dinner options that will be prepared fresh daily, directly on the premises with the respect to the customers’ preferences and at an excellent price.

"We welcome visitors and members. Whether you are golfer or not, everyone is welcome. Our priority is delivering a superb casual dining experience in our beautiful location at the golf club that will have our customers coming back for more."

The new restaurant at Killarney Golf & Fishing Club, will open from Monday, June 29, seven days a week, from 9am to 9pm, and is now taking visitor and group bookings.

Works are under way to install a high-speed fibre broadband network in the remote Black Valley area of Kerry.

The Black Valley was one of the last areas of Ireland to be electrified but broadband in the region is expected to be live in the second half of the year with residents already able to pre-order their connection. 
“It is well known that Black Valley was one of the last locations to get electricity due to its remoteness and challenging terrain, so we are extremely pleased to be commencing the rollout of our high-speed fibre network now with a view to connections being available later this year,” said National Broadband Ireland Deployment CEO, TJ Malone.
  
“We are determined to ensure the rollout is as fast as possible and connection is made easy for Black Valley residents, and we have a plan in place to work around the location’s all-important tourist season.

“Black Valley is a symbol of NBI’s mission that no area will be left behind no matter how rural or remote and we are delighted that this beautiful location moves one step closer to high-speed fibre today, with all the opportunities that will unlock for the local community.”

They never duck when faced with a big challenge on the field so it was safe to assume that GAA players of the year David Clifford and Louise Ní Mhuircheartaigh weren’t going to shy away from the latest task on their home patch.

The two top footballers in the country teamed up to launch a charity duck race which will form part of this year’s St Patrick’s Festival in Killarney, where they both live.

When the working day was done, busy secondary school teachers David and Louise had some great quack and they got caught up in the spirit of the occasion along the scenic River Deenagh in Killarney National Park.

The reigning Player of the Year and Ladies Player of the Year award winner demonstrated their competitive streak when they expressed confidence that their own ducks will win The Deenagh Duck Dash on the same river at noon on Monday, March 18.

But, luckily, festival chairman Jason Clifford was there to keep the peace and he even threatened to cry fowl and brandish a card at the star players – with duck yellow deemed the most appropriate colour.

Considered by many to be the greatest players of all time in their respective codes, between them, Fossa hotshot David and Corca Dhuibhne star Louise have an incredible nine All-Star awards.

But they might be tempted to swap one if their duck wins the fun-filled race on the day after St Patrick’s Day.

All proceeds from the event will go to St Francis Special School in Beaufort, Killarney which provides specialist education for young people with learning disabilities.
Festival chairman Jason remarked: “This isn’t just a race – it’s great fun for the whole family.
“Picture the scene with a flotilla of vibrant rubber ducks racing down a winding river, their owners cheering them on and all in the name of a fantastic cause”.
Super prizes await the winners, the cost of a rubber duck to participate in the race is just €5 and they can be bought online at https://stpatricksfestivalkillarney.ie/.
