One local hotel who had to close its doors due to the Level 3 restrictions donated up to half a dozen crates of fresh food to a Kerry charity.

Adapt Kerry Women’s Refuge and Support Services received a very generous donation of food, which included fruit, vegetables and meat, from The Lake Hotel in Killarney.

And it's the second time since the beginning of the pandemic that staff at the hotel have thought of them as they donated during the lockdown.

"It's a worthwhile charity," Executive Chef Noel Enright said.

"It's the second time we've donated, we also did it at the start of the lockdown. It's nice to do something to help."

Adapt General Manager Catherine Casey told the Killarney Advertiser this week that they are very grateful them.

"We are very grateful to all the team at the hotel," she said. "We recognise that this is a difficult time for the hospitality sector and even though faced with another temporary closing they were able to reach out and support the women and children that use our service. We have also received food donations from Tralee Golf Club and from individuals, and I want to thank everyone who has offered support."

Adapt Kerry relies heavily on donations and their charity shop accepts clothes, shoes, bric-a-brac and books, she added.
"We are also grateful to everyone who donates and purchases from the shop. COVID-19 continues to challenge all businesses and charities. We know it is also putting pressure on the women and children we support, both in refuge and through our outreach services. We know that restrictions can make this time more difficult for families living with coercive control and abuse."

Adapt would encourage women to seek support by ringing them on 066 7129100.

"We can give support over the phone 24 hours a day."

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
