Published

on

Killarney Legion's annual awards night took place in Killarney Plaza Hotel last Sunday 18th March and has become a most pleasant event where the club recognises those that have served above and beyond.

This year the Legion honoured Seanie Culloty as club person of the year and indeed his contribution from his playing days to his leadership of the Saturday morning academy has been a vital part of the growth and development of the juvenile section.

Young player of the year went to Cian Gammell who had such a brilliant year and took winners medals with the Sem and a stellar showing with the All Ireland winning Kerry minors.

Junior player of the year went to the tireless Aidan Slattery while senior player went to Shaun Keane who has been without doubt one of Killarney Legion's most consistent and dedicated performers.

The ladies were represented on the night by Kiah Doona  who has been an outstanding player right from her early juvenile days.

A special award went to the St.Patricks Day group who have been innovative,entertaining and so hard working for the past number of years.

Winners medals were also presented to the senior Ladies and the senior men who went up to Division 1 as unbeaten champions.

Lifelong member of the Legion Club Joanne O'Riordan was in attendance and once again let up the room! All in all, a great night was had by all!

Killarney native Patrick O’Sullivan Greene will launch his second book in the Great Southern Killarney on December 2.

O’Sullivan Greene explains Éamon de Valera’s mission to gain recognition for the newly formed Irish republic in New York in 1919 in his latest book ‘Revolution at the Waldorf: America and the Irish War of Independence’.

Without American recognition and funding the young Irish Government was sure to fail against the might of the British Empire and the book tells the story of how de Valera and Ireland-based Michael Collins – much to the defiance of the British authorities at Dublin Castle – got the new State off the ground.

O’Sullivan grew up in New Street and is now based in Beaufort after a career in finance took him all over the world including Dublin, London, New York and France.

“Killarney is the natural place for me to launch the book,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“There will be an interesting mix of people there.”

O’Sullivan Greene published his first book, ‘Crowdfunding the Revolution: The First Dáil Loan and the Battle for Irish Independence’, in 2020.

One community group have shown that they care deeply for others by crafting handmade blankets for charity.

Using their range of skills and some colourful wool, members of Kilcummin Community Care worked together to make blankets for service users on the Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus.

“Each blanket is assigned as a personal gift to the clients using the Cancer Link Bus and is kept by them,” Kate Fleming, Chairperson of Kilcummin Community Care, said.

The knitting of the squares to make the blankets began at a gathering in the Rose Hotel in 2018. It was a gathering of different volunteer groups.

The Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus were requesting knitted squares to make blankets for the clients who were using their facilities, she explained.

“Kilcummin Community Care were knitting at the time, so it was decided to help out this worthy cause. We received donations of wool from people in the parish and surrounding areas. Kilcummin ICA also got involved in the efforts.”

During the two years of COVID-19, members of both organisations continued to knit and are still knitting to the present day.
