Over 200 people are expected to attend the Killarney London Reunion 50th anniversary tonight (Saturday) at the famous Crown Hotel in Cricklewood.

The annual reunion, which is sponsored by the Killarney Advertiser, is one of the social highlights of the year for Killarney people living in London.

Each year the Killarney London committee select a ‘Person of the Year’ – and Jack Ryan is the deserved recipient this year.

Aside from Ryan’s celebration, the organisation, which served as a home away from home for Killarney people, will celebrate its 50th birthday.

The Killarney Association London was formed in 1969 by local priest Tom Looney, who was the parish priest in Wembley at the time, Cllr Donal Grady and the late Cllr Michael Courtney.

Former town clerk Michael O’Leary has been a Killarney side committee member since his Council days.

“One of the most important things, in practical terms, was when young Killarney people emigrated to London there was a welcome and social system in place that still exists to this day,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.
“There were always two sides to the organisation and the local committee existed to help those who wanted to move home after time away.”

What do roses, wrens, King Puck, fairies and Santa Claus have in common? Well, all now feature in a new children’s book co-written by a mother and son.

The new illustrated poetry collection for children, ‘A Very Kerry Year’, by Killorglin mother and son, Jacinta and Conor Browne, has been published just in time for Christmas.

And all proceeds will be donated to Comfort for Chemo, an organisation whose mission it is to build and equip a chemotherapy unit for the people of Kerry.

The charity is close to the young author’s heart as Conor himself was undergoing cancer treatment while writing this book.

With original poetry by the mother and son, the book also has another separate family connection as the talented illustrators are local artists, father-daughter duo Con and Rochelle Lucey, with each page awash with colour and beautiful drawings.

“I know first-hand how important it is to have a comfortable environment while receiving chemotherapy,” Conor said.

‘A Very Kerry Year’ is currently available for €12 from The Crystal Cave and the Reeks District Tourist Office in Killorglin and will soon be available in many more outlets throughout the county.
