Killarney is to celebrate retaining its Purple Flag by holding a weekend of colourful celebrations next week.

 

The accolade, which recognises excellence in safety, vibrancy and diversity of the evening and night-time economy of the town, will be celebrated over weekend of October 18 – 20.

 

Killarney Purple Flag Working Group have acquired Purple Flag stickers which will be circulated to businesses in the purple flag area, and are seeking the support of businesses by displaying them in their premises.

On Saturday afternoon, October 19, the Purple Flag mascot will be out and about around the town, mingling on the streets and calling to shops and businesses.

“We would like to seek the support of all hotels and business owners in the town over this weekend, the following being a number of ideas which could be carried out, including  lighting premises in purple, decorating windows in purple, Purple Friday or Saturday where staff dress in purple, prominent buildings/cultural/heritage/businesses illuminated purple and purple themed events serving of non-alcoholic purple cocktails,” the group said.

The Dóchas Drama Group will run a series of short plays at the Muckross Schoolhouse from December 5 to 7.

The group’s annual performance has been switched to the Muckross venue as its traditional base – the ballroom in the Killarney Avenue Hotel is being refurbished.

“If you are fed up with the incessant rain and constant bad news. Do you need a break? Are tired of listening to advice about your Christmas cake recipe? There is a perfect solution,” said the group’s Liz Ryan.

“We will present six short plays and some of the questions you may ask yourself are: 

“Why is Jane suddenly so honest?

“What did happen on December 9. Will Tiffany be promoted? Will Mags eventually find love?

“Can lost love be re-kindled? What do grandparents get up to when they’re babysitting?

For answers to these questions and more, come along to Muckross Schoolhouse on December 5, 6 and 7.”
