An online cookery show presented by Killarney celebrity chef Paul Treyvaud has reached over 1.4 million people.

Like many more in his profession, he decided to broadcast the show live on his Facebook feed, mainly as a bit of fun and to kill the boredom during the current partial lock down.

Paul, who runs his eponymous restaurant on High St. was forced to close his premises earlier this week with the loss of eight jobs.

He took the action before the Government announced that social distancing measures were to be put in place making it almost impossible to run a restaurant.

Shortly after informing his staff, he took to social media and told his thousands of followers that he would continue to pay his staff until March 30 - despite the doors being closed. This resulted in a massive wave of support with many commentators saying they will come to Killarney and support him when he re-opens.

Treyvaud was so inspired by the kind words that he decided to run ‘Cooking with the Treyvauds’ live demonstrations on his Facebook page.

A day before each broadcast he posts a list of all the ingredients needed for his next show. Earlier in the day, he explains the necessary preparations needed before announcing the actual time of the next live broadcast.

One of his sons, Sean, operates the camera while his second son Dylan is the 'sous chef.

“It started as a bit of fun to kill the boredom,” he told the Killarney Advertiser. “I have people tuning in from New York, Florida and Australia - it is nuts. The last show had a reach of 1.4 million views. This will keep Killarney on the map when we get out of this and people will come to my restaurant and other peoples' restaurants.”

Killarney Advertiser readers can tune into the next show on: Facebook: OfficialPaulTreyvaud.

Ian O’Connell said he is delighted with the messages of support following his first broadcast as a presenter on Radio Kerry this week.

The well-known and popular Killarney man was left with life-changing injuries after falling from his bike in Killarney National Park in 2017.

Since the accident he has been a champion for the less fortunate under his mantra: “If you can’t stand up – standout”.

This was the inspiration behind his brand new radio show which aired for the first time on Wednesday evening.

‘Stand Out with Ian O’Connell’ will feature interviews with people who have overcome great adversary to reach even greater heights.

His first guest was fellow Killarney man Jordan Lee. The Paralympian represented Ireland in the Tokyo Olympics this summer.

“I was used to being in the studio from people interviewing me, but this time I turned the table,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“It was great to have Jordan on, two Killarney men! I really enjoyed it, it got a massive reaction and I got loads of emails and messages afterwards and into Thursday morning.”

Ian will reveal his guest for the show on the previous Monday through various social media channels.
