Killarney Rotary Club will hold their Annual Wine and Art Night in aid of local communities and charities on Wednesday November 29 in the Great Southern Killarney.

The Killarney Rotary Club Wine and Art Night is run in conjunction with Daly’s SuperValu and Killarney Brewing & Distilling Company. This year Killarney Credit Union have also become involved as sponsors of the event. The event begins at 7.15pm and Patrons can view and buy Art and Crafts from local artist’s around Kerry and further afield.

Wine, Beer AND Cheese tasting opportunities will be available on the night. All proceeds raised from the evening will go to local charities and community projects. Tickets are now available at a cost of €25. For further details contact killarneyrotaryclub@gmail.com.

Now in its 20th year, the Rotary Club’s Annual Wine and Art night remains one of the highlights of the Killarney social calendar with hundreds expected to attend on the night. President of Killarney Rotary Club, Barry Murphy said “Hopefully this year will be another huge success and all the beneficiaries will benefit. This event supports a lot of local groups to carry out projects they couldn't otherwise proceed with."

This year’s beneficiaries are Anabla National School, Coolick National School, Faha National School, Knockanes National School, Tiernaboul National School, Loreto National School, Gaelscoil Faithleann, The Killarney Cardiac Response, Castleisland Day-care Centre, Kerry Stars, Killarney Cougars Basketball Club, and the Irish Pilgrimage Trust.

There will also be a raffle in aid of the Irish Pilgrimage Trust on the night. The Irish Pilgrimage Trust is a group that brings children and young people with special needs on a week-long Pilgrimage holiday to Lourdes every Easter.

Many of the schools applied for funding through the Wine and Art event as they have projects they wish to complete on the school premises. Principal of Coolick National School, Gearóid O Sullivan said "We are delighted to be a beneficiary this year in the Killarney Rotary Club's annual Wine and Art night. We will use this funding for the modernisation of our classrooms to provide child-friendly, full of colour, atmospheric learning zones for the children."
30% of any sale goes to the fundraiser and the remaining 70% goes to the artist. Local Killarney Artist Betty Rohan (Neeson) plans on exhibiting her art at the Killarney Rotary Club Annual Wine and Art Evening. Betty Rohan usually works in oil and watercolours and Exhibitions of her work range through Ireland, New York & Chicago. Artist Betty Rohan said “The Killarney Rotary Club Wine and Art Evening is a great Killarney night. A gathering of creatives and like-minded people who love the buzz and entertainment of a fantastic local night."

Entertainment will also be provided by well-known Kerry musician Mike Neeson in the lobby. Mike Neeson who has been playing music in Killarney for over 55 years, will entertain the crowd with some 60’s tunes. Mike Neeson encouraged Patrons to attend by saying, “It’s a brilliant charity event, in the month of November where nothing else is happening, so why not come along."

There will also be an auction later in the evening for various paintings from exhibiting artists on the night who have donated their pieces. 100% of any monies raised in this auction will go to this Rotary Club fundraiser. The aim of the Rotary Club is to bring together people across generations who wish to create lasting change in the world, in their communities, and in themselves.

Gleeson Dental, located on St Anthony’s Place, is now offering facial aesthetics.

It is the latest offering from the town centre practice.

Dr Susan Gleeson graduated as a general dental surgeon 27 years ago.

She previously worked in England and Cork before returning home to Killarney in 2009 to take over her father’s dental practice with her sister Katie.

“More recently, I decided to pursue my keen interest in facial aesthetics. Hence, I embarked on an intensive training course,” she told the Killareny Advertiser.
“This mentorship is under the guidance of Dr Sheila Li, a Harley Street based dentist with over 10 years’ experience in facial aesthetics. Every year following an interview process, Sheila takes on six trainees and I was lucky enough to get this amazing training opportunity.”
The course is a year-long process involving in-depth learning and hands-on clinical training days in Dr Sheila’s Harley Street clinic.
The course, also, extends to treatment planning cases with Dr Sheila, thus allowing access to her vast knowledge when planning treatments for Dr Gleeson’s patients.
“Therefore, I am now able to offer a vast array of facial aesthetic treatments at Gleeson Dental. These treatments include the use of Botox to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition to this, Botox has a wide range of additional applications, including the treatment of tooth grinding, headaches, gummy smiles, neck bands and excessive underarm sweating,” she added.
Dermal filler treatments are, also, available to treat issues related to volume loss while skin booster treatments such as Sunekos and Profhilo can be used to regenerate and rehydrate tired looking skin.
Facial aesthetics may conjure up images of over-filled expressionless people but Susan hopes to change people’s view of it.

With properties both for rent and for sale in short supply, prices in the Killarney area have remained strong.

In fact, houses with the V93 eircode were, once again, the most expensive homes in Kerry over the past 12 months according to data published by the CSO Residential Property Price Index. The report shows that in the year to December 2023, the average cost of buying a home in Kerry was €242,000 up 5% from the previous year’s figure of €230,000
Nationally that figure now stands at €327,000.
The average house price within the V93 eircode region was €284,000, 17% approx. above the average price for a home within the county.
With supply levels at an all time low and with very little new construction in the pipeline, there is little sign of this changing in the immediate term.

Commenting on the market, Ted Healy of DNG, has expressed concern with the low volume of properties available for sale at present.
‘We have lots of interested buyers seeking property in the Killarney area but unfortunately, we cannot satisfy the demand at present. The past 12 months has seen us securing sales in record time for record levels.”

DNG Ted Healy will be launching a new development of townhouses in the Woodlawn area to the market in the coming months and report that demand is exceptionally high.
The expect these properties to sell out in record time.
And with construction due to commence shortly on another scheme of detached houses on Muckross Road, it is looking like a busy year ahead.
However, this will not be enough to satisfy the demand at present. Properties within the V93 area are highly sought after and in very short supply, resulting in strong prices being achieved.
So is now a good time to sell your property? Yes, according to DNG Ted Healy who is actively seeking properties for sale to satisfy their ever expanding list of buyers.
