Much-respected Killarney musician and entertainer Jack Patrick Healy will perform for some of the greatest names in the world of Formula 1 later this year.

The BWT Alpine Formula 1 team is hosting its Christmas Party - with over 13,000 people expected - on a yet-to-be-announced date at Silverstone Grand Prix track.

The team have asked Jack Patrick to perform and it'll be no ordinary Christmas party as guests will include drivers and officials from all Formula 1 Grand Prix teams. Sponsors, supports and race staff are all invited.

Jack Patrick, son of the 'Singing Jarvey' from the Gap of Dunloe, is best known for his performances in the residents’ bar in the Killarney Grand.

He has been living and playing in London for the last four years. Jack Patrick is a huge motor racing fan and spends a lot of time spectating at big and small events at Silverstone.

Through his motor racing contacts he was offered the BWT Alpine gig.

“This is going to be enormous, they will place a Grand Piano in the middle of the race track, I will be wearing a BWT alpine race suit and helmet while on stage,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

The BWT Alpine team is currently home to drivers like former World Champion Fernando Alonso and F1 race winner Estaban Ocon. Jack Patrick has also met recently crowned World F1 champion Max Verstappen.

Jumpers have helped to raise almost €10k so far – but now it’s a very special jersey which could drive the fundraising numbers up!

A Kerry football jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team is up for grabs via a fundraising link once a donation is made to the Presents for Palliative fundraiser.

On Friday eight local schools including Holy Cross Mercy, Killarney Community College, Presentation Monastery, Lissivigeen, St Brendan’s College, St Brigid’s, St Francis Special School, and St Oliver’s
swapped their uniforms for their most colourful festive gear with funds going to help the amazing services in the Palliative Care Unit/Kerry Hospice Foundation.

“The day took place across the schools involved last Friday (December 2) and looks like it has been a success,” teacher Elaine Moynihan from St Brendan’s College told the Killarney Advertiser.

“The donations from the schools are still being counted but students look to be on their way towards making their goal of €10k.”

The iDonate ‘Fundraising For Kerry Hospice Foundation’ has been very helpful in this regard, she added.

“Anyone who donates via the link and leaves their name will be in with a chance to win a Kerry jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team which will be presented to them before Christmas by a couple of members of the team.

“This was organised by the students involved in the fundraiser as a way to say thanks, and give back, to the members of the community who have gotten involved in the event – the link is live until December 18 and the draw will be made the following day.”
