Their team endeavours to provide adult learners with a supportive caring environment which will enable them to achieve their full potential.

“The Killarney VTOS vision of education has evolved since our commencement in 1993," Mary A. O’Connor told the Killarney Advertiser.

"At the core of Killarney VTOS has been the broad understanding of education being a lifelong instrumental life skill. Central to this is the learners’ well-being, enabling him/her to develop, grow and commence their journey either into employment and/or further education. Learners leave Killarney VTOS prepared and equipped with self-awareness, self-knowledge and a relevant skillset to competently enter the world of work or progress to further education and training.”

The QQI/ICDL certificates that the learners achieve through the VTOS programmes are proof of their commitment, determination, hard work and perseverance. Killarney VTOS believe that the centre plays a vital role in the promotion of positive mental health and they are committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for building life skills and resilience amongst our learners.

Their programmes include Information and Communication Technology Skills - QQI Level 3 and 4, and Employment Skills - QQI Level 5.

Modules include; Communications, Work Experience, Payroll ICDL/Advanced ICDL, Expert ICDL standard, Manual Handling, Fire Safety Training, and First Aid.

“If you decide to join our Killarney VTOS programme, we hope that your time with us will be enjoyable and rewarding, leading you to either return to the workforce or progress to further education and training and beyond.”

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
