Members of the public are invited to visit the Gleneagle Hotel car park from 10am to 2pm where volunteers will have a range of equipment on display.
Highlights include the organisation’s new inflatable rescue craft and and demonstrations of how the equipment works.
“If you are interested in learning more about the club, training, or even for a chat, then please join us on the day,” said Killarney Water Rescue’s Michael Mac Sweeney.
“The club has at least one training session a month where we run through the topography of the waterways, coxswain skills, diver coxswain skills, radio skills, ropework, towing, search, and swift water techniques.”

The night featured different exhibitions about Killarney Lions Club activities such as the Annual Christmas Food Appeal and the Kerry Clubs Fair.

“It was great that people made the effort to come and find out more what Killarney Lions Club does, despite the weather on the night. We are a voluntary group so community support is vital for activities such as our Christmas Food Appeal which will kick off very soon.”
