Do you want to celebrate Ladies Day at Killarney Races in style this year? Café du Parc Killarney has the answer.

If you want to start the day off with panache, you can head over to Café du Parc for great bites, Rosé Flight or a cocktail and the chance to win prizes in their Best Dressed competition, all before you make your way to Ladies Day.

The Café du Parc exclusive Ladies Day Rosé pre-party will take place before the races kick off, giving you a chance to show off your outfit and even win a prize before Ladies Day officially begins.

The doors will be open from 11am, with the Best Dressed award being judged from midday and the winners announced at 1pm.

While you’re there, you can enjoy a cocktail to get yourself into the spirit of the occasion, or sit with the Café du Parc’s Rosé Flight, with four tasters of premium rosé wines. There will also be a sumptuous brunch menu on offer, so you can enjoy dishes like avocado toast, eggs benedict or chicken and waffles before you head over to the Races.

Judging for the Café du Parc Best Dressed will be taking place from midday, with the stylist and fashion designer Sinead Keary deciding upon the ultimate winners, with some fabulous prizes up for grabs. There will also be entertainment to get you into the spirit of the day. Dress code is Café Du Parc chic with a touch of Ladies Day dazzle but most importantly come in whatever makes you feel awesome (hats optional).

If you want to continue the party after the Races, you can head back to Café du Parc for light bites and a cocktail at the end of the day.

The prizes for Best Dressed are most definitely worth dusting off the fascinator.

Overall Prize: A Suite Stay in The Killarney Plaza Hotel & Spa, including two nights stay in a suite, cocktails and dinner in Café du Parc, a Signature Serail treatment for two people and brunch on both mornings
Second Place: A ‘Funky Brunch’ and bubbles for six people in Café du Parc
Third Place: Dinner and drinks for four people in O’Donoghue Public House

You can pop in for the Best Dressed on the day or if you like there is an option to purchase a ticket that includes Brunch, rosé flights and tickets to Ladies Day for €60.

Tributes have been paid to Marie Murphy of Aughacureen, who died in tragic circumstances on November 30.

Marie was a member of the well known Murphy business family in Killarney – her brother runs KWD Recycling and she was heavily involved in the business.

She was best known for involvement in the local GAA both as a county star and a member of Fossa GAA Club.

She was a third generation Kerry footballer, her grandfather Con and father John all played football for Kerry.

She was extremely proud of her niece Abbie, her brother Seán’s daughter, when she became the fourth generation Murphy to play for Kerry.

Marie played for Kerry in 1976 and re-joined Fossa GAA Club in 2010 when the ladies’ side of the club was re-formed.

She acted as a mentor for current group of ladies.

Back in 2019 when Fossa GAA Club published a book to mark its 50th anniversary she was one of the leading lights on that committee.

This year, when the club held its Night of Legends to raise funds for a new dressing room for the ladies’ club, Marie was one of the guests of honour at the INEC event and was interviewed on the stage in front of a capacity audience.

Only a few weeks ago she was one of the many club members who helped organise the Fossa Golf Classic and acted as official photographer for that event.

“The club is numb with sadness,” said Fossa GAA chairman Dermot Clifford. “She was a loyal member and very proud of the club. Our thoughts are with her family. A lovely, unassuming lady who will be sorely missed.”

Marie will be sadly missed by her brothers Con, Seamus and Seán, sisters-in-law Breda, Gennie and Anna, her nieces Shauna, Amy, Kate and Abigail, nephews John, Jack, Luke, aunties Mairead and Maura, cousins, relatives, neighbours and a large circle of friends.

She was laid to rest at Old Aghadoe Cemetery on Monday following Requiem Mass at The Prince of Peace Church, Fossa.

Kerry Airport is in line for nearly €1.5m in funding under the Regional Airports Programme 2021-2025.

All five regional airports in the country will share a total of €21,100,051 released under the scheme.

Kerry Airport will get €1,434,355 to put towards vital safety operations like air traffic control, fire services and security.

The CEO of Kerry Airport, John Mulhern, welcomed the funding.

“We are grateful to Minister Naughton, the Department of Transport and Kerry’s two Government TDs, Minister Norma Foley and Deputy Brendan Griffin for their continued support,” he said.

“The funding will help to ensure that Kerry Airport remains compliant with regulatory requirements in key areas, such as air traffic control, fire services and security.”

Funding this year for airports will total over €37 million building on the €161 million provided in unprecedented aviation supports during 2021.

“I welcome this funding which will deliver further vital financial supports to Kerry Airport with a particular focus on safety, security operations and air traffic control,” Minister Foley said.

“This funding reinforces the importance and value that Government places on the vital role of our regional airports and how connectivity directly supports tourism and enterprise in Kerry.”
