500 people from across the county heard about all the latest trends in nutrition, fitness and style tips on Thursday last at the Dawn Milk and National Dairy Council Ladies Lifestyle Evening.
Held in the INEC Killarney, the evening was a fantastic success raising €7,000 for the Donal Walsh Livelife Foundation and the Ian O’Connell Trust.
On arrival ladies were welcomed with a cookies and milk reception, and also received a goody bag on the night. The evening also included a fantastic raffle with some amazing prizes including a VIP Day at the Dawn Milk Ladies Day at the Killarney Races on Thursday, July 18, and two tickets to the Spice Girls concert in Croke Park in Dublin this summer.
The event commenced with advice on how to ‘Shape Up Your Nutrition’ with well-known dietitian and author Paula Mee, who sifted through the jargon and gave the audience practical tips and advice that works. One of Ireland’s most successful personal trainers and health blogger Nathalie Lennon gave lots of fitness and well-being advice. Nathalie also demonstrated exercises that could be completed at home with the assistance of MC Alan Finn of Radio Kerry.
Following the interval, style queen Celia Holman Lee revealed all her secrets in a Beauty and Lifestyle Q&A with MC Alan Finn. Celia also showcased a fabulous style segment with fashion from local Killarney boutiques MacBees, Scarlett Boutique and Weardrobe.
“We would like to thank everyone who attended the Ladies Lifestyle Evening and supported our two charities,” John O’Sullivan, General Manager, Dawn Milk said.
“The evening was a great success with lots of advice and tips from our guest speakers Paula Mee, Nathalie Lennon and Celia Holman Lee.”

This is bigger than the county final itself – with the main prize on offer being bragging rights in the town.

After an unprecedented run of events during this year’s Kerry Senior Football championship Killarney’s two biggest clubs, Dr Crokes and Killarney Legion are set to face off in a relegation battle that is sure to divide the town.

In sporting terms, the outcome of the big game, set for December 5, is simple enough. The winner stays in the Senior Championship next season and the losers will have to play in the Intermediate Championship.

Fans of the black and amber or the green and white face an anxious week. Winning the county title is one thing – consigning your cross town rivals to second division football in football is altogether a bigger prize.

Senior officials from both clubs are being very guarded on a potential outcome as both sides know the significance of this play off.

“It is a pity that two Killarney clubs, with a long tradition of playing football in the top tier, find themselves in the position of having to play off to avoid relegation,” Matt O’Neill, Cathaoirleach of Dr Crokes, told the Killarney Advertiser.

“Both teams will fight tooth and nail to stay in the senior ranks. I am confident that on Sunday week our lads will do themselves and the club proud, as always, and give their all in the quest to keep the black and amber to the fore.”

Crokes are based off the Lewis Road with Legion a short distance away on the other side of the bypass.

“Everyone has an opinion on this,” Legion PRO, Elaine O’Donoghue, told the Killarney Advertiser. “Both sides will be nervous – may the best team win. There are a lot of questions, are the Crokes suffering after defeat to Kerins O’Rahillys [in the semi-final]? Are our lads suffering after losing to St Brendan’s for the third year in a row?”

Every football fan will be keeping a close eye on next weekend’s Intermediate County Final too which takes place on December 4.

The winners of the match between Beaufort and Tralee side Na Gael will be automatically promoted to replace the losers of the Killarney play-off in the Senior Championship next season.

Should Beaufort prevail, a (relatively) local team could replace a town team in the top flight.

The popularity of handball as one of the fastest growing sports in Kerry is set to continue in the East Kerry region with the continued development of Spa/Killarney Handball Club.

On Monday night the progressive club hosts a Beginners and Advanced League at their magnificent indoor facility located at the Spa GAA grounds in Killarney. The club boasts two state-of-the-art indoor handball walls which were designed and built by local player and sportsman Mike Casey. It was opened in May 2018.

“On Monday night the games will tip off at 7pm with 11 players in the Advanced League and seven in the Beginners League. The format of the competition will see quarter finals in the first round progressing to overall winners on the night. It promises to be a great night of exciting handball and we welcome spectators,” said Eoin O’Donoghue, secretary of the club.

Competitors taking part in the Beginners League are Sheila Kelliher, Elena O’Donoghue, Niamh Faulds, Rosin King, Brid Horgan, Neill Horgan and Sinead Moriarty.

Players signed up for the Advanced League include Aoife Walsh, John Daniel Cronin, Eoin O’Donoghue, Kieran O’Brien, Brendan O’Donoghue, Michael Clifford, Evan Enright, Eoghan Daly, Brian McEvoy, Jerry Cronin and Maggie Quirke.

One player set to receive a warm welcome will be Brendan O’Donoghue. At the 2019 All-Ireland Hardball championships in Mayo, Brendan became the first Spa/Killarney man to win an All-Ireland Handball medal. He achieved this unique and much publicised honour in the highly ranked Master’s 55 B final.
