Killarney Legion are relaunching their weekly club lotto and have topped up their jackpot to a whopping €16,000 to kick start it!

The first draw takes place on Sunday July 5, and tickets are available online, here: www.cutt.ly/sy5EIUC or visit the Legion Facebook page.

Tickets can be got from the following also, Hegartys on Muckross Road, Centra the Reeks on Rock Road, Centra/Sheahans Muckross Road, Four Star Pizza and Healy's Newsagents on New Street.

The lotto is essential for the running of the club, along with main sponsor Randles.

With no income over the past four months, the club is appealing to all members to make an effort and to “refer a friend” online to be in with a chance to win the €16,000 jackpot.

“We are delighted to relaunch the club lotto," Club Chairman, Fergal Moynihan, said.

"We are calling on all members to support and promote the lotto as it really is the bread and butter of the club finances. Every business has gone through a tough time due to the recent pandemic and GAA clubs are no different. We are excited to get going again and look forward to a successful finish to 2020 on and off the field.”

Well-known Dalton’s Avenue woman Eileen Switzer has been named as the Honorary President of Killarney Valley Athletic Club in recognition of her work as a volunteer.

The club held its annual awards night on Friday night last.

As well as presenting awards to club members in recognition of their achievements at home and abroad they decided to honour Mrs Switzer for her “lifetime of volunteering to the community, to sport, to youth and for championing diversity and inclusion”.

“Eileen has been an advocate, a coach and an administrator in the sport of athletics for over 60 years in the town of Killarney, Kerry and beyond,” said club chair Jerry Griffin.

Eileen and her husband Frank have dedicated their lives to the community games and athletics in the greater Killarney area.

“I enjoy, but I don’t like, all the limelight,” she told the Killarney Advertiser.

“I like to watch newcomers as they come up through the ranks, many of the Community Games people of the past are now running the committee.”

In a life time dedicated to volunteerism in Killarney Eileen has helped sports like golf, pitch and putt and badminton grow.  She was also heavily involved in the local Irish dancing scene and remains a great supporter of Kerry Parents and Friends.
