VALENTINE'S DAY may still be on everybody's mind but that's not the case amongst the hardworking committee of the St Patrick's Day committee, who have been hard at work since last September to ensure that this year's parade and festival is bigger and better in every way.

The committee comprises of hardworking individuals/volunteers who are all giving up their free time to help make the festival a truly unique and enjoyable experience for you!

As the newly appointed creative director of the St Patrick’s Day parade in Killarney, I see all sorts of clubs, organisations and societies getting ready to display their wonderful talents. The Fiona Crowley Stage School members have changed from elves at Christmas to leprechauns for St Patrick’s Day in one fell swoop!

Our students just love getting out there for any event! There is a wonderful sense of camaraderie and pride in our stage school to walk as a team, as all ages from 5-18 years old join forces to make this year’s parade bigger and better!

The students simply love dressing up and just being a part of the wonderful occasion that is St Patrick's Day in Killarney, with local people, local clubs and organisations getting a chance to show pride in their community. We love it in the Fiona Crowley Stage School.

As the theme this year is diversity, the committee are looking forward to seeing the creativity again that was so evident last year.

Whatever effort is made by any club or society will be greatly appreciated. Once every participant enjoys the experience in every way that will be a success for all of us on the committee! We can't wait.

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!”
