Fifteen Munster men weren’t the only winners when they famously beat South Africa in a rugby match at Páirc Uí Chaoimh at the weekend - as a Killarney musician's online video went viral with over 250k views!

Internationally-acclaimed accordion player Liam O’Connor, entertained the sell-out crowd at the clash and a video of that performance subsequently went viral on TikTok and Facebook.

In the video he can be seen in the backroom after the match playing the 'Fields of Anthenry' and the Cranberries 'Zoombie' and lies down on the floor for the craic while the team shower him with their energy drinks.

PADDY CASEY

Meanwhile, the much in-demand musician has announced that Irish multi-platinum album-seller Paddy Casey has been added to the bill for the annual concert at St Brendan’s College, Killarney on Thursday, December 1 at 8pm where the bill already includes legendary hurling manager Brian Cody, plus O’Connor himself and his family band.

“That we can attract musicians of the calibre of Paddy Casey shows how much the St Brendan’s show has grown in stature over the years," Liam said.

"Paddy has recently released a new album 'Turn This Ship Around' and of course fans will also expect him to give us his hits ‘Saints and Sinners’ and ‘The Lucky One’. It’s shaping up like some show already!”

Tickets for the St Brendan’s College concert are available from ticketstop.ie.

Jumpers have helped to raise almost €10k so far – but now it’s a very special jersey which could drive the fundraising numbers up!

A Kerry football jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team is up for grabs via a fundraising link once a donation is made to the Presents for Palliative fundraiser.

On Friday eight local schools including Holy Cross Mercy, Killarney Community College, Presentation Monastery, Lissivigeen, St Brendan’s College, St Brigid’s, St Francis Special School, and St Oliver’s
swapped their uniforms for their most colourful festive gear with funds going to help the amazing services in the Palliative Care Unit/Kerry Hospice Foundation.

“The day took place across the schools involved last Friday (December 2) and looks like it has been a success,” teacher Elaine Moynihan from St Brendan’s College told the Killarney Advertiser.

“The donations from the schools are still being counted but students look to be on their way towards making their goal of €10k.”

The iDonate ‘Fundraising For Kerry Hospice Foundation’ has been very helpful in this regard, she added.

“Anyone who donates via the link and leaves their name will be in with a chance to win a Kerry jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team which will be presented to them before Christmas by a couple of members of the team.

“This was organised by the students involved in the fundraiser as a way to say thanks, and give back, to the members of the community who have gotten involved in the event – the link is live until December 18 and the draw will be made the following day.”
