The manager of The Lir Cafe in Killarney Alan Oliver is partnering up with Frank Murphy the CEO of Monex to host their annual charitable coffee morning at The Lir Café.

And all are welcome to come along and support the event on Thursday, March 7, from 10am until 2pm. There will be tea, coffee and refreshments including a miniature buffet free of charge and people can make a donation to charity.

This year they will be supporting Down Syndrome Kerry in raising some much-needed funds to assist people in Kerry with the condition.

“Frank and his company Monex have been so generous to match whatever amount we raise for Down Syndrome Kerry,” Alan told The Killarney Advertiser this week.

Madeleine Doyle, PRO with Down Syndrome Kerry said this week that they are delighted to have been chosen as the charity this year.

“The charity is not government funded so events like this raise much needed funds to help people with Down Syndrome by providing them with speech therapy classes and occupational therapy classes,” she told the Killarney Advertiser.

Fans of the ice will be disappointed to hear that Killarney on Ice will not return for a second year.

Following its huge popularity year on year since returning to Killarney in 2015, the promoters of Killarney on Ice are disappointed to confirm that they are unable to operate again this year.

Rising case numbers, uncertain COVID-19 restrictions, and insurance challenges have been the main drivers behind the decision not to open, according to the company.

As Kerry’s only festive ice rink, the facility has brought much fun and life to the town over the years, attracting thousands of people from all over the county, and indeed the whole country, with many families coming to stay overnight in Killarney and enjoying all that this great town has to offer.

As well as friends and families coming to skate, schools, youth clubs, sports teams and employees of local companies use the group booking discount rate to plan sessions on the ice, and Killarney on Ice would like to thank them all for their continuing loyalty.

“We sincerely hope to be back better and stronger in 2022, and we look forward to welcoming all of our valued customers,” Tim O’Donoghue, the promoter of the rink, told the Killarney Advertiser.

“In the meantime, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.”

The Government has approved 10 new posts for Kerry County Council to assist with the delivery of their social housing targets.

The news was announced today (Friday) as part of the Government’s new housing plan ‘Housing for All’ which commits to strengthening the capacity of Local Authorities to initiate, design, plan, develop and manage housing projects.

The plan acknowledges that this requires the resourcing of housing delivery teams and the posts being announced include a wide range of positions from engineers to quantity surveyors and architects with provision also made for the necessary administrative resources.

“I welcome this announcement by my Cabinet colleague Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage, Darragh O’Brien,” Minister Foley said.

“Housing is a key priority for Government and these new posts are an endorsement of the excellent work carried out by Kerry County Council and a deserved recognition of their continued commitment to providing social housing to all local communities across Kerry.”
