It's been tough for everyone this past year - especially musicians who have bourne the brunt with cancelled gigs and tours - however, one local band are ready to release new music. Brother sister duo Steph and Paul O'Sullivan from Ballydribbeen, who make up the band 'Greywind', will launch their latest track 'Am I Asleep?' on Friday, February 19.

Speaking to the Killarney Advertiser this week, Paul said that they are very excited as it's been a tough year for the music industry.

"We're insanely excited," Paul said.

"It's been a busy start to the New Year. It feels now like a fresh start."

The single was recorded early last year just before the pandemic kicked in with grammy nominated producer Romesh Dodangoda who has worked with British rock band 'Bring me the Horizon' who have just had a number one album on the Official Albums Chart in Ireland with their latest EP 'Post Human: Survival Horror'.

When restrictions lessened late last year the duo travelled to England where they recorded the video for their new single.

"We shot the video in London. We're so proud of this song and so excited for people to hear it."

Greywind's album ‘Afterthought’ reached 2m streams on global music platform Spotify which was featured in the Killarney Advertiser at the time, and Paul said that they have "locked in tour dates for later this year" but whether they go ahead "all depends on the restrictions at the time".

"We don't know if they'll be going ahead but we're doing a lot of live streams online as well."

Steph and Paul's talent is no surprise as their mom is well-known local soprano Mary Culloty O'Sullivan who has also released a music video for her recent single 'Ave Maria' (Caccini). It was filmed in Killarney and arranged and produced by Tony O’Flaherty of Sonas Studios, Killarney.

Kerry Recreation and Sports Partnership are calling on you, to get out and #BeActive as part of European Week of Sport 2021, which runs from September 23 to 30.

Sport Ireland, the national coordinating body for European Week of Sport in Ireland hope that this year’s event will inspire even more people than previous years and has funded multiple flagship as well as local events run by the Network of Local Sports Partnerships, including this ‘Family Street Orienteering Kerry’ event.

“This free event looks to offer everyone an opportunity the get out and be active and maybe try something new,” Gearóid O Doherty, the Coordinator of Kerry Recreation and Sports Partnership said. 

“Urban Orienteering is an activity that you can do on your own or with your family and friends. You get to challenge yourself a little and still go at a pace that suits you – and what a beautiful location to do it all in, Killarney town!

“With many people possibly new to the Kerry region, be that through work, college or otherwise, this is an ideal way to get involved in the community and explore the streets and lanes of Killarney in a fun and active way.”

The Kerry Orienteers Club have designed the courses for this event and are looking forward to the excitement of it all and helping those new to the sport to continue taking part in the months and years that follow.

“We know that, for a lot of people, this will be their first time trying orienteering, but they can rest assured, as we will be there to talk them through it and help them out if needed,” Brendan O’Brien from Kerry Orienteers said.

“If it is something they want to try again, we can signpost them to other events, both locally here in Kerry and indeed nationally. Orienteering is a fantastic sport that allows you to build your skills and confidence, with all events having a variety of routes to cater for all levels.”

To cater for physical distancing and government guidelines, there are several staggered start times for participants to choose from, beginning at 6pm and the last group heading off at 7.30pm. With free t-shirts for all who sign up and additional workshops onsite, from the likes of Leave No Trace Ireland, it is sure to be a fun and vibrant evening, all stemming from the start point at ANAM – Killarney’s Arts and Culture Centre.

Places are limited for this event. Free online registration is available and those looking to attend are encouraged to book their place early to avoid disappointment.
