Hundreds of thousands of homes have been hearing all about what one local hotel has to offer as they appeared on a national campaign on Virgin Media.

Killarney-based Cahernane House Hotel was beamed into homes across the country as part of Virgin Media’s €1 Million 'Backing Business' support fund TV campaign - which includes free on-air advertising including creative, production, profiles across its full schedule covering Virgin Media Channels One, Two and Three.

Cahernane, along with two other Irish businesses, featured on Virgin Media’s weekly 60” ad break campaign and were also promoted across Virgin Media’s official social media channels.

Championing staycations since recently reopening on June 29, Emer Corridan, General Manager of Cahernane House Hotel, said they are "thrilled" to be part of the TV stations support programme.

Like all other hotels, Cahernane Hotel closed its doors in March. The entire team have been welcoming guests back through their doors and are heavily promoting staycations as an option for this summer holiday period.

   “We are thrilled to be part of Virgin Media’s 'Backing Business' campaign," Emer said. "This platform really helps us to spread the word that we are open once again and are happy to meet our wonderful guests once more."

She added that Virgin Media is very pro-business and it’s wonderful to have them help to promote Cahernane House this summer.

"Now more than ever our industry needs Irish people to holiday at home and support Irish tourism. Our staycation offers provide people with a wonderful opportunity to explore and to rediscover Killarney and Kerry once again.”

For a chance to have your business features all business owners have to do is send in a short email, outlining who and where they are, some of their main products or services and how they have coped and reinvented themselves through the current crisis. The ideal way to do this is to take a short video by mobile phone including shots of the business premises. You can simply email submissions to backingbusiness@virginmedia.ie or WhatsApp them to 089 611 1111.

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!”
