A local hotel is celebrating this week after it was announced the winner of the 2021 Health and Safety Excellence Award, Hotel and Leisure, at the annual awards hosted by Business River Magazine, the foremost H&S award platform in Ireland.

This is the second significant award to be won by Ireland’s largest regional hotel group in the last three months, as Muckross Park Hotel and The iNUA Collection also won the Excellence in Sustainability award at the Facility Management Awards 2021 at the end of April, the most prestigious awards of their kind in the country.

Both awards are judged by independent panels of leading, industry-specific professionals, with rigorous criteria.

“These two wins are a tremendous achievement for The iNUA Collection," Group Operations Director of The iNUA Collection, Chris Austin, said. "Each award came with some very serious competition. These two major awards so far this year are great recognition for all the hard work and effort put into these crucial areas by our teams across our nine properties. The 2021 Health and Safety Excellence Award, Hotel and Leisure, is a huge achievement for the group and super recognition of our Health and Safety programmes. Special thanks and congratulations to Andrew Mullen, Group Facilities Manager at The iNUA Collection, Rafal Lazarz, Muckross Park Hotel maintenance manager, all the group’s maintenance managers and the H&S representatives across the group.”

The Excellence in Sustainability award The iNUA Collection won at the Facility Management Awards 2021 at the end of April recognises an outstanding sustainability initiative executed by an FM professional, team or organisation over the past 12 months.

“A sincere vote of thanks to Rafal Lazarz, maintenance manager, Muckross Park Hotel and all the hotel maintenance managers and their teams for driving sustainability across the group hotels and thank you to the GMs and hotel managers for their continued support and commitment to the programme."

Killarney native Patrick O’Sullivan Greene will launch his second book in the Great Southern Killarney on December 2.

O’Sullivan Greene explains Éamon de Valera’s mission to gain recognition for the newly formed Irish republic in New York in 1919 in his latest book ‘Revolution at the Waldorf: America and the Irish War of Independence’.

Without American recognition and funding the young Irish Government was sure to fail against the might of the British Empire and the book tells the story of how de Valera and Ireland-based Michael Collins – much to the defiance of the British authorities at Dublin Castle – got the new State off the ground.

O’Sullivan grew up in New Street and is now based in Beaufort after a career in finance took him all over the world including Dublin, London, New York and France.

“Killarney is the natural place for me to launch the book,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“There will be an interesting mix of people there.”

O’Sullivan Greene published his first book, ‘Crowdfunding the Revolution: The First Dáil Loan and the Battle for Irish Independence’, in 2020.
