Two events will run in the British capital and each has an Aghadoe native at the helm

The two London events also raise funds for Immigrant Counselling and Psychotherapy (ICAP) in London, a mental health charity serving the Irish community in the UK.
Liam Kearney is the chairman of the London organising committee and he is running one walk at the London Irish Rugby Club’s training ground in Hazelwood.
Tara Cronin, who during her term as secretary of the Kerry Association London was one of the founders of the London walk back in 2014. Noel O'Sullivan from Ballaugh is also on the Criklewood commitee.
She is now the fundraising and events manager with ICAP and she will take charge of the Cricklewood walk.
“We are delighted that the walks are back. After two years when we could not gather together to walk from the Darkness into the Light, this year we welcome you to join us at either of the two walks, Hazelwood or Cricklewood, at 4.15am,” said Liam.
“We will gather to remember all those that we have lost to suicide and hope that each of us by walking, running, hiking, swimming can be the power to be a light against the dark.”

Kerry take on Cork in the first round of the Munster Championship at Fitzgerald Stadium on Saturday.

This glamour tie always attracts a huge crowd and Cork fans will travel in their droves from the Rebel County.

As a result there will be parking restrictions and traffic disruptions in the town on Saturday afternoon.

“Please be aware that the town will be bustling with activity, and traffic congestion is expected. Some parking areas may reach capacity, so we recommend allowing extra time for your journey,” said a Garda spokesperson.

Parking will be available in the following areas near the stadium: New Street, The Glebe car park, Fair Hill car park, High Street, Rock Road car park and the Lewis Road car park.

Parking in the vicinity of Fitzgerald Stadium is reserved for residents with parking passes only.

Killarney For Palestine is raffling two tickets to a Taylor Swift concert in Edinburgh.

The group is raising funds for the Halaq family who are known to Kerry Friends of Palestine and who are currently displaced in tents in the Gaza Strip.

Their homes were destroyed in the city of Khan Younis by Israeli airstrikes.
