THAT seasonal sense of anticipation has been filling the town for the past week. The Christmas garlands are already festooning the streets and enchantment is already in the air as the countdown begins to the 2016 Christmas in Killarney Magic Parades.

The perfect way to kickstart the Christmas celebrations, the first of the Magic parades for this festive season will take place on Friday, November 25, when the streets of Killarney will be illuminated in fabulous festive fashion and will be filled with music, colour and a whopping 11 floats.

The Magic parades always offer a top-class night out for all the family, and the first of these, on November 25, will see the children’s parade commencing at 6pm and featuring Santa and his elves. The parade will, of course, culminate in the switching on of the town’s Christmas lights.

Santa Claus has confirmed that many of his friends will join him on the night including Minnie and Mickey Mouse as well as Frozen stars Anna, Elsa and Olaf. Not only that, but a host of famous Disney celebrities the parade will also be joined by children from local schools.

You’ll get a bird's eye view of Santa all along the parade route which takes in New Street on to Beech Road, Mission Road, then Main Street and back down New Street. If you miss Santa and his friends on the 25th don’t worry, there will be a Christmas parade on Saturday, December 3, December 10 and 17 at 6pm. “Christmas in Killarney is pleased to announce that 2016 will see the return of the New Year’s Eve parade on December 31, at 6pm,” said a spokesperson.

“When speaking to Santa he informed the Christmas in Killarney committee that there is still time to make the nice list if you are on your best behaviour for December and to make sure you post your letters in plenty of time.”

The coveted KY-1 plate has been allocated to Adams of Tralee for the second year in a row.

The county’s Hyundai dealership secured the coveted plate as a result of the Hyundai Tucson topping the individual model sales charts for 2021.

Available in diesel, petrol and pug-in hybrid, the Tucson offers something for every motorists.

With the switch to full electric not far away, Adams of Tralee’s general manager Marcus O’Shea believes that hybrid offers the perfect transition from fossil fuelled-cars to electric.

“It is a steeping-stone towards full electric,” he told the Killarney Advertiser. “It reduces the range anxiety for those not ready for full electric and it gets people used to new ways – plugging in the car at night at home will become normal and hybrid is the first step.”

The Tucson range has a model to suit all tastes and budgets. As well as being available in petrol, diesel or hybrid, each power variant is also available as in entry-level, mid or high specification formats.

Nicole Coffey of Nicole’s Hair Salon on St Anne’s was inspired to run a fundraiser for a women’s refuge after hearing distressing stories from some of her clients.

On Saturday last she offered a wash and blow-dry to clients and rather than charging them for the her services her customers made a donation to Adapt Women’s Refuge in Tralee.

Nicole was inspired to run the charity day because a lot of her regular clients opened up to her while they were getting their hair done.

The timing of her charity day was poignant as it came just days after Ashling Murphy was murdered while out for a run in her own town of Tullamore.

“People open up while I do their hair, many of them would not know that there is a refuge in Kerry,” she told the Killarney Advertiser. “I have experience with clients who are struggling. I had this idea to create more awareness for Adapt.”

She raised €2,000 for Adapt and the cheque was handed over to the Tralee-based charity on Thursday night this week.

Such was the success of her charity day Nicole worked from 7am to 7pm and as well as cash donations customers also donated vouchers and care packs to the charity.
