Manor West Retail Park, the premier retail destination in the South West of Ireland marks its 20th anniversary today (Saturday).

Home to popular retailers including TK Maxx, Next, Lifestyle, Woodies, Harvey Norman and many more, it has much to celebrate as it reflects on the past 20 years and looks towards the future. With lots of exciting developments underway, including the creation of over 100 new jobs with the opening of The Range yesterday (Friday), and with JYSK and MaxiZoo opening soon after, Manor West Retail Park continues to thrive as one of Munster's premier retail destinations.

Employing over 700 people, Manor West Retail Park has played a vital role in Tralee and surrounding towns and villages, not only as a retail destination for consumers and by providing employment opportunities, but also as a real community hub. For the past 20 years, Manor West Retail Park has really been at the heart of this community from its food and craft fairs, providing entrepreneurs with a fantastic platform to showcase their wonderful products to their charity showcase days to help raise awareness and funds for much loved local charities.

The growth of Manor West through these difficult times to nearly 100% capacity is a testament to centre manager Derek Rusk, who has been at the helm of the organisation since it first opened its doors in 2001.

“It’s hard to believe that 20 years have passed since the doors of Manor West opened here in Tralee," Derek Rusk said.

"As we celebrate this milestone, we also look forward to the future with new tenants and 100 new jobs for Tralee, as well as new and exciting shopping experiences for the people of Kerry and beyond. We are very grateful for the continued support of customers throughout the past 20 years and in particular through the difficult COVID period. Over the years, Manor West has been a key driver in employment but also in creating a sense of community and we are very proud of the vibrant retail destination that stands in front of us today. We are looking forward to the next 20 years and the exciting times ahead.”

What do roses, wrens, King Puck, fairies and Santa Claus have in common? Well, all now feature in a new children’s book co-written by a mother and son.

The new illustrated poetry collection for children, ‘A Very Kerry Year’, by Killorglin mother and son, Jacinta and Conor Browne, has been published just in time for Christmas.

And all proceeds will be donated to Comfort for Chemo, an organisation whose mission it is to build and equip a chemotherapy unit for the people of Kerry.

The charity is close to the young author’s heart as Conor himself was undergoing cancer treatment while writing this book.

With original poetry by the mother and son, the book also has another separate family connection as the talented illustrators are local artists, father-daughter duo Con and Rochelle Lucey, with each page awash with colour and beautiful drawings.

“I know first-hand how important it is to have a comfortable environment while receiving chemotherapy,” Conor said.

‘A Very Kerry Year’ is currently available for €12 from The Crystal Cave and the Reeks District Tourist Office in Killorglin and will soon be available in many more outlets throughout the county.
