Helping others is what she does best so it's no surprise that Marie Carroll-O'Sullivan is once again fundraising for charity.

The local photographer, who has a popular monthly column ion the Killarney Advertiser, is a planning a fundraising photoshoot at the end of the month proceeds of which will go the hardworking Kerry Mountain Rescue Team.

The move follows on from a successful shoot before Christmas which raised €900 for the voluntary group who are currently building a new base in Killarney town.

"After COVID sabotaged my annual charity photoshoot fundraiser in 2021, it was great to see familiar faces through the door at the International Hotel pre-Christmas to raise €900 for Kerry Mountain Rescue," Marie said.

"For the previous eight years I have opted to fund the Jack & Jill foundation but seeing how hard the mountain rescue team have worked this past year, I felt it was time to keep the funding more local to Kerry."

Marie spoke with Mick Long, treasurer of the Kerry Mountain Rescue Team, and was informed that a plan is in place to extend their base which is located at Killarney Garda Station.

"The original shoot pre-Christmas sold out in one hour and three minutes so a repeat performance I think is a no brainer for these people who voluntarily work so hard to keep us all safe throughout the peaks of the Kingdom.

"The ever helpful Catriona and Tracy at the International Hotel have come on board yet again and given me an additional date later this month - Sunday, January 29. None of this could be achieved without my trusty admin lady ollette Clifford O'Shea who gives up her time annually to make things happen!"

The fee is €40 and all are welcome, not just families, she added.

"Bring your gal pals, your cousins or maybe you'd like a really nice generation photo. Two photos will be delivered digitally in high resolution within one week after the shoot."

Each time slot is a mere 10 minutes in and out, and bookings will be open via email only to thelittlememorygallery@gmail.com from Monday, January 16.
