A Killarney soprano may not have the physical audiences right now but that  didn't stop her creative edge as today she releases her latest single.

'Ave Maria' (Caccini), Mary Culloty O'Sullivan's new single, comes with a twist as it has a new modern arrangement!

Everyone can hear it on her Facebook/YouTube Page and it will also be available to download from marycullotyosullivan.bandcamp.com for free.

"I want people to enjoy it, download it, and send it to friends and family home and abroad for Christmas!," Mary told the Killarney Advertiser this week.

And instead of travelling and meeting many fans, Mary has had to revert to online concerts.

Upcoming dates include Seattle (Irish Network) on Sunday, December 6 at 10pm, New York (Buffaloirishcenter) on Friday 11 at 9pm, Friday, December 18 in Brighton Unitarian Church at 1pm, and Sunday, December 20 at 8pm, for the Kerry Association London.

"All these performances can be viewed live on my Facebook page: Mary Culloty O’Sullivan. Also, Maire Logue from St Johns Theatre in Listowel has invited me to perform in the theatre and broadcast live. This will be confirmed on my Facebook page so keep an eye on it! My performances will be a selection of seasonal favourites, Irish and love songs so I would invite people to check my Facebook page and tune in on the night!"

Well-known Dalton’s Avenue woman Eileen Switzer has been named as the Honorary President of Killarney Valley Athletic Club in recognition of her work as a volunteer.

The club held its annual awards night on Friday night last.

As well as presenting awards to club members in recognition of their achievements at home and abroad they decided to honour Mrs Switzer for her “lifetime of volunteering to the community, to sport, to youth and for championing diversity and inclusion”.

“Eileen has been an advocate, a coach and an administrator in the sport of athletics for over 60 years in the town of Killarney, Kerry and beyond,” said club chair Jerry Griffin.

Eileen and her husband Frank have dedicated their lives to the community games and athletics in the greater Killarney area.

“I enjoy, but I don’t like, all the limelight,” she told the Killarney Advertiser.

“I like to watch newcomers as they come up through the ranks, many of the Community Games people of the past are now running the committee.”

In a life time dedicated to volunteerism in Killarney Eileen has helped sports like golf, pitch and putt and badminton grow.  She was also heavily involved in the local Irish dancing scene and remains a great supporter of Kerry Parents and Friends.
