INDEPENDENT KERRY TD Michael Healy-Rae will be like the fabled kid in a candy store when he performs the official launch of Aunty Nellie’s Sweetshop this month.

In a change of pace from the cut and thrust of Dáil Éireann, the Kilgarvan politician will be showing off his sweeter side when he cuts the tape on the popular Killarney shop on Sunday, August 28.

Aunty Nellie’s opened its doors earlier this year creating five new full and part-time jobs, and has proven to be a great addition to shopping in Killarney.

The “Secret Party” on August 28 aims to give a little something back to the local community after a successful first few months.

“This is an invitation to everyone to come along on the day and to join our celebration, it has been a busy few months for us so this is our opportunity to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported us,” store manager PJ O’Sullivan said.

PJ and the team are hoping to treat a few new friends on the day also. “If you haven’t had a chance to visit us yet we would love to see you. There will be lots going on for all the family, and plenty of free samples too,” he said.

The official opening takes place with Deputy Michael Healy Rae at 2pm, but the fun family party will go on all day with entertainment from DJ Liam O’Riordan, face painting and balloons for the children, and some great prizes for kids of all ages up for grabs. The team at Aunty Nellie’s also have a lot of great secret surprises lined up on the day to ensure the party is a sweet success including their own Minion ready to have fun with everyone.

In addition to the cutting of the ribbon by Michael Healy Rae Sunday, August 28, will see the launch of Aunty Nellie’s new loyalty card.

The big launch day will allow Aunty Nellie’s to introduce the huge range of treats available in store including the hugely popular Katie’s Handmade Irish Chocolates, which have gone down a storm with locals and visitors alike. Aunty Nellie’s stocks an unbeatable range of sweets, artisan handmade ice cream from Featherbed Farm and American candies including Day’s sodas, Reeses and Hersheys. Aunty Nellie’s has perfect gifts with hampers which are created for you from retro to your favourite treats, cake plates, cone trees and gift vouchers.

Showing its more romantic side Aunty Nellie’s wedding favours and candy carts have already made dozens of Big Days in the Kingdom just a little bit sweeter.

The Secret Aunty Nellie’s party will kick off at the store in 1 Kenmare Place, Killarney, from 1pm; call instore or check out their Facebook page @AuntyNellies for all the up-to-date developments ahead of the big day.

While Killarney made it through to the last five, in the end it was Waterford City which claimed the overall title of Best Place to Live in Ireland 2021.

While the city was the unanimous choice of the judging panel it had to beat off stiff competition from Killarney and three other shortlisted locations: Clonakilty, Co Cork, Galway city and the village of Glaslough in Co Monaghan.

Among the things which impressed the judges about Waterford were its beautiful buildings, its liveability, its pedestrian friendly public space, its weather, and its easy access to the Comeragh Mountains and the Copper Coast.

The Chair of the judging panel Conor Goodman congratulated Killarney on its fine showing in the competition.

“Given the level of entries and the extremely high standard of those entries, making it into the Best 5 Places to Live in Ireland really is a wonderful achievement which I’m sure everyone in Killarney and Kerry is really proud of. We were delighted with the level of interest in the competition and would like to thank everyone who nominated a place or who engaged with us on it.”

The Irish Times Best Place to Live in Ireland contest, which is supported by Randox Health, began in June.

In total 470 locations were nominated by more than 2,400 people from all 32 counties for the title of ‘Best Place to Live in Ireland 2021’.
