Organisers of Kerry’s longest established classic car run have announced a few changes to this year’s event.

The 43rd Ring of Kerry Veteran Vintage and Classic Car Run (KVVCCC) will take place on May 21 and 22.

While scaled back events did run during the pandemic, this year’s run will mark the return to the previous two-day format.

This year’s Ring of Kerry Run will depart from the Ballygarry Estate Hotel and Spa in Tralee at around 11am on May 21. The last time it ran in 2019, the run started from the Gleneagle Hotel.

The cars will pass through Killarney around 12 noon as they make their way to an overnight halt in Waterville via Moll’s Gap.

On Saturday the 120 or so drivers will stop off at the Red Fox near Caragh Lake before making their own way home from there.

“This idea came about from talking to members and non-members alike over the last two years. Some prefer a day run, some an overnight stay, we feel this will cater for both groups,” Kingdom Veteran Vintage and Classic Car Run club secretary, Garret Foley, said.

This Culture Night, Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh will present an hour-long live music and arts programme from Dún Lúiche in the heart of the Donegal Gaeltacht at 7pm on RTÉ One and RTÉ Player.  

Actress and singer Jessie Buckley has been added to the list of stellar musicians who will perform with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra on the night. Jessie will perform a special rendition of a Sinéad O’Connor song in tribute to the late artist. 

Jessie commented: “I am very honoured to return to Culture Night 2023 to remember Sinéad O Connor with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra. Sinéad was such a huge influence on so many women in Ireland and across the world, her courage, her mind, her politics and her intense beauty and soul. She was a warrior to humanity. I remember hearing her for the first time and feeling her uncompromising need to connect and affect. Recognising what couldn’t be said and speaking it out loud. I am so grateful for all her fire and all her love. It is such a privilege to return to Ireland for RTÉ Culture Night in Donegal to sing a song of gratitude for Sinéad and her family and friends.” 

Other artists performing with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra include The Murder Capital, R&B singer and 2FM Rising star Aby Coulibaly and Irish-based Ukrainian musician Olesya Zdorovetska.

The revealing of the preferred route corridor for the construction of the new Killarney to Farranfore road has been delayed – again.

Four potential routes for the N22 Farranfore-Killarney project were identified and were put out to public consultation in May 2021. These have now been whittled down to just one.

It was previously promised that the preferred route would be published late last year.

This dragged on in to the Spring and there is still no sigh of the preferred route being revealed.

A recent Kerry County Council meeting a council official explained that there are further funding requirements to allow the council complete various reports and investigations required before the road can move to its next phase.
