The beauty of Muckross House was beamed into hundreds of thousands of homes across Ireland as part of RTÉ's Other Voices programme last night (Thursday).

The episode, which was the final one of the second ‘Courage’ series, was filmed recently in the Muckross House Drawing Room and featured Ireland’s best known and most loved alternative rock band Bell X1 joined by Dowry Strings.

“We were delighted to welcome the Other Voices production team and the talented performers Bell X1 and Dowry Strings to Muckross House for a magical show,” the Trustees of Muckross House General Manager Denis Reidy said. “It was an honour to host the second season finale of Other Voices ‘Courage’ and open up our beautiful Drawing Room with a special performance to everyone at home.”

Other Voices founder and director Philip King added that they are delighted to present this second season of Other Voices ‘Courage’ as part of the Government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This is about bringing people together through music, and recognising the essential and powerful contribution that artists continue to make to our lives. The Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht has played a leading and imaginative role in making it possible for our artists and crews to work together to create and present Other Voices ‘Courage’.” Anyone who missed it can catch it on the RTÉ Player.

The coveted KY-1 plate has been allocated to Adams of Tralee for the second year in a row.

The county’s Hyundai dealership secured the coveted plate as a result of the Hyundai Tucson topping the individual model sales charts for 2021.

Available in diesel, petrol and pug-in hybrid, the Tucson offers something for every motorists.

With the switch to full electric not far away, Adams of Tralee’s general manager Marcus O’Shea believes that hybrid offers the perfect transition from fossil fuelled-cars to electric.

“It is a steeping-stone towards full electric,” he told the Killarney Advertiser. “It reduces the range anxiety for those not ready for full electric and it gets people used to new ways – plugging in the car at night at home will become normal and hybrid is the first step.”

The Tucson range has a model to suit all tastes and budgets. As well as being available in petrol, diesel or hybrid, each power variant is also available as in entry-level, mid or high specification formats.

Nicole Coffey of Nicole’s Hair Salon on St Anne’s was inspired to run a fundraiser for a women’s refuge after hearing distressing stories from some of her clients.

On Saturday last she offered a wash and blow-dry to clients and rather than charging them for the her services her customers made a donation to Adapt Women’s Refuge in Tralee.

Nicole was inspired to run the charity day because a lot of her regular clients opened up to her while they were getting their hair done.

The timing of her charity day was poignant as it came just days after Ashling Murphy was murdered while out for a run in her own town of Tullamore.

“People open up while I do their hair, many of them would not know that there is a refuge in Kerry,” she told the Killarney Advertiser. “I have experience with clients who are struggling. I had this idea to create more awareness for Adapt.”

She raised €2,000 for Adapt and the cheque was handed over to the Tralee-based charity on Thursday night this week.

Such was the success of her charity day Nicole worked from 7am to 7pm and as well as cash donations customers also donated vouchers and care packs to the charity.
