A multi-million euro marketing package for Killarney is set to be announced in the next week to 10 days the Killarney Advertiser can exclusively reveal. Last month Fáilte Ireland announced that it was to initiate a plan to re-brand Killarney as a "world class tourism destination".

Details of the overall scope of the project remain limited until the official announcement is made.

The National Tourism Development Authority is in the final stages of preparing a wide-ranging report on Killarney’s rebranding and the subsequent multi-million euro marketing and promotion package.

The Killarney Advertiser understands that the announcement is only a matter of days away and could be timed to coincide with the St Patrick’s Day celebrations in the town.

As far back as 2019, plans were put in place to establish Killarney as a gateway town for visitors exploring the Wild Atlantic Way.

However, with the devastating impact COVID-19 has had on the tourism markets this past year, this new roadmap will help in its future recovery.

“It is coming and it is going to be very positive for Killarney,” Mayor of Killarney Brendan Cronin told the Killarney Advertiser.

Meanwhile, several leading figures connected with Killarney tourism, including Mayor Cronin and Chamber President Niall Kelleher have dismissed reports that Killarney is set to lose its Wild Atlantic Way gateway status to Kinsale.

Further details of the gateway plan or a similar initiative will be included in the new report.

It’s back – and not before time – the hugely popular Killarney Rotary Club evening of Wine and Art will return this November.

The pandemic enforced its absence and now every effort is being made to make up for lost time.

Widely regarded as one of the social highlights of the year in Killarney, this year’s gathering will take place in the Great Southern Killarney on Wednesday, November 30, commencing at 7.15pm.

Tickets, which will be available at the door, are priced at €20 and all proceeds raised on the night will go to deserving local charities and community organisations.

Over the years the evening of wine and art has raised tens of thousands of Euro for great causes and the 2022 proceeds will be of enormous benefit to the chosen groups.

This year, once again, the event is being held in association with Daly’s SuperValu and supported by Killarney Brewing and Distilling Company.

Rotary Club President, Rayla Tadjimatova, has appealed to all artists who might like to showcase their work on the night to get in touch with club members, as soon as possible, to guarantee inclusion.

“We are reaching out not only to artists who have supported the event in the past but to any new artists who wish to take the opportunity to place their work in front of a very appreciative local audience of up to one thousand people on the night,” she said.

Those interested should email killarneyrotaryclub@gmail.com as soon as possible.
