A series of free fun events for children between 5 and 17 years of age have been organised for National Play Day which takes at a number of locations in the Gap of Dunloe area on Saturday.

The aim of National Play Day is to promote play opportunities for children and young people all across the country, with this year’s theme being Playful Communities.

The National Play Day grant scheme is one part of the wider Summer of Play campaign, a government-led initiative designed to remind everyone, young and old, of the fundamental importance of play.

In Kerry, events on 7, 8 and 9 July, are being organised by the Kerry Community Response Forum which is coordinating the supports for Ukrainian refugees in the county, but events are open to all children between 5 and 17 years.

The two Gap of Dunloe events take place at 10am and 1pm on Saturday.

Play sessions for those aged 5-12 will be a time for children to play nature-based games, create some nature crafts and explore at their own pace in a supportive natural space. The play sessions for those aged 12-17 and will be a time for participants to learn some basic bushcraft skills, connect through nature-based activities, and to have time to explore in the outdoors at their own pace. The sessions are delivered by forest therapy providers and take place outdoors in areas of woodland.

Funding of €3,000 has been provided from Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth for the National Play Day events in Kerry.

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
