A talented artist who uses a variety of mixed media and paint techniques is planning a one day exhibition in town next Month.

County Clare based artist, Carmel T. Madigan, will be hosting the exhibition and sale of her brand new artworks at The Brehon Hotel on Sunday, March 13 from 11am to 6pm.

Carmel is no stranger to Killarney and has held similar events here in town since 2006.

This time, she is unveiling almost 40 new works for the very first time to the public.

"COVID prevented me from hosting indoor exhibitions over the past while, so the only thing to do was to create new work to show as soon as the opportunity arose," she said.

Much of her new works are small to medium in size and, as always, they depict her sensory joy in nature, through the use of both mixed media and paint techniques.

Her work is included in the Office of Public Works collection, together with the Bank of Ireland Collection, the Waterford Municipal Art Collection, the Dromolond Castle Hotel collection and many more. Her work is also held in many private collections at home and abroad.

Passenger numbers on local link buses across Kerry have increased by 1727% from 2020 to 2023 according to local Green Party Candidate for Killarney Diarmaid Griffin.

This is the highest increase nationally and is due to the investment by the Department of Transport during this government term.

“This service was lacking in former times, especially in rural areas and is a welcome addition to the countryside and villages of Kerry.’ says Green Party Candidate for Killarney,” said Griffin.

“While in the past, a taxi was the only option for those not cycling or driving. Now a service to Killarney is available every Friday morning from my townland of Barleymount. This is just one example of the network of bus routes criss-crossing the county thanks to local link.”

“This project is a notable success as the figures show. Investment in public transport helps alleviate congestion, increases community cohesion and reduces rural isolation. This is all welcome news for the locality,”
