A new Killarney business with a trendy vibe has not only created five jobs but is proving very popular amongst customers with their selection of gourmet hot chocolates and crêpes.

The Crêpe House Killarney in Old Market Lane opened just before the third lockdown was announced and although they've had to switch to a take away offering - it's become the go-to place especially for young people.

The new business is part of Jam Cafe, which reopened its doors in mid-October. The owners, who also run TOBA on High Street, saw an opportunity at the back of the Jam Cafe building to offer an alternative to customers.

"Before we opened Jam we pinpointed that part of the building could be used for something exciting," Darragh Walshe told the Killarney Advertiser this week. "It's been in the pipeline for months. We recognised there was an opening and we thought we could do something different and decided to concentrate on sweet and sour crêpes as there's nothing like it in Killarney. We also offer very high quality barista coffee and gourmet hot chocolate."

He said that although they opened the doors as a sit down service just before Christmas, due to the introduction of Level 5 restrictions they changed to a take away service and are "following all HSE guidelines and safety protocols".

"The reaction has been very positive and it's building momentum. It's a nice treat and we're picking up customers who are out for walks. We've had queues around the block and it's allowing us to keep a service open to the public and staff employed which is very important to us."

Killarney native Patrick O’Sullivan Greene will launch his second book in the Great Southern Killarney on December 2.

O’Sullivan Greene explains Éamon de Valera’s mission to gain recognition for the newly formed Irish republic in New York in 1919 in his latest book ‘Revolution at the Waldorf: America and the Irish War of Independence’.

Without American recognition and funding the young Irish Government was sure to fail against the might of the British Empire and the book tells the story of how de Valera and Ireland-based Michael Collins – much to the defiance of the British authorities at Dublin Castle – got the new State off the ground.

O’Sullivan grew up in New Street and is now based in Beaufort after a career in finance took him all over the world including Dublin, London, New York and France.

“Killarney is the natural place for me to launch the book,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“There will be an interesting mix of people there.”

O’Sullivan Greene published his first book, ‘Crowdfunding the Revolution: The First Dáil Loan and the Battle for Irish Independence’, in 2020.

One community group have shown that they care deeply for others by crafting handmade blankets for charity.

Using their range of skills and some colourful wool, members of Kilcummin Community Care worked together to make blankets for service users on the Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus.

“Each blanket is assigned as a personal gift to the clients using the Cancer Link Bus and is kept by them,” Kate Fleming, Chairperson of Kilcummin Community Care, said.

The knitting of the squares to make the blankets began at a gathering in the Rose Hotel in 2018. It was a gathering of different volunteer groups.

The Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus were requesting knitted squares to make blankets for the clients who were using their facilities, she explained.

“Kilcummin Community Care were knitting at the time, so it was decided to help out this worthy cause. We received donations of wool from people in the parish and surrounding areas. Kilcummin ICA also got involved in the efforts.”

During the two years of COVID-19, members of both organisations continued to knit and are still knitting to the present day.
