Aldi’s new Killarney store on the Park Road was officially opened on Thursday by Mayor Marie Moloney.

Aldi’s nationwide expansion continued with the opening of its new store in Killarney, creating seven permanent jobs in the local area.

Located on Park Road, the store was officially opened on Thursday by the Mayor and store manager Patrick Lawlor.

“This new store greatly enhances the Killarney retail experience, I really like the idea of the pedestrian entrance off Park Road,” Mayor Marie Moloney told the Killarney Advertiser at the official opening.

Other local guests to attend the official opening included MEP Sean Kelly, Ciara Griffin, former Ireland Rugby Captain, TD Danny Healy-Rae and councillors Niall Kelleher and Donal Grady

The new €8M store will replace its existing store at Ardshanavooly, a short distance away, which closed on January 10 after 14 years, ahead of the new store opening on Thursday.

New Store Design

Featuring Aldi’s exciting award-winning Project Fresh layout and design, the new store boasts a large shop floor spanning 1,260sqm, making it 50% larger than the old Killarney store.

There are also 113 car park spaces available to customers in Killarney, along with 15 bicycle rack stands. Aldi’s Killarney store will also provide access to free-to-use electric vehicle-charging points for customers. Aldi has invested in ventilation heat recovery, which will be used to power underfloor heating, in addition to solar panel energy.

Tributes have been paid to Peggy O’Callaghan, who was laid to rest on Tuesday of this week.

Peggy played a central role in all activities related to Kilcummin parish. She passed away peacefully at her home on Friday, January 7.

Peggy and her husband Michael founded Kilcummin Scor in 1978 – the music and drama arm of the local GAA club.

“It afforded the opportunity to females to participate in club activities long before ladies’ football was initiated and it brought many people into the club, many of whom remained involved in different capacities over the years,” said a club statement.

“She has left us a wonderful legacy and will be remembered fondly by those lucky enough to have met her.”

Peggy will be sadly missed by her husband Michael, sons Diarmuid and Shane, daughters-in-law Trisha and Áine, grandchildren Dara, Caoimhe, Donnacha, Siún and Éabha, brothers Seánie and Frank, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews, extended family, neighbours and friends.

Plans to link the Monsignor O’Flaherty Road with New St via a new road at Bohereen na Goun have been announced by Killarney Municipal District.

Town engineer John Ahern told Wednesday’s Killarney Municipal District Meeting between elected councillors and senior council executives that Kerry County Council intends to make a compulsory purchase order on lands that will link the two town centre streets.

If plans come to fruition it will be possible for motorists on New St to get to the top of High St, adjacent to the Killarney Advertiser’s town centre office, without travelling through the town centre. The plan was first mooted as far back as 2016.

The announcement caught councillors off guard, it was one of the last topics discussed at the four-hour meeting, but it was broadly welcomed by all.

“This access will change the dynamic of traffic movement in the town forever,” said Cllr Niall Kelleher.

Further details of the surprise project are set to be revealed to elected members over the next four to six weeks.
