NEW STORE: Staff member Mike O’Leary in the new Brian James store on Main St this week.

 

One of Killarney’s best-loved clothes stores, Brian James Menswear, has relocated to a brand new and exceptionally spacious premises at 9-10 Main Street.

Brian James Menswear has moved from its former premises at 35 Main Street to the old O’Donoghue’s Medical Hall building across the street.

The grand-opening took place on Tuesday after a massive relocation project that took place during the lockdown.
“We started this mammoth project just six weeks ago and only for the huge effort put in by a team of talented local businesses, we would not have been able to bring it to completion so quickly,” Brian James told the Killarney Advertiser. “We have been overwhelmed by support from the local community and blown away by the well wishes we have received.”

Brian James opened in 2006 and has brought the best of menswear to Killarney for the last 14 years, having started in College Square, later moved to 35 Main Street.

The latest chapter in the store’s success story is the opening of “this incredible superstore which has to be seen to be believed, such is the size, design and range on offer”.

“The space which we have now has allowed us to bring in new brands, wider ranges and gives us the freedom to look at new concepts and collections. For now, we have added a limited range for women, with Superdry women having landed and we are expecting Calvin Klein women pre-Christmas, followed by Tommy Jeans and more for spring 2021,” added Brian.

The shop is open seven days a week and customers can also shop online at www.brianjames.ie.
Brian James is participating in the Killarney Advertiser’s ‘Shop Local #BigXmasGiveaway’.

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.
