A website which has a feast of stories from all over Kerry is to be officially launched today (Tuesday). Storied Kerry, www.storiedkerry.com, was set up to entertain and stimulate in these difficult times. And since last March the site has published stories every Tuesday and Thursday from the eight districts, and include a mixture of legend, landscape, plants, animals, archaeology, history, folklore, with some contemporary work.

“Setting up the Storied Kerry website was our big step forward this year," Storied Kerry Chairman Frank Lewis explained. “This was to make all of us know more of our Kerry story and in this way enrich and enhance all of our lives, bonding us more closely to our own place, encouraging us to look at the potentials of our place and play our part in developing it, sharpening our awareness of the problems and committing to solving them.”

The ambition was to encourage all of us to research a Kerry story that interested us, he explained.

"Storied Kerry directors from each of the county's eight districts encouraged all of us to research and present our Kerry story and publish all of these on www.storiedkerry.com. Now, after 10 months, it is time to officially launch the website. This is taking the place of the day long conference we ran around Hallowe'en in 2018 and 2019 in St Oliver's National School."

The 45 minute official launch will take place at the Institute of Technology in Tralee (ITT) and will be live on the website and on the Storied Kerry Facebook page at 4pm today (Tuesday). On Saturday December 12 it will be repeated with comments from viewers.

The technical preparation and presentation of the launch is being done by Phillip Doyle and his students from the Creative Writing and Technical Department of the ITT, which on January 1 becomes part of the Munster Technological University (MTU).

"My students and I are delighted to assist in the official launch of the website. This live-streamed broadcast will help bring the Kerry story to a global audience,” Phillip said. “We hope to continue our collaborations with Storied Kerry as we transition into our university status, with increased benefits for all involved."

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!”
