SKDP Enterprise Officer Joanne Griffin, who organises the event alongside Katy Jacobi, Events Manager from Killarney Tourism and Chamber of Commerce, said that employers she has spoken to are optimistic with regard to the 2022 season.

"All employers are telling me they have a significant number of jobs available across all departments and they are hopeful that people will return to employment again,” Joanne said.

The event will again target all jobseekers but also those who are looking for a change in career and applications from jobseekers to take part in the event is by registration at the entrance on the day.

“This event offers both the jobseekers and the employers the opportunity to meet a large range of potential employers and employees on the same day which has proven to be a key factor in previous SKDP Recruitment events success."

Killarney cyclist Sam Bolger (18) has been selected as one of four riders for the Belgian Project – one of the most prestigious stepping stones for Irish riders with ambitions to turn professional.

Northern Ireland-based Belgian Danny Blondell is the man behind the project.

For the last 15 years Blondell selects between four and six Irish riders and sends them to Belgium where they stay with local families and contest pro and semi-pro races.

As a race commentator Blondell is well placed to decide who is deserving of inclusion in the project.

Over the first six months of the year he makes decisions while attending early season races.

Those lucky enough to get selected go to live and race in Belgium for the second six months of the year.

Bolger, from Lewis Road, was selected after winning the junior race in the Cycling Ireland National Road Series in Mayo in March and the Orwell Stage Race in County Wicklow in June.

“He is delighted, it is a very big deal,” his father Paul told the Killarney Advertiser.

“He has had a very good year and the wins in Mayo and Wicklow secured the Belgium Project.”

Bolger will head to Belgium in late July and after to the Junior Tour of Ireland which takes place in County Clare between July 12 and 17.
