Census 2022 will take place on Sunday, April 3 next year and the Central Statistics Office (CSO) needs to hire 189 Census Enumerators to deliver and collect forms to and from every home in Kerry.

Enumerators can earn up to €3,200 for working 10 weeks part-time, between February 28 and May 6, 2022. An online application process opens today (Thursday) at www.census.ie.

The results from the Census are vital to planning the future of public services in Kerry and across the country. To deliver a successful Census the team of enumerators will be required to deliver and collect census forms to approximately 54,000 households across the county.

"A Census Enumerator is a job that really counts," Census Enumerator, Eileen Murphy, Head of Census Administration, said.

"Those who undertake this rewarding position will be providing a valuable service to the people of Kerry, by ensuring future policy decisions are made based on their community's needs. The job of Census Enumerator is highly flexible, so a perfect option for many people not in a position to commit to full-time work. Over the 10 weeks enumerators will work approximately 22 hours per week and can largely pick their own hours. Each enumerator is responsible for the delivery and collection of around 400 census forms in their local area."

According to Eileen, the role of Census Enumerator is best suited to a people person who enjoys meeting and engaging with new people.

"It is important that you can work well on your own. The job does require some persistence, as you may need to visit some homes multiple times to secure a response. Good weather in spring in Ireland is not guaranteed, so you need to be ready for working outdoors in all weathers."

The application process is expected to remain open until December 3. However, early applications are recommended as the CSO will cease taking applications once they have reached the required number.

What do roses, wrens, King Puck, fairies and Santa Claus have in common? Well, all now feature in a new children’s book co-written by a mother and son.

The new illustrated poetry collection for children, ‘A Very Kerry Year’, by Killorglin mother and son, Jacinta and Conor Browne, has been published just in time for Christmas.

And all proceeds will be donated to Comfort for Chemo, an organisation whose mission it is to build and equip a chemotherapy unit for the people of Kerry.

The charity is close to the young author’s heart as Conor himself was undergoing cancer treatment while writing this book.

With original poetry by the mother and son, the book also has another separate family connection as the talented illustrators are local artists, father-daughter duo Con and Rochelle Lucey, with each page awash with colour and beautiful drawings.

“I know first-hand how important it is to have a comfortable environment while receiving chemotherapy,” Conor said.

‘A Very Kerry Year’ is currently available for €12 from The Crystal Cave and the Reeks District Tourist Office in Killorglin and will soon be available in many more outlets throughout the county.
