It won’t be the usual trip to the pharmacy tomorrow (Saturday) as staff won’t just be prescribing medication but also coffee and tea as part of a fundraiser.

Staff at Kennellys Pharmacy, The Reeks Gateway, are organising a coffee morning in store to raise funds and awareness for the Kerry Hospice Foundation.

From 11am to 3pm, the public are invited to pop in and have a refreshing cuppa and maybe a sweet treat – and leave a donation for the service.

And not only that, there’ll be spot prizes, face painting and a make-up demonstration, explained staff member Emma O'Connor.

“We are doing it in aid of the Kerry Hospice Foundation as it’s close to everyone’s hearts,” Emma told the Killarney Advertiser this week.

“The service relies on fundraising as they get no Government funding and a lot of people are familiar with their services. Daffodil Day is Friday and we said we’d do something that goes hand-in-hand with it.”

County Kerry is now bearing the full brunt of Storm Barra and the Kerry Severe Weather Coordination Team reminds everyone that a Status RED weather warning, the highest such warning, remains in place for Kerry until 9pm.

Kerry County Council is advising people to avoid the Ballycasheen area of Killarney

Due to the significant risk to life and property, members of the public should remain indoors and not travel for the rest of the evening. Everyone is advised to follow updates on weather warnings from Met Éireann as well as the local media and social media.

There are an increasing number of roads closed or blocked because of fallen trees, electricity poles and spot flooding. Council crews will respond to issues when it is safe to do so and with the assistance of other agencies where required.

The N71 road at the Suspension Bridge in Kenmare remains closed to traffic as does the N70 Tralee to Castlemaine Road at the hairpin bends. There are a significant number of local and regional and local roads blocked or partially blocked by fallen trees, electricity poles and debris in all parts of the county so travel should be avoided.

The Ballycasheen Road in Killarney and Main Street in Ballybunion (and the surrounding area) should be avoided due to concerns about potential falling debris.

The Council’s emergency contact number is 066 7183588 and it will be operational through this evening and tonight.

Fallen electricity wires/poles and power outages should be reported to ESB Networks on 1800 372 999.
