Prince Charles and his wife Camilla were inducted into the Order of Innisfallen in a ceremony at Killarney House today.

This is an honour reserved for people from outside of Killarney who have made an exceptional contribution to the local economy. Previous inductees include actor Michael Fassbender and former Taoiseach Enda Kenny.

The royals are visiting Kerry on the third leg of a three-day trip which started in Omagh on Wednesday. They travelled to Derrynane from Cork this morning via helicopter. In south Kerry, they stopped off in the birthplace of Daniel O’Connell before flying to Tralee to take in a performance at Siamsa Tíre.

They then departed for Killarney by car and the royal entourage, which includes 12 vehicles in total,  arrived Muckross House and Gardens after 2pm. There they visited the schoolhouse, traditional farms and Muckross House itself, where Queen Victoria stayed when she came to Killarney in August 1861.

The Prince and the Duchess of Cornwall then travelled by car to Killarney House at 3pm where they to mingled with 200 invited guests. It is here where the royal couple were inducted into the prestigious Order of Innisfallen.

Major traffic congestion was less than expected in town today between 2.45pm and 4.45pm even though Mission Road, which runs alongside Killarney House and Gardens, was shut down.

Thanks to Valerie O'Sullivan for these historic photos.

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.
