A new pedestrian crossing at Fossa National School has moved a step closer to reality this week. Several campaigns have been organised by local residents and members of the school community to build the crossing near the school in the village.

Politicians have called for the installation of the crossing too, including separate deputations led by current Mayor Cllr Brendan Cronin, and Cllr Maura Healy-Rae.

It is almost two years since Cllr Healy-Rae led a deputation of residents to a Killarney Municipal District meeting where residents outlined fears that a child could be knocked down and killed in the village.

At last week’s KMD meeting she asked for the Council to provide an update on the project, which also includes a walking and cycling path.

The meeting was told that designs for the project were nearly finished.

Killarney area engineer, John Ahern, told the meeting: “The Feasibility Report for this project is being finalised in agreement with the Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII). The design report has commenced.”

The next step is the planning permission process where details of the proposed design layout are published in local newspapers and members of the public will be invited to comment on the plans. This is scheduled for the end of March this year.

It’s back – and not before time – the hugely popular Killarney Rotary Club evening of Wine and Art will return this November.

The pandemic enforced its absence and now every effort is being made to make up for lost time.

Widely regarded as one of the social highlights of the year in Killarney, this year’s gathering will take place in the Great Southern Killarney on Wednesday, November 30, commencing at 7.15pm.

Tickets, which will be available at the door, are priced at €20 and all proceeds raised on the night will go to deserving local charities and community organisations.

Over the years the evening of wine and art has raised tens of thousands of Euro for great causes and the 2022 proceeds will be of enormous benefit to the chosen groups.

This year, once again, the event is being held in association with Daly’s SuperValu and supported by Killarney Brewing and Distilling Company.

Rotary Club President, Rayla Tadjimatova, has appealed to all artists who might like to showcase their work on the night to get in touch with club members, as soon as possible, to guarantee inclusion.

“We are reaching out not only to artists who have supported the event in the past but to any new artists who wish to take the opportunity to place their work in front of a very appreciative local audience of up to one thousand people on the night,” she said.

Those interested should email killarneyrotaryclub@gmail.com as soon as possible.
