Popular High St café Sceal Eile has reopened after a major refurbishment and has been re-named as Marguerite’s.

NOW OPEN: Maurice Regan Manager at Marguerite's formally known as Sceal Eile on High St.

The restaurant is operated by Marguerite's Home Bakery in Newcastle West, County Limerick.

Marguerite's was first opened by Margaret and Richard Condon in the Limerick town in the 1970s and has been expanding ever since. Their son, also called Richard, now runs the business.

The Limerick bakery supplies cakes and buns to several local shops and the company’s vans are a regular sight on Kerry’s roads.

The renamed café reopened on Tuesday, and despite a facelift and name change, the same friendly staff remain on hand to serve locals and visitors.

These include Annette Horgan, Tanya McCormick, Richard Condon and Maurice Regan.

“We are delighted to be back,” Annette told the Killarney Advertiser. “Locals were popping in telling us how happy they are to see us open.”

Marguerite's is currently open for outdoor dining but once restrictions are lifted the restaurant will be fully open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

New additions since the refurbishment include an ice cream cone machine and a state-of-the-art coffee machine.

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.

One community group have shown that they care deeply for others by crafting handmade blankets for charity.

Using their range of skills and some colourful wool, members of Kilcummin Community Care worked together to make blankets for service users on the Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus.

“Each blanket is assigned as a personal gift to the clients using the Cancer Link Bus and is kept by them,” Kate Fleming, Chairperson of Kilcummin Community Care, said.

The knitting of the squares to make the blankets began at a gathering in the Rose Hotel in 2018. It was a gathering of different volunteer groups.

The Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus were requesting knitted squares to make blankets for the clients who were using their facilities, she explained.

“Kilcummin Community Care were knitting at the time, so it was decided to help out this worthy cause. We received donations of wool from people in the parish and surrounding areas. Kilcummin ICA also got involved in the efforts.”

During the two years of COVID-19, members of both organisations continued to knit and are still knitting to the present day.
