Post communion chop for Karolina

Published

By Michelle Crean

COVID delayed her special communion day so it meant a longer wait for one local girl who was longing to get her locks chopped for charity.

Nine-year-old Karolina Kasprzak, who is a Third Class pupil in Oliver's Ballycasheen, was originally scheduled to celebrate her First Holy Communion on May 23.

However, due to the sudden lockdown resulting in school closures in March, Karolina had to wait to have her hair cut until after September 19 - the day her communion finally went ahead.

But, with a two week wait to get an appointment in a salon, Karolina couldn't wait any longer and asked her mom Gosia to instead cut it!

And now she's delighted with her new look and feeling proud that she has helped sick children as she has sent a 45cm long braid to 'Rak'n'Roll', a charity for sick children in her parents homeland of Poland.

"She left her hair long for her First Holy Communion," her mom Gosia from Countess Road told the Killarney Advertiser this week.

"I was waiting to do communion photos for her with long her. She couldn't wait two weeks to get her hair cut in the salon so she was happy for me to cut it. I was nervous but she loves it. She looks so grown up and she's more confident."

The next day Karolina couldn't wait to show it off in school, Gosia added.
"She had a hoodie on and everybody waited for her to show her hair! We have sent the braid by post to 'Rak'n'Roll' in Warsaw."

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
