A rare whiskey which is limited to 18 bottles helped raised €1,500 for a local charity.

Killarney’s Celtic Whiskey this week presented a cheque to Kerry Parents & Friends after auctioning ‘The Dingle Celt’ Irish whiskey bottles.

Following the success of their award-winning Celtic Cask Independent bottlings, the decision to release an ultra exclusive Dingle whiskey was made earlier this year.

The Dingle Celt is an extremely rare bottling from a single cask at Dingle Distillery, which has been triple distilled and fully aged in a 50 litre Caratelli Chestnut Cask that previously matured Vin Santo dessert wine from Altesino - one of the finest wineries in Tuscany. The single malt was distilled at the Dingle distillery on May 23, 2015 and bottled by Celtic Whiskey at cask strength on December 6, 2018, this whiskey is limited to 18 bottles.

 

Customers had the opportunity to purchase one of 15 bottles online at www.celticwhiskeyauction.com from Monday, August 5 to Monday August 19 - the remaining three bottles are now available by the measure at the Celtic Whiskey Bar & Larder in New Street, Killarney.

Celtic Whiskey decided to donate at least €100 to a local charity from each highly sought-after bottle. Kerry Parents & Friends Association (KPFA) was chosen by the Celtic Whiskey team due to it being a charity very close to a couple of staff members and a fantastic cause.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to give this cheque to Marie from Kerry Parents & Friends Association (KPFA),” Bar Manager, Luke Crowley-Holland, said.

“The care provided by the KPFA is hugely important to the community and is one that is close to the hearts to a number of us at Celtic Whiskey.”

CEO, Marie Linehan said that Kerry Parents & Friends are delighted to receive €1500.

“We have a lot of programmes running in the county and a cheque of this size will help tremendously. At present we run a transport service from Killarney town to and from work, provide staffing resources for people who require extra help for taking on extra activities in the community - cleaning the cathedral, maintaining the railway station flowers, uprooting the polytunnel at the Great Southern - a streetwise programme and a mindfulness programme.”

Ian O’Connell said he is delighted with the messages of support following his first broadcast as a presenter on Radio Kerry this week.

The well-known and popular Killarney man was left with life-changing injuries after falling from his bike in Killarney National Park in 2017.

Since the accident he has been a champion for the less fortunate under his mantra: “If you can’t stand up – standout”.

This was the inspiration behind his brand new radio show which aired for the first time on Wednesday evening.

‘Stand Out with Ian O’Connell’ will feature interviews with people who have overcome great adversary to reach even greater heights.

His first guest was fellow Killarney man Jordan Lee. The Paralympian represented Ireland in the Tokyo Olympics this summer.

“I was used to being in the studio from people interviewing me, but this time I turned the table,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“It was great to have Jordan on, two Killarney men! I really enjoyed it, it got a massive reaction and I got loads of emails and messages afterwards and into Thursday morning.”

Ian will reveal his guest for the show on the previous Monday through various social media channels.
