"Well done to everyone who entered," Deirdre Donohue from Killarney Camera Club said.

"Thanks to everyone for an engaging year and to all the committee and club members for the dedication, fun and fabulous variety of images entered in competitions and to all our presenters for their Zoom presentations and contributions. So much was learnt, enjoyed and appreciated.

"We are breaking up for the summer but will be back in the autumn and hopefully with a venue organised to meet again as we've been online for the past two years with Zoom presentations and competitions. Anyone interested in joining our camera club can email secretary@killarneycameraclub.ie.

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!”
