With an increase in COVID cases reported at 783 yesterday (Wednesday), Cork Kerry Community Healthcare has advised of revised time slots for walk-in testing at its COVID-19 test centre in Kerry.

Walk-in testing without appointment or referral will be available in Tralee from 9am to 11am, Monday to Saturday; and 2pm to 3pm on Sundays and Bank Holidays.

Outside of these times, testing will only be conducted by appointment which can be booked online at hse.ie, and the public is asked to continue to book in advance at covid19test.healthservice.ie/hse-self-referral/.

This allows the HSE to make sure that the centres run as efficiently and safely as possible throughout the day.

Always remember that if you have symptoms then you should contact your GP immediately and they can refer you for a COVID-19 test if necessary. If you are a close contact, contact tracers will advise you on what you need to do, and you should not attend as a walk-in.

See www2.hse.ie/conditions/covid19/testing/walk-in-test-centres/ for more details.

Well-known Dalton’s Avenue woman Eileen Switzer has been named as the Honorary President of Killarney Valley Athletic Club in recognition of her work as a volunteer.

The club held its annual awards night on Friday night last.

As well as presenting awards to club members in recognition of their achievements at home and abroad they decided to honour Mrs Switzer for her “lifetime of volunteering to the community, to sport, to youth and for championing diversity and inclusion”.

“Eileen has been an advocate, a coach and an administrator in the sport of athletics for over 60 years in the town of Killarney, Kerry and beyond,” said club chair Jerry Griffin.

Eileen and her husband Frank have dedicated their lives to the community games and athletics in the greater Killarney area.

“I enjoy, but I don’t like, all the limelight,” she told the Killarney Advertiser.

“I like to watch newcomers as they come up through the ranks, many of the Community Games people of the past are now running the committee.”

In a life time dedicated to volunteerism in Killarney Eileen has helped sports like golf, pitch and putt and badminton grow.  She was also heavily involved in the local Irish dancing scene and remains a great supporter of Kerry Parents and Friends.
