A BURST of colour illuminated a frosty evening as the Killarney Rotary Club Evening of Wine & Art brought the festive social calendar to an exciting start on Thursday night.

The 13th annual event, in The Malton Hotel, took place in association with Daly’s SuperValu. Daly’s kept the wonderful wine flowing and served delectable sweet and savoury treats, with Killarney Brewing Company supplying enticing beers.

Killarney Rotary President Angela O’Connor paid tribute to all involved in the event. “We organised the event in aid of a host of deserving local causes, both on the charitable and sporting fronts, namely The Stephen Lyne Foundation, The Killarney Cardiac Response Unit, Football For All, Killarney Swimming Club, The Kilcummin Defibrillator Group, Fossa Rowing Club, Gaelscoil Faithleann, Coolick and Tiernaboul Schools, the Order of Malta and Presentation Secondary School Music Programme.”

Angela also thanked the artists involved. “None of this would be possible without the numerous local artists who have been working away over the last year and who deserve our support and encouragement for their talent.”

The coveted KY-1 plate has been allocated to Adams of Tralee for the second year in a row.

The county’s Hyundai dealership secured the coveted plate as a result of the Hyundai Tucson topping the individual model sales charts for 2021.

Available in diesel, petrol and pug-in hybrid, the Tucson offers something for every motorists.

With the switch to full electric not far away, Adams of Tralee’s general manager Marcus O’Shea believes that hybrid offers the perfect transition from fossil fuelled-cars to electric.

“It is a steeping-stone towards full electric,” he told the Killarney Advertiser. “It reduces the range anxiety for those not ready for full electric and it gets people used to new ways – plugging in the car at night at home will become normal and hybrid is the first step.”

The Tucson range has a model to suit all tastes and budgets. As well as being available in petrol, diesel or hybrid, each power variant is also available as in entry-level, mid or high specification formats.

Nicole Coffey of Nicole’s Hair Salon on St Anne’s was inspired to run a fundraiser for a women’s refuge after hearing distressing stories from some of her clients.

On Saturday last she offered a wash and blow-dry to clients and rather than charging them for the her services her customers made a donation to Adapt Women’s Refuge in Tralee.

Nicole was inspired to run the charity day because a lot of her regular clients opened up to her while they were getting their hair done.

The timing of her charity day was poignant as it came just days after Ashling Murphy was murdered while out for a run in her own town of Tullamore.

“People open up while I do their hair, many of them would not know that there is a refuge in Kerry,” she told the Killarney Advertiser. “I have experience with clients who are struggling. I had this idea to create more awareness for Adapt.”

She raised €2,000 for Adapt and the cheque was handed over to the Tralee-based charity on Thursday night this week.

Such was the success of her charity day Nicole worked from 7am to 7pm and as well as cash donations customers also donated vouchers and care packs to the charity.
