For the first time since COVID restrictions were lifted, Killarney Rotary Club welcomed fellow Rotarians from the Glanmire Rotary Club for their regular meeting and fellowship.

Current President od Killarney Rotary, Rayla Tadjimatova, welcomed Glanmire Rotary President Christopher Cuddy and his fellow members to a luncheon in the Great Southern Killarney.

Christopher, who enjoys woodturning as a hobby, personally presented a handmade wooden fruit bowl to mark the occasion.

In return, Killarney Rotary club secretary Eduard Schmidt presented the Glanmire Rotary members with copies of his publication on local Tanka (Japanese Style) Poems which was received with great amusement and interest.

"Killarney Rotary Club are busy planning their fundraising social calendar for later in 2022 such as the popular 'Wine and Art Evening' held for 17 years until COVID put a halt to it, last held in 2019," Rayla Tadjimatova said.

"If any local artist not previously registered who would like to participate this year, please make contact at killarneyrotaryclub@gmail.com."

They are also planning the 'Charity Afternoon Tea' party, a very stylish event which is always a sell-out and one not to be missed in the Garden Room of the Great Southern. Details will be announced shortly along with other local charitable supported projects, she added.

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!”
