Following a lovely luncheon on Wednesday afternoon, members of Killarney Rotary Club made a lovely gesture.

Together they gathered outside the Great Southern Killarney and presented Máire Breathnach from Down Syndrome Kerry (DSK) with a cheque.

"We donated to Down Syndrome Kerry and a number of other local beneficiaries from the Afternoon Tea event held in October," Ciara Irwin-Foley from Killarney Rotary told the Killarney Advertiser.

Máire, who has a child with Down Syndrome, said it was great to get the much needed donation.

"We are a parent led group with no Government funding," she said.

"What we collect we spend in providing therapeutic and support services and life skills programmes. We provide support up to third level."

She added that they are also planning a new employment support initiative.

"It has been advertised for. That will help support our young adults with employment in Kerry. We're looking for the support of the community in terms of employers open to it. Our adult members want to work and be full members of society. Inclusivity is the name of the game."

Kerry take on Cork in the first round of the Munster Championship at Fitzgerald Stadium on Saturday.

This glamour tie always attracts a huge crowd and Cork fans will travel in their droves from the Rebel County.

As a result there will be parking restrictions and traffic disruptions in the town on Saturday afternoon.

“Please be aware that the town will be bustling with activity, and traffic congestion is expected. Some parking areas may reach capacity, so we recommend allowing extra time for your journey,” said a Garda spokesperson.

Parking will be available in the following areas near the stadium: New Street, The Glebe car park, Fair Hill car park, High Street, Rock Road car park and the Lewis Road car park.

Parking in the vicinity of Fitzgerald Stadium is reserved for residents with parking passes only.

Killarney For Palestine is raffling two tickets to a Taylor Swift concert in Edinburgh.

The group is raising funds for the Halaq family who are known to Kerry Friends of Palestine and who are currently displaced in tents in the Gaza Strip.

Their homes were destroyed in the city of Khan Younis by Israeli airstrikes.

“It currently costs between €5,000 and €6,000 per person to be evacuated from Gaza,” said Susan Larkin of Killarney For Palestine.

To be in with a chance of winning the tickets for the June 8 concert all you have to do is make a donation via the gofundme link below.

A minimum €5.00 donation ensures entry to the draw which will be made on April 24.
