Rotary Club President Barry Murphy announced the funding at a special lunch in the Great Southern Hotel on Wednesday.

“I hope the money will help them to complete the projects that this funding was raised for, and Rotary looks forward to seeing some of these when they are completed, he said at the lunch.
“I thank everybody involved in ensuring the evening was a huge success. A huge amount of voluntary work is involved in the organising of this event, before, during and after, by all. I thank the event sponsors and the 50-plus artists and craftspeople that exhibited and sold on the night.

“A special mention to all the patrons for attending year-in, year-out and the many new faces this year, for coming along to exhibit their art or craft pieces or to enjoy themselves tasting a selection of wines and locally brewed beers on offer, in the knowledge that they were supporting so many local groups by being there and to my fellow Rotarians for their ongoing enthusiasm and energy. They look forward to hosting this event again later this year.

Now in its 20th it’s the year Wine & Art Night is supported by Daly’s SuperValu Killarney, Killarney Brewing & Distilling Company and new last year the Killarney Credit Union.

Kristy Nicholas, pictured, found the ring on s footpath in the Lackabane Estate in Fossa on December 29 last.

Since then she has exhausted all channels in an effort to find the owner including regular contact with the Gardai and local word of mouth.

“Since that time I worked to find the owner through word of mouth and by filing a report with Gardai. Since I’ve been unsuccessful,” she told the Killarney Advertiser.

“The owner could ring the Killarney Gardai station and provide details to be connected with me. To be reunited a description will be needed, such as the brand and designer and type of ring It’s quite an expensive ring so I’m really hoping to get it back to the right place.”
