RUGBY fans, golfers and even a fair few cyclists will be descending en masse on Killarney Golf & Fishing Club tomorrow for Killarney Rugby Club’s golf classic.

And a novel hole-in-one competition on the iconic 18th hole will certainly challenge even the best. The contest is open to both ladies and gents and the first player who strikes a hole-in-one will win a top-of-the-range bicycle and gear from O'Sullivan's Cycle worth up to €5,000. “It’s a great way to finish a wonderful day of good fun and friendly rivalry,” said Liam Murphy of Killarney Rugby Club.

“The rugby club has had a fantastic response from the business community once again and with over 50 teams of three taking part it promises to be a great day out. Great sponsors have supported the event from the off and the club wishes to thank the many sponsors and supporters in establishing this event.”

It is planned as an inaugural event on the club’s calendar. “We have had great support from all sporting codes in the locality; again and this just shows you how stone mad for sport and 'craic' we are in Killarney and Kerry,” said Liam.

The hole-in-one will cap a series of great prizes including 'nearest the pin'; 'longest drive' and a monster raffle throughout the day for a bundle of great surprises.

“The club also thanks Killarney Golf & Fishing Club for their generous accommodation in Heaven's Reflex and to Paul Cotter and his catering team at The Chapel,” said Liam. “It’s be fun for all those involved and, who knows, we may have a brand new cyclist in next year's Ring of Kerry!”

Spa GAA club has signed up to participate in the Ireland Lights Up winter walking initiative.

The lights will be on every Wednesday night between 7pm and 8pm for the next few weeks at the club’s new walking track. This week marked the second week of night walking but the club also held a candle-light vigil in memory of Ashling Murphy, the Offaly school-teacher who was murdered while out for a walk two weeks ago.

“Participants can follow the walking track that offers a safe off-road path and this activity is open to everyone in the community. If anyone would be available to help with registration or stewarding any night, all help is greatly appreciated,” said club PRO Deirdre O’Sullivan-Darcy.

Any volunteers that can help any evening or any questions please contact Margaret Doyle on 0879181970.

Killarney Municipal District is to appoint the services of a tree specialist to exam the condition of trees in the wider district.

The move follows last December’s Storm Barra. during which several tress were toppled. 
One motorist had a lucky escape when a tree fell on their car during the storm. Another fallen tree blocked access to the Moll’s Gap road near Muckross.
Both Cllrs John O’Donoghue and Donal Grady raised the issue at a recent Killarney Municipal District meeting.
“In order to mitigate against such events, the Killarney MD Office are in the process of preparing tender documents to procure assessment of specific trees that are in the charge of Kerry County Council.” A council official told the meeting.
“This will allow the MD to make determinations on individual trees in its charge. Individual property owners are responsible for the welfare and maintenance of trees within and along the boundary of their property lines.”
