Killarney Rugby Football Club will unveil its new pitches with a family open day at its grounds in Aghadoe tomorrow (Saturday).

 

The club redeveloped its playing pitches over the course of the last year. All the club’s home games were played at the community pitch in Barraduff over the last season allowing the new pitches time to settle ahead of the 2019 season, which will get underway in September.

 

A day of family fun gets under way at 1.30pm and all are welcome. It has been organised by the club and will include award presentations from last season, and friendly rugby matches between the Captain’s and the President’s 15s. The European Rugby Championship final will also be shown on big screens.

 

“The club usually runs an open day in September to start the season,” Liam Murphy, PRO of the club, said.

 

“We wanted to re-launch our pitches and felt it was better to do this at the end of the season. We want to show our supporters what we have done over the last few months.”

Fans of the ice will be disappointed to hear that Killarney on Ice will not return for a second year.

Following its huge popularity year on year since returning to Killarney in 2015, the promoters of Killarney on Ice are disappointed to confirm that they are unable to operate again this year.

Rising case numbers, uncertain COVID-19 restrictions, and insurance challenges have been the main drivers behind the decision not to open, according to the company.

As Kerry’s only festive ice rink, the facility has brought much fun and life to the town over the years, attracting thousands of people from all over the county, and indeed the whole country, with many families coming to stay overnight in Killarney and enjoying all that this great town has to offer.

As well as friends and families coming to skate, schools, youth clubs, sports teams and employees of local companies use the group booking discount rate to plan sessions on the ice, and Killarney on Ice would like to thank them all for their continuing loyalty.

“We sincerely hope to be back better and stronger in 2022, and we look forward to welcoming all of our valued customers,” Tim O’Donoghue, the promoter of the rink, told the Killarney Advertiser.

“In the meantime, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.”

The Government has approved 10 new posts for Kerry County Council to assist with the delivery of their social housing targets.

The news was announced today (Friday) as part of the Government’s new housing plan ‘Housing for All’ which commits to strengthening the capacity of Local Authorities to initiate, design, plan, develop and manage housing projects.

The plan acknowledges that this requires the resourcing of housing delivery teams and the posts being announced include a wide range of positions from engineers to quantity surveyors and architects with provision also made for the necessary administrative resources.

“I welcome this announcement by my Cabinet colleague Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage, Darragh O’Brien,” Minister Foley said.

“Housing is a key priority for Government and these new posts are an endorsement of the excellent work carried out by Kerry County Council and a deserved recognition of their continued commitment to providing social housing to all local communities across Kerry.”
