Ryanair will not fly to and from Kerry and London between January 5 and the middle of February at the earliest as COVID-19 restrictions have created even more uncertainty for the airline industry.

The news will come as a blow to several London-based Kerry immigrants who chose to fly home for Christmas.

Many had delayed their annual trip home to early in the New Year as a result of rising Coronavirus restrictions in the UK.

London was placed into Tier 3 restrictions earlier this week which is the same as Level 5 in Ireland.
For one London-based Aghadoe family it means that their already postponed New Year trip home is now cancelled.

Jerry and Margaret Cronin and their adult children Eoghan and Tara usually spend Christmas in London and return home in time to celebrate New Year in Killarney.
They had already postponed that trip until January 15.

Ryanair told customers this week that one flight will serve each of the two London airports on New Year’s day. A Stansted flight will operate on January 3 and a Luton flight is scheduled for January 5.

After these dates it not possible to book a flight between Kerry and London until mid-February and even at that the Cronin family are not confident that this will be possible by then.

“The first flight now is February, but even that will be cancelled, I think," Tara told the Killarney Advertiser.

“I tried changing the flights but it is easier now to go looking for refunds. It looks like both countries will be in full lockdown again in the New Year. It all now depends on the vaccines and they won’t put them out if the infection rate is too high.”

Nicole Coffey of Nicole’s Hair Salon on St Anne’s was inspired to run a fundraiser for a women’s refuge after hearing distressing stories from some of her clients.

On Saturday last she offered a wash and blow-dry to clients and rather than charging them for the her services her customers made a donation to Adapt Women’s Refuge in Tralee.

Nicole was inspired to run the charity day because a lot of her regular clients opened up to her while they were getting their hair done.

The timing of her charity day was poignant as it came just days after Ashling Murphy was murdered while out for a run in her own town of Tullamore.

“People open up while I do their hair, many of them would not know that there is a refuge in Kerry,” she told the Killarney Advertiser. “I have experience with clients who are struggling. I had this idea to create more awareness for Adapt.”

She raised €2,000 for Adapt and the cheque was handed over to the Tralee-based charity on Thursday night this week.

Such was the success of her charity day Nicole worked from 7am to 7pm and as well as cash donations customers also donated vouchers and care packs to the charity.
