Santa’s special message to the children of Killarney

Published

on

His magic bag is almost packed and the big man in red is ready to fly around the world to deliver presents to millions of children - and he has this week confirmed that Killarney will be one of his stops.

This week editor of the Killarney Advertiser Michelle Crean made a very special phone call to the North Pole to check if Santa Claus is ready to go - and he confirmed that he is!

Santa was in great form and said that all the toys are made by his team of creative elves and that the reindeer - including the very special Rudolf - are doing the final checks today.

However, he has asked us to let the boys and girls know that they have to be in bed extra early and be good for the next few days.

And he told us that a naughty little elf last year created some trouble in peoples' homes.

"Last year I got lots of complaints from parents when I got home that large quantities of cereal was spilled in kitchens," he said.

"But it turned out to the Merry Twinkles, the chief navigating elf that travels with me on Christmas night. She loves all the cereals that boys and girls have for breakfast every morning. I have spoken to Merry Twinkles not to do this this year. So if you see cereal spilled on the ground let me know by sending photographic evidence to editor@killarneyadvertiser.ie and Michelle will let me know. Happy Christmas and I hope you enjoy all the presents."

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
