Killarney Camera Club's latest theme was 'Low Angle' and again an eclectic range of subjects were photographed and submitted for the January competition.

Many members rose to the challenge with winning images being awarded to Seamus Long in the Unrestricted Category and to Deirdre Donohue in the Novice category.

Seamus gave the following insight into his winning shot.

“I have many photographs of the Eiffel Tower from my many visits to Paris over the years. This time, I wanted to get something out of the ordinary and decided to photograph it from underneath one of the arches to create a dynamic composition. I took the photograph in the evening, just after the artificial lights on the tower were turned on, but with effective natural light still in the sky.”

Winners in the top three in each category were:

 

Unrestricted category:

1st Place: Seamus Long, Image 15, Eiffel Tower, 175 points
2nd Place: Ade Desbrow, Image 17, Mycena, 173 points
3rd Place: Tina Costigan, Image 11, Tangerine Dreams, 168 points

Novice category:

1st Place: Deirdre Donohue, Image 2, Uprooted, 163 points
Joint 2nd Place: Eamon Fleming, Image 20,
Lola the Showgirl, 161 points
Joint 2nd Place: Eoin Foley, Image 14, Lighting The Way, 161 points
3rd Place: Conor Healy, Image 7, Roches Point Lighthouse, 154 points

There’s no language barrier when it comes to dancing – which is why one local group is organising classes to unite communities.

KASI, the Killarney Immigrant Support Centre, has teamed up with dance instructor John Moriarty to teach both Ukrainians and multiple cultures living in Kerry Irish set dancing steps from next week.

The first class will take place on Tuesday evenings, starting next week (September 27) at St Mary’s Parish Hall at 6.30pm and all are welcome to join.

The idea is to help Ukrainians living in Killarney and Kerry to come and have fun and get to know locals better, KASI coordinator, Marilyn Catapat-Counihan, explained to the Killarney Advertiser.

“We have a women’s group for all ages where we do crochet, sewing and art and crafts, where they can talk which is good. I had the music on and they were dancing. I asked if they would like to do dancing classes so I organised it with John Moriarty who is well known in Killarney.”

She added that the women are very excited to learn set dancing and get to know other people from the area.

“Sometimes when you meet new people the language can be a barrier and when you’re dancing everybody is moving. He will open it to everyone so there’ll be integration, it’s fun as well. They are all very excited.”

The rising cost of fuel is already having a negative effect on charity events with some limiting numbers.

On October 9, the annual Multiple Sclerosis South Kerryv Walk takes place over the Old Kenmare Road.

First run in 2002, this year’s event will celebrate 20 years since its foundation but two years were lost as a result of the pandemic.

This year’s walk will be limited to 150 people – three coach loads – so event organisers can cut back on running costs.

It will only be possible to participate in this year’s event if walkers pre-register.

“Walkers must raise at least €40 to make it worthwhile,” organiser John O’Shea told the Killarney Advertiser.

“Spaces are limited, 150 people equals three coaches and we need smaller coaches to get into the start of the Old Kenmare Road as that is just a bog road. We have limited numbers for cost and operational reasons.”

Mr O’Shea thanked event sponsors O’Callaghan Coaches and The Gleneagle Hotel for their support of the event.

Registration forms can be obtained by calling John on 087 2348824.
