Get ready for a unique gourmet experience as the team at Danu Restaurant at The Brehon will host an exceptional evening where diners will be invited to enjoy their meal blindfolded.

The Killarney ‘Dine in the Dark’ challenge takes place on Saturday, November 9. It is part of a national campaign promoted by both the Restaurants Association of Ireland and the National Council for the Blind.

Over 200 restaurants across the country will take part in this campaign by hosting a Dine in the Dark evening in November.

The three course evening costs €37 per person, with €10 going to the National Council for The Blind.

“The entire team here in Danu Restaurant are really looking forward to taking part in this fantastic initiative in aid of the National Council for The Blind. Our customers can expect a wonderful dining experience when the tastes, textures and flavours of food will tantalise the taste buds,” Sinead McCarthy, General Manager of The Brehon, Killarney, said.

Without their sight to guide them, guests experience complex tastes, flavours and textures in a completely new and innovative way. Senses are heightened, altering taste, touch, smell and communication during the meal.

Sight loss affects one in six people in Ireland, this event will bring people together to raise awareness and raise vital funds for NCBI.

NCBI is the National Sight Loss Agency in Ireland with services including emotional support and counselling, low vision solutions, assistive technology advice and training, rehabilitation training, large print, audio and braille library. The organisation also has an online ship with lots of practical solutions.

Killarney native Patrick O’Sullivan Greene will launch his second book in the Great Southern Killarney on December 2.

O’Sullivan Greene explains Éamon de Valera’s mission to gain recognition for the newly formed Irish republic in New York in 1919 in his latest book ‘Revolution at the Waldorf: America and the Irish War of Independence’.

Without American recognition and funding the young Irish Government was sure to fail against the might of the British Empire and the book tells the story of how de Valera and Ireland-based Michael Collins – much to the defiance of the British authorities at Dublin Castle – got the new State off the ground.

O’Sullivan grew up in New Street and is now based in Beaufort after a career in finance took him all over the world including Dublin, London, New York and France.

“Killarney is the natural place for me to launch the book,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“There will be an interesting mix of people there.”

O’Sullivan Greene published his first book, ‘Crowdfunding the Revolution: The First Dáil Loan and the Battle for Irish Independence’, in 2020.

One community group have shown that they care deeply for others by crafting handmade blankets for charity.

Using their range of skills and some colourful wool, members of Kilcummin Community Care worked together to make blankets for service users on the Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus.

“Each blanket is assigned as a personal gift to the clients using the Cancer Link Bus and is kept by them,” Kate Fleming, Chairperson of Kilcummin Community Care, said.

The knitting of the squares to make the blankets began at a gathering in the Rose Hotel in 2018. It was a gathering of different volunteer groups.

The Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus were requesting knitted squares to make blankets for the clients who were using their facilities, she explained.

“Kilcummin Community Care were knitting at the time, so it was decided to help out this worthy cause. We received donations of wool from people in the parish and surrounding areas. Kilcummin ICA also got involved in the efforts.”

During the two years of COVID-19, members of both organisations continued to knit and are still knitting to the present day.
