Sheila O’Leary from Glenflesk, Killarney was in a jubilant mood this week after receiving the keys to a brand new Suzuki Baleno.
Sheila, from Kipaugh, won the car, which is worth €25,000, in the Killarney Credit Union Member’s Draw, and picked up the keys from Pat Sheehan, Board Chairman, at a prize giving ceremony in the credit union headquarters on Friday night last.
“We currently have just over 2,000 members in the draw which is held twice a year,” Karena McCarthy, Killarney Credit Union Marketing Officer, said.
“This year our prizes included a new car and cash ranging from €250 to €1,000. Our next draw will take place in July.”
Members can apply for the member’s draw at any of the branches or download an application form online www.killarneycu.ie. €12 will then be taken from your account twice a year as an entry fee for the members draw.
The 14 cash prize winners were Niamh Purcell, Bernie Nolan, John Allman, Patrick Doyle, Samuel Leech, Donal Bowler, William Farrell, Margaret Galvin, Bernadette Murphy, John O’Sullivan, Grace Fitzgerald, Timothy Cronin, David Jennings and Eileen Buckley.
The draw was adjudicated by solicitor Eoin Brosnan and KCU Risk and Compliance Manager Shane Foley, in the credit union offices, on Friday, January 11.
“The draw is limited to members of Killarney Credit Union and anyone over the age of 18 can apply to join,” Karena said.
“So for €2 a month, you can be entered into the draw. We would encourage members to sign up if they haven’t already, as the saying goes, ‘if you’re not in, you can’t win’.”

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.”
