Spa Club GAA, who are organising the event, has carried out some major developments in recent years, including the laying of an all-weather playing pitch and alterations to the clubhouse involving the provision of a larger gym, office areas and toilets upstairs.

A new walking path around the club grounds is also widely used by the community.

Among the next important projects is the upgrading of the car park in the club grounds.

More than 50 teams of four golfers per team will be taking part in the classic, major sponsors of which are the Killarney Oaks Hotel, Killarney Oils and Tricel.

“We’re extremely grateful to all our sponsors, tee-box sponsors and those who have entered teams. Their support is a great help to our club which has grown hugely in recent years,’’ said chairman of the classic organising committee, Billy Morris.

The presentation of attractive prizes will be in the Killarney Oaks Hotel on the night of July 8.

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!”
