ST PAUL'S BASKETBALL CLUB will hold a meeting for all club coaches and members on Monday, May 23, in the Killarney Avenue Hotel (residents lounge) at 8pm.

All coaches are urged to attend this meeting so that the club can put in place the mandatory Garda betting for the coming season. Parents, former players and other interested people are also more than welcome to help out with teams in the new season which will commence in the autumn.

In the coming weeks St Paul’s will be arranging a one-day foundation course for all coaches and this will be certified by Basketball Ireland.
The club also hopes to have all officers and coaches in place in the next few months in time for the new season.

At the recent end-of-season general meeting, Padraig Weldon was the popular choice to be elected as the new club chairman and succeeds Tricia O'Shea, who steps down after six years of dedicated service.

Tributes were paid to Tricia for her outstanding work and commitment over the past few years. It will be a busy year for Padraig Weldon on and off the court as he continues to line out for the senior men’s team and he is enthusiastic about implementing new ideas and steering the club in the right direction.

Everybody in the club wishes Padraig every success going forward and will support him every way possible
The St Paul's senior men’s division will continue training for the summer every Friday evening at 7.30pm in Killarney Sports Centre. New members are welcome.

Spa GAA club has signed up to participate in the Ireland Lights Up winter walking initiative.

The lights will be on every Wednesday night between 7pm and 8pm for the next few weeks at the club’s new walking track. This week marked the second week of night walking but the club also held a candle-light vigil in memory of Ashling Murphy, the Offaly school-teacher who was murdered while out for a walk two weeks ago.

“Participants can follow the walking track that offers a safe off-road path and this activity is open to everyone in the community. If anyone would be available to help with registration or stewarding any night, all help is greatly appreciated,” said club PRO Deirdre O’Sullivan-Darcy.

Any volunteers that can help any evening or any questions please contact Margaret Doyle on 0879181970.

Killarney Municipal District is to appoint the services of a tree specialist to exam the condition of trees in the wider district.

The move follows last December’s Storm Barra. during which several tress were toppled. 
One motorist had a lucky escape when a tree fell on their car during the storm. Another fallen tree blocked access to the Moll’s Gap road near Muckross.
Both Cllrs John O’Donoghue and Donal Grady raised the issue at a recent Killarney Municipal District meeting.
“In order to mitigate against such events, the Killarney MD Office are in the process of preparing tender documents to procure assessment of specific trees that are in the charge of Kerry County Council.” A council official told the meeting.
“This will allow the MD to make determinations on individual trees in its charge. Individual property owners are responsible for the welfare and maintenance of trees within and along the boundary of their property lines.”
