It was a tasty treat for diners - but a fundraising event proved more than tantalising for one local charity - as they received over €2,000 in funds this week.

 

On Wednesday morning, members of the Kerry Hospice Foundation Killarney Branch met outside Celtic Whiskey on New St to graciously receive €2,042 from kind-hearted staff members who held a fundraising food evening on September 14.

Four of Ireland's top young chefs including Jason Nolan who is Head Chef at Celtic Whiskey Bar & Larder in Killarney, Conor Halpenny of The Square in Dundalk, Dan Guerin of Cush in Ballycotton, and Andrew Ryan formerly Ashford Castle Hotel in Mayo organised and catered to 34 guests at a socially distanced evening of fine food.

They were served up a delicious four course tasting menu at the Celtic Whiskey Bar & Larder along with Celtic Whiskey Shop & Wines on the Green donating the accompanying wine pairings as well as canapés and petit fours.

Tickets were €100 each and after costs the majority of the money raised went to the Kerry Hospice Foundation.

Pat Doolan, Chairperson of Kerry Hospice Killarney Branch said that they are very grateful to receive the donation.

"I want to thank the Celtic Whiskey Bar for selecting us as beneficiaries in particular with Jason Nolan and his team for organising the event," he told the Killarney Advertiser.
"I want to acknowledge that the staff volunteered their services on the night which was a kind gesture. Fundraising for the hospice is challenging so we're very grateful for all the support we get."

Chef Jason Nolan added that they chose the KHF as their charity as it has a meaning to everyone.

"We were delighted to help them out. It is a fantastic cause and they're down in funding this year. The night itself was great."

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!”
