Whether you’re an Ulster Bank or KBC customer who needs to switch, or you’ve decided to jump on the switching bandwagon - because, you know saving money on Current Account fees is nice - making the move may seem intimidating, confusing, or just a little inconvenient.

All five regional airports in the country will share a total of €21,100,051 released under the scheme.

Kerry Airport will get €1,434,355 to put towards vital safety operations like air traffic control, fire services and security.

The CEO of Kerry Airport, John Mulhern, welcomed the funding.

“We are grateful to Minister Naughton, the Department of Transport and Kerry’s two Government TDs, Minister Norma Foley and Deputy Brendan Griffin for their continued support,” he said.

An opportunity to meet Santa, Mrs Claus and the amazing elves at their magical grotto, will be available in Killarney in the exciting lead-up to Christmas.

The spectacular base will run from Thursdays to Sundays right up to December 23, with the doors open from 5pm to 9pm on Thursdays and from 12.30pm to 6pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

They are really looking forward to welcoming the boys and girls to their lovely grotto in the ANAM Arts and Cultural Centre on East Avenue Road, right in the heart of town.

Santa will spend some time with each family and he may even have a token Christmas decoration for each child to take home to keep in a special place to remind them of the day they met the most loved man in the world.

There will also be time for an optional souvenir photograph which will be available for purchase separately.

Children that haven’t sent off their Santa letters yet can bring them along and post them in the special North Pole post office.

The Santa Experience is non-profit with all proceeds going back into the running of the Christmas in Killarney Festival.

Those wishing to meet Santa are advised to book online and bring their tickets with them at their scheduled time and to try to understand if things run a little over as each child reacts to Santa differently.

Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times and tickets must be purchased for each family member with a maximum number of eight people per time slot.

Each visit will last approximately 20 minutes. Visit www.christmasinkillarney.com for more information.
