WELL, it seems that Jake Carter is the man of the moment. He will be starring in the INEC Acoustic Club this evening and has been warmly welcomed to Killarney throughout the week.

As well as popping in for a cuppa in our Chatroom at Killarney Advertiser, the 18-year-old singer received a standing ovation at Killarney Community College where he paid the students a surprise visit.

School PRO Kerri McCarthy said: “It was a very unique opportunity to have a hugely popular live artist perform to our students. Our music teacher, Ms Joanna Hughes, received the call and was delighted that Killarney Community College was chosen to host the event.”

The younger brother of chart-topping artist Nathan Carter, Jake has often performed at his brother’s gigs and festivals and has been a great hit with the fans.

With less and less people carrying lose change around, one local group have now embraced a new technology to make donating much easier.

For their annual Christmas fundraiser, the Killarney Conference of the St Vincent De Paul Society will have a special collection bucket that will allow supporters to use their bank card to make a donation.

The Society’s annual churchgate collection will be held on the weekend of December 11/12 at places of worship in the town and surrounding areas. This year’s collection has be renamed as ‘Giving Sunday’ and makes a return after the pandemic forced the cancellation of last year’s fundraiser.

“We are moving towards a cashless society,” explained Killarney Conference President Breda O’Dwyer. “You can tap and swipe your card to make a donation.”

Breda added that they are hoping to have the buckets ready by next week in time for the collection.

She said the local conference of the St Vincent De Paul Society has seen a marked increase in the number of families it is helping mainly caused by the increase in the cost of fuel and home heating products.

The annual St Vincent De Paul Society’s Christmas Jumper Day, in association with Radio Kerry is scheduled for December 10.

Interestingly, 37.10% of people had made no change to their lifestyle, but they could have been extra cautious already.

A tiny minority – just 1.61% – said they increased their social contacts over the last week.
