The Brehon Brings VR To The Chatroom

Published

on

We were very excited to invite the team from The Brehon into The Chatroom today to talk all about their new Virtual Reality headsets!

Sharon O’Keeffe, Gleneagle Group Brand Manager, Sharon Devine, The Brehon Weddings Sales Manager and Catriona Ashe, The Brehon’s Wedding Coordinator filled in Killarney Advertiser’s clearly excited Kieran Healy on what the virtual reality headset will allow clients to see and the benefits of having such technology available in The Brehon.

When Kieran put on the headset he was blown away by the 4 and a half minute virtual reality tour of how The Brehon will look on your wedding day. From the welcome you will receive from staff, to how the wedding function room will look, even the different layouts of the room that are possible, to the magnificent Honeymoon suite, the entire video is actually like walking through The Brehon on your wedding day and to say it blew Kieran’s mind would be an understatement.

You can watch this latest episode of The Chatroom tonight at 9pm on our website www.killarneyadvertiser.ie on our Facebook page.

Next Friday (June 21), members of the public are invited to attend the Mass taking place at 6.30pm.

Now in its 30th year, the Mass was originally an idea by Geoffrey O’Donoghue who sadly died four years after it began.

“There was an Augustinian Monastery on Innisfallen Island and the people, including priests and monks and they say Brian Boro, went out there to study. The lake, Lough Lein is called ‘The Lake of Learning’,” said his wife Mary who carries on the tradition in his memory.

“My husband Geoffrey was a descendent of the O’Donoghues and he wanted to have Mass on the island. The O’Donoghues built Ross Castle and owned the lands and the lake surrounding it which was later donated by John McShane to the people of Killarney. He [Geoffrey] asked one of the friars and one day he got a call from the OPW that there would be a plaque unveiled to John McShane and they asked if the Mass could coincide with it. It was attended by Sr Pauline, John McShane’s daughter.”

She added that all the public are welcome to attend. Boats, which will have a nominal fee to cover their costs, will be carrying passengers out from 4pm onwards.

A photograph of one of Killarney’s hidden beauty spots was deemed the winner of Killarney Camera Club’s most recent competition.

Th standard was high throughout all categories but in the Novice category, Iryna Halaieva’s photograph of O’Sullivan’s Cascade was deemed the winner.

“A waterfall is my favourite waterbody and long exposure is my favourite photographic technique,” she said. “I do my best to have as many waterfalls as possible in my photo collection. I heard a lot about O’Sullivan’s Cascade and wanted to visit that hidden gem of Kerry. So, shortly before our club competition I went with a friend to Tomies Wood to photograph it. It was a dream come true for me.”
