The Chatroom – Kieran put through his paces at Studio 7

Published

on


One year on from opening Studio 7 Fitness, Michael Lindsay invited Kieran down to check out the space and give him a short workout.

During their chat, Michael told Kieran a bit about his background. He was born in England to Mayo parents and he moved to Galway to work in a hotel in Eyre Square before coming down to Killarney almost eight years ago. He tells Kieran about Studio 7 Fitness’ motto, fitness for body AND mind, and all the different kind of classes that are on offer.

Michael was kind enough to give Kieran a few workout tips but, as you’ll see, he might have his work cut out for him.

Darren completes epic run for Crumlin

Published

By Grigoriy Geniyevskiy

A senior player and coach with Killarney Athletic has completed an epic challenge for Crumlin Children’s Hospital.

Darren O’Sullivan ran four miles every four hours for 48 hours over the long weekend to raise the funds.

He completed his final run from Port Road and made his way onto Countess Road and Rookery Road before finishing by Woodlawn Road. Darren started his run on Saturday at 4pm and completed his run on Monday at 4pm – and has raised a total of €953.

Darren said that he was raising money for the Children’s Health Foundation Crumlin as it is close to his heart because he has seen them help so many children and their families.

Darren had been training for three weeks to be able to complete the run.

“Getting up in the morning and starting the run was the hardest part,” he said.

“I would like to thank Killarney Athletic for supporting me. Thank you to those who donated and I was also thinking of doing something similar next year, I’d love to do it again.”

Cathaoirleach of Killarney Municipal District, Cllr Brendan Cronin, officially opened the Muckross Road to Ross Road Cycleway, adding a key link to the town’s cycling and pedestrian pathways.

The scheme, which was constructed by Daniel Canty, under the supervision of Killarney Municipal District Engineers John Ahern and Stephen Sheehan, started in November 2020 and despite stoppages due to COVID, has finished in time for the summer season.

The 750m cycleway joins the Ross Road and Muckross Road, in an off-road, safe route, funded by the Department of Transport, Tourism & Sport and the National Transport Authority under their Active Travel Measures scheme.

The Cathaoirleach, Cllr Cronin, welcomed the development of the route, praising all those who had been involved in driving this project to completion.

“It is a project that has been on the agenda for quite some time, and significant work has been carried out by the Elected Members, Council officials and local communities in making it a reality,” he said. “I want to pay tribute to everyone involved in bringing it from the drawing board to official opening.” Councillor Cronin acknowledged the input of former Councillor Michael Gleeson who was in attendance at the opening.

“Over the past 18 months, with the various restrictions due to COVID, the ability for people to be able to go out for a cycle or a walk has been critical for their well-being. The development of such a key outdoor recreation project is crucial for the town and we look forward to being able to further continue the development of such dedicated cycleways and pathways.”

Municipal District Manager, Angela McAllen also praised all those who have been involved in the project, and pointed to the importance of having such projects shovel-ready in terms of design and planning, to be able to take advantage when national funding for projects such as these become available.

“This is a key link between the Muckross and Kenmare estates, and with fantastic views along the river, it is something that young and old can enjoy in a safe, vehicle-free setting,” she said. “We are committed to improving the cycling and walking provision for residents and visitors to this county, in keeping with the objectives of the County Development Plan and the desire for greater access for all ages.”

Fr Niall Howard finished with a blessing as part of the opening and acknowledged the importance of a quiet space for walking and cycling.
