The Europe Hotel & Resort has today (Wednesday) reopened its doors to welcome friends old and new for stays at the five-star multi-award winning resort on the shores of picturesque Loch Lein.

Over the past few months, the team have kept busy behind the scenes, taking the opportunity to develop a wide range of measures that will ensure the safety and enjoyment of their valued guests as much as possible.

The hotel has invested in the introduction of new technologies, and all of the team are fully briefed and trained in best practices to ensure the safety, health and welfare of fellow colleagues, clients, visitors and the general public.

“While we would love to keep 'The Europe's Experience' as normal as possible, we do have to make some changes to the way we operate and our commitment to hygiene and cleanliness remains of paramount importance," Managing Director, Michael Brennan, said.

"Luckily, The Europe is a large hotel with spacious public areas and extensive grounds, so I am confident that we can ensure compliance with all guidelines.

Above all, we want our guests to have a relaxed and enjoyable stay with us. In this new era for hospitality, some necessary changes are required to keep each other safe; however, rest assured that The Europe's famous warm welcome and the friendly familiar faces of our team remain unchanged.”

Well-known Dalton’s Avenue woman Eileen Switzer has been named as the Honorary President of Killarney Valley Athletic Club in recognition of her work as a volunteer.

The club held its annual awards night on Friday night last.

As well as presenting awards to club members in recognition of their achievements at home and abroad they decided to honour Mrs Switzer for her “lifetime of volunteering to the community, to sport, to youth and for championing diversity and inclusion”.

“Eileen has been an advocate, a coach and an administrator in the sport of athletics for over 60 years in the town of Killarney, Kerry and beyond,” said club chair Jerry Griffin.

Eileen and her husband Frank have dedicated their lives to the community games and athletics in the greater Killarney area.

“I enjoy, but I don’t like, all the limelight,” she told the Killarney Advertiser.

“I like to watch newcomers as they come up through the ranks, many of the Community Games people of the past are now running the committee.”

In a life time dedicated to volunteerism in Killarney Eileen has helped sports like golf, pitch and putt and badminton grow.  She was also heavily involved in the local Irish dancing scene and remains a great supporter of Kerry Parents and Friends.
