The Glenbeigh Hotel has been ranked as one of the county’s top establishments after winning the ‘Best Gastro Pub in Kerry’ at the Irish Restaurant Awards.
The Munster Regional Final for the 2019 Irish Restaurant Awards took place in the Strand Hotel, Limerick, on Wednesday (March 27), where awards were presented to the country’s leading chefs, restaurants and pubs.
Over 550 people attended the third of four regional events, where the top establishments in each county were named.
All of those who won at county level will now compete for the Regional and All-Ireland titles, which will be announced at the Irish Restaurant Awards in the Clayton Hotel, Dublin on Monday, May 13.

Chef Noel Dennehy, Manager Karen O’Sullivan, and Manager Brian Keary, attended the awards.

“It’s a huge honour for the hotel to be recognised,” Brian said.
“The whole team has worked very hard over the last 12 months to improve and build on our service and cuisine – this award is a testament to the amazing chefs and staff we are lucky to have at The Glenbeigh Hotel – I’m delighted for each and every one of them.”

Now in its 11th year, the Irish Restaurant Awards continues to showcase the incredible food that is on offer in the cafes, pubs and restaurants of Ireland, as well as recognising the teams behind these establishments and the hard work and dedication that they put in, Adrian Cummins, Chief Executive of the Restaurants Association of Ireland (RAI) added.

“With well over 90,000 nominations received from the public this year, the standard for the judging process was higher than ever.”

Gale force winds associated with Storm Barra, with gusts of over 130 km/h, are continuing to cause damage to the electricity network, currently affecting more than  38,000 homes, farms and businesses across the country.

The damage is mainly attributable to fallen trees on overhead lines as a result of the high winds. ESB Networks’ crews will continue to work late into the evening to restore power to those affected, where safe to do so, but unfortunately, some customers will remain without electricity overnight.

Since early morning and despite challenging conditions, ESB Networks have continued to restore power to customers across the country.
With the storm still crossing the country, more damage and interruptions to supply can be expected. ESB Networks reminds the public that if you come across fallen wires or damaged electricity network, never, ever touch or approach these as they may be LIVE and extremely dangerous.

All internal resources and contractors remain on alert and are responding to electricity outages once it is safe to do so. With a Red weather warning in the Southwest in effect until 9 pm tonight, and Co Clare until 1 am on Wednesday morning, some of our crews may not be mobilised on the ground until the worst of the severe weather passes.

We are advising all those impacted by outages that they should prepare to be without electricity overnight and into tomorrow, with some customers potentially without power beyond that. It is very important that any customers who use electrically powered medical devices should contact their healthcare professional to make alternative arrangements if necessary.

In addition to safety procedures associated with power restoration, crews continue to work under all national Covid-19 protocols with respect to hygiene, social distancing and PPE.

Customers without power can check for updates on when their fault is expected to be repaired at www.powercheck.ie

County Kerry is now bearing the full brunt of Storm Barra and the Kerry Severe Weather Coordination Team reminds everyone that a Status RED weather warning, the highest such warning, remains in place for Kerry until 9pm.

Kerry County Council is advising people to avoid the Ballycasheen area of Killarney

Due to the significant risk to life and property, members of the public should remain indoors and not travel for the rest of the evening. Everyone is advised to follow updates on weather warnings from Met Éireann as well as the local media and social media.

There are an increasing number of roads closed or blocked because of fallen trees, electricity poles and spot flooding. Council crews will respond to issues when it is safe to do so and with the assistance of other agencies where required.

The N71 road at the Suspension Bridge in Kenmare remains closed to traffic as does the N70 Tralee to Castlemaine Road at the hairpin bends. There are a significant number of local and regional and local roads blocked or partially blocked by fallen trees, electricity poles and debris in all parts of the county so travel should be avoided.

The Ballycasheen Road in Killarney and Main Street in Ballybunion (and the surrounding area) should be avoided due to concerns about potential falling debris.

The Council’s emergency contact number is 066 7183588 and it will be operational through this evening and tonight.

Fallen electricity wires/poles and power outages should be reported to ESB Networks on 1800 372 999.
