The Killarney Advertiser is on the move!




After 12 years in High Street, the Killarney Advertiser is moving to KC Print.

CLOSING: The Sam McGuire made a special visit to the Killarney Advertiser office on High Street this week. Pictured is Senior Kerry Football Manager Jack O’Connor with Editor Michelle Crean in what is the last official photo in the office.

NEW LOCATION: The Killarney Advertiser will move to its new location at sister company KC Print in Upper Lissivigeen.

The ‘Advertiser’ is relocating just 10 minutes from High Street to Upper Lissivigeen.

Killarney’s ‘Favourite Friday Read' is heading towards its 50th birthday next March and the move ensures that it will continue to be the leading local publication in town.

The ‘Advertiser’ team consistently looks to improve the magazine every week and change with the times. During COVID the ‘Advertiser’ invested in its technology and website to maintain its service to customers and readers.

Enhancements to our online booking portal for anniversaries and classifieds means many customers can place their notice from any tablet, phone or laptop.

"The town centre office will be missed. Relocating to our sister company is going to be great with designers, journalists, and printers all under the one roof. It will also assist with our focus on being more environmentally friendly,” Aidan Quirke, General Manager, said.

KC Print, located in a state-of-the-art purpose-built production site in Upper Lissivigeen, is one Ireland's leading trade printers with 30 staff producing a range of magazines, books, stationary and menus.

"It’s an exciting move for us. To have the creators and the production team together will give more flexibility on how we deliver Killarney’s No. 1 weekly read. We also want to thank our readers and advertisers for their continued support.” 

The new office also has ample parking for customers. Our online booking system for anniversaries and classifieds is available on our website.

Our customer service team is led by Elaine Shine and she is available by telephone and email to assist customers with their queries and placement of anniversaries.

With a cast of over 50 it’s no small undertaking – but that won’t deter one panto group who are only too happy to get back on stage this weekend.

It’s been two years since they staged a show due to COVID but the Marian Players Rathmore are rearing to go tomorrow night (Saturday) with their hilarious show ‘Dame Annie Goes West’.

A medley of comedy and colour, combined with music and dance, locals from both sides of the border have been working together to make it a great production.

“We’re very excited, we can’t wait! It’s great to be back,” Mary Hickey told the Killarney Advertiser.

“They [the cast] got together in October and they’re at it since.”

Val Moynihan is the “genius behind it”, she added, and it’s produced by her son Brian Hickey, and co-written with Eilish Coakley.

She said that they have loads working in the background also doing the stage curtains, lighting and making costumes amongst other tasks.

“It’s a pantomime without the pantomime in the background! It’s a whole community effort both sides of the border.”

Evening shows start at 7.30pm tomorrow (Saturday) and again Sunday (January 29) at 3pm.

Mid-week shows continue on Wednesday next (February 1) at 7.30pm, Thursday (February 2) at 7.30pm and also Saturday (February 4) at 7.30pm and Sunday (February 5) at 3pm.

The booking office (085 2031730) will be open every day from 2pm to 6pm to reserve seats and collect tickets and is located adjacent to the community centre, next to Christy’s Take Away.

Seats may be reserved over the phone too and paid for using a bank card. All proceeds are going to Kerry Parents & Friends Association.
