Following months of anticipation, home, leisure and gardens retailer, The Range, has confirmed plans to open a new store in Kerry this October.

.

It will be located at Manor West Retail Park in Tralee, and is due to open on Friday, October 22.

After months of building works and preparations the new 40,000 sq. ft shop will be located at the former Debenhams store. The move will create 80 full and part-time jobs - positive news in such challenging times for the retail sector, and the new store is expected to be a fantastic boost to the already popular shopping park.

The new store will provide great value products across 18 different departments from essential cleaning supplies, petcare and DIY accessories to stylish and much-loved home décor, furniture, and kitchen and dining selections. The Tralee store will also open with the amazing Christmas shop, for which The Range is renowned, selling trees, decorations, lights and much more to make this festive season even more special.

“We in Manor West are delighted to welcome The Range to Tralee and the wider Kerry area," Derek Rusk, Centre Manager at Manor West, said.

"It is fantastic to have one of the fastest growing international retailers join our line-up of stores. I am sure the store will be a massive success, providing excellent value and shopping choice to the customer, helping to cement Manor West’s reputation as one of the foremost retail parks in the country. Welcome!!”

The store will be operating in line with current COVID-19 Government guidelines when it opens.

Killarney native Patrick O’Sullivan Greene will launch his second book in the Great Southern Killarney on December 2.

O’Sullivan Greene explains Éamon de Valera’s mission to gain recognition for the newly formed Irish republic in New York in 1919 in his latest book ‘Revolution at the Waldorf: America and the Irish War of Independence’.

Without American recognition and funding the young Irish Government was sure to fail against the might of the British Empire and the book tells the story of how de Valera and Ireland-based Michael Collins – much to the defiance of the British authorities at Dublin Castle – got the new State off the ground.

O’Sullivan grew up in New Street and is now based in Beaufort after a career in finance took him all over the world including Dublin, London, New York and France.

“Killarney is the natural place for me to launch the book,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“There will be an interesting mix of people there.”

O’Sullivan Greene published his first book, ‘Crowdfunding the Revolution: The First Dáil Loan and the Battle for Irish Independence’, in 2020.

One community group have shown that they care deeply for others by crafting handmade blankets for charity.

Using their range of skills and some colourful wool, members of Kilcummin Community Care worked together to make blankets for service users on the Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus.

“Each blanket is assigned as a personal gift to the clients using the Cancer Link Bus and is kept by them,” Kate Fleming, Chairperson of Kilcummin Community Care, said.

The knitting of the squares to make the blankets began at a gathering in the Rose Hotel in 2018. It was a gathering of different volunteer groups.

The Kerry Cork Cancer Health Link Bus were requesting knitted squares to make blankets for the clients who were using their facilities, she explained.

“Kilcummin Community Care were knitting at the time, so it was decided to help out this worthy cause. We received donations of wool from people in the parish and surrounding areas. Kilcummin ICA also got involved in the efforts.”

During the two years of COVID-19, members of both organisations continued to knit and are still knitting to the present day.
