The show must go online for the 2021 Kerry Wedding Show!

Published

Organisers of the annual Kerry Wedding Show are not going to let lockdown stop them from bringing wedding suppliers and couples together, safely, and have instead planned to go virtual for the very first time this Sunday.

The award winning Kerry Wedding Show will be hosted online for the first time as Radio Kerry and The Wedding Wizard have come together to create the virtual version of the event at a time when holding public events is not permitted due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Event planners, wedding suppliers and couples face challenges due to ongoing Government safety restrictions.

“By offering the opportunity to move the Kerry Wedding Show online we are doing what we can to facilitate a safe environment to bring suppliers and couples together so that the business of planning can continue,” organiser Melanie O'Sullivan said.

The event will take place on its originally planned date of this Sunday, January 24, but instead of its usual location of the INEC, Killarney it will be an online exhibition featuring over 40 wedding exhibitors, panel discussions, a fun speed-networking session and an innovative Bridal Fashion Showcase. There will be special offers, discounts and prizes to be won on the day.

Couples can book online to attend the show free of charge, on www.radiokerry.ie/kerryweddingshowtickets. More details on the show, exhibitors, prizes and what to expect on the day are available on Facebook and Instagram: Kerry Wedding Show.

Nicole Coffey of Nicole’s Hair Salon on St Anne’s was inspired to run a fundraiser for a women’s refuge after hearing distressing stories from some of her clients.

On Saturday last she offered a wash and blow-dry to clients and rather than charging them for the her services her customers made a donation to Adapt Women’s Refuge in Tralee.

Nicole was inspired to run the charity day because a lot of her regular clients opened up to her while they were getting their hair done.

The timing of her charity day was poignant as it came just days after Ashling Murphy was murdered while out for a run in her own town of Tullamore.

“People open up while I do their hair, many of them would not know that there is a refuge in Kerry,” she told the Killarney Advertiser. “I have experience with clients who are struggling. I had this idea to create more awareness for Adapt.”

She raised €2,000 for Adapt and the cheque was handed over to the Tralee-based charity on Thursday night this week.

Such was the success of her charity day Nicole worked from 7am to 7pm and as well as cash donations customers also donated vouchers and care packs to the charity.
