Published

It's time to cheer on two talented girls who have been selected to represent their country next year.

Emma Rose Byrne and Katlyn Moynihan will compete at the Cheerleading World Championships in Orlando Florida next April.

They will represent Ireland in the performance cheer category hip hop.

Emma and Katlyn have been training with Killarney Scorchers Cheerleading from a young age and both girls still train on a weekly basis with the club as well as volunteering their time back to their younger peers.

"Emma and Katlyn are an inspiration to all their team mates," coach Hayley Murphy told the Killarney Advertiser.

"The girls are working hard on their routine and will travel to the UK in the New Year to train with hip hop World Champions ADA Dark Angels UK."

Emma and Katlyn are seeking sponsorship to help assist towards their competition expenses, she added.

They have started weekly hip hop classes for adults on Fridays from 6.45pm to 7.45pm. The classes will run every Friday in Killarney Scorchers Cheerleading new premises on Muckross Road.

This will help subsidise some of the competition expenses the girls face, she explained.

"I am very proud of both Emma and Katlyn, they are an inspiration to their teammates. I am proud to have coached two hard working young girls who have grown into two wonderful young ladies. They have given so much to the club and their younger peers. I hope everyone supports both Katlyn and Emma on their journey to World Championships."

Jumpers have helped to raise almost €10k so far – but now it’s a very special jersey which could drive the fundraising numbers up!

A Kerry football jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team is up for grabs via a fundraising link once a donation is made to the Presents for Palliative fundraiser.

On Friday eight local schools including Holy Cross Mercy, Killarney Community College, Presentation Monastery, Lissivigeen, St Brendan’s College, St Brigid’s, St Francis Special School, and St Oliver’s
swapped their uniforms for their most colourful festive gear with funds going to help the amazing services in the Palliative Care Unit/Kerry Hospice Foundation.

“The day took place across the schools involved last Friday (December 2) and looks like it has been a success,” teacher Elaine Moynihan from St Brendan’s College told the Killarney Advertiser.

“The donations from the schools are still being counted but students look to be on their way towards making their goal of €10k.”

The iDonate ‘Fundraising For Kerry Hospice Foundation’ has been very helpful in this regard, she added.

“Anyone who donates via the link and leaves their name will be in with a chance to win a Kerry jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team which will be presented to them before Christmas by a couple of members of the team.

“This was organised by the students involved in the fundraiser as a way to say thanks, and give back, to the members of the community who have gotten involved in the event – the link is live until December 18 and the draw will be made the following day.”
