A new vaccination clinic is set to open in Sheahan’s Pharmacy Main St on Friday.

The long-established family pharmacy in the heart of Killarney is ready to start administrating the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to over 50s who are still waiting for a jab.

A new clinic has been established on Bohereencaol to the rear of Sheahan’s Pharmacy.
Bookings will be possible via a newly launched online portal which is believed to be a first for any Killarney-based pharmacy.

Members of the public are invited to register for an appointment and even those outside the over 50 age group can book and they will be called once their cohort time goes live.

“Staff from Sheahan’s Pharmacy are delighted to welcome its first vaccination participants at our modern clinic which is just behind the pharmacy premises on Main Street,” William Sheahan told the Killarney Advertiser. “We are starting with the Johnson & Johnson Vaccine and will have 40 slots available in the next two weeks but are welcoming all ages to register interest on our website and we will contact them when we are able to vaccinate that cohort as more vaccines come on stream in the coming weeks.”
Other vaccines, including the Pfizer version, are expected to be released to pharmacies as the government ramps up its vaccine roll out.

Members of the public can book a slot on Sheahan’s website: www.sheahanspharmacy.ie or where this is not possible they are welcome to call the pharmacy 064-6631113 to make the appointment.

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.
