Toyota has closed out 2021 as the most popular car brand both in Ireland and in Kerry.

With 12.44% share of the passenger car market and four of its models (RAV4, Corolla, C-HR and Yaris) in the top ten best-sellers list, this success underpins the continued popularity of Toyota self-charging hybrids.

Tim Kelliher, of Kellihers Toyota Tralee – the sole Toyota dealer for the Kingdom has welcomed the news.

“The stand out fact for me is that the vast majority of all the Toyota cars we sold in Kerry last year were self-charging hybrids. Our customers trusted us and trusted Toyota years ago in the switch away from diesel and that trust is now paying off, with lower running and maintenance costs along with higher resale values, the three core principles of Toyota ownership. We here at Kelliher’s look forward to supplying the county with superior Toyota products in the years ahead,” he said.

Toyota sold an impressive 13,053 passenger cars in 2021, which represents more than a 30% year-on-year increase.
Toyota look forward to another successful year in 2022 and the team at Kellihers are excited for the arrival of the bZ4X, the first zero emission full battery electric car in June. For more information on the full Toyota range, contact Sales in Kellihers on 066-710000 or check out www.kellihers.ie

Tributes have been paid to Peggy O’Callaghan, who was laid to rest on Tuesday of this week.

Peggy played a central role in all activities related to Kilcummin parish. She passed away peacefully at her home on Friday, January 7.

Peggy and her husband Michael founded Kilcummin Scor in 1978 – the music and drama arm of the local GAA club.

“It afforded the opportunity to females to participate in club activities long before ladies’ football was initiated and it brought many people into the club, many of whom remained involved in different capacities over the years,” said a club statement.

“She has left us a wonderful legacy and will be remembered fondly by those lucky enough to have met her.”

Peggy will be sadly missed by her husband Michael, sons Diarmuid and Shane, daughters-in-law Trisha and Áine, grandchildren Dara, Caoimhe, Donnacha, Siún and Éabha, brothers Seánie and Frank, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews, extended family, neighbours and friends.

Plans to link the Monsignor O’Flaherty Road with New St via a new road at Bohereen na Goun have been announced by Killarney Municipal District.

Town engineer John Ahern told Wednesday’s Killarney Municipal District Meeting between elected councillors and senior council executives that Kerry County Council intends to make a compulsory purchase order on lands that will link the two town centre streets.

If plans come to fruition it will be possible for motorists on New St to get to the top of High St, adjacent to the Killarney Advertiser’s town centre office, without travelling through the town centre. The plan was first mooted as far back as 2016.

The announcement caught councillors off guard, it was one of the last topics discussed at the four-hour meeting, but it was broadly welcomed by all.

“This access will change the dynamic of traffic movement in the town forever,” said Cllr Niall Kelleher.

Further details of the surprise project are set to be revealed to elected members over the next four to six weeks.
