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

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.”
