Kelliher’s Garage – the county’s only Toyota dealership – is holding an open day at the Gleneagle Hotel on Sunday.

The full range of hybrid Toyota cars will be on show and the Tralee-based garage is inviting members of the public to attend the roadshow and take a test drive in one of the many cars on display.

The show is part of an extended Toyota hybrid demonstration weekend at Kelliher’s Garage this weekend.

The three-day festival of motoring gets underway tomorrow (Friday) at their Tralee headquarters when a new five-year sponsorship deal with Kerry GAA will be announced. Kerry football and hurling stars will be at the event from 12 noon.

On Saturday, Kelliher’s Garage will host the first of its hybrid days in the county where anyone who signs up for a test drive on the day will be entered in a draw for a chance of winning €2,000 off their new Toyota purchase.

The entire road show moves to The Gleneagle Hotel on Sunday morning. The Killarney event runs between 11am and 4pm.

“We are proud and delighted to be able to bring and demonstrate the new generation Toyota hybrid product to the whole county, north, south, east or west,” Dealer Principal, Tim Kelliher, said.

“Our five-year agreement with Kerry GAA Football and Hurling gives Kelliher's an opportunity to give a little back to our county with both codes developing a ‘hybrid game plan’ which will surely guarantee success. We invite the public to call in, chat to us, be inquisitive about hybrid and take a test drive in a relaxed and local environment.”

Visitors to the Killarney event who take test drives will also be entered in the draw for €2000 off their new Toyota purchase.

With less and less people carrying lose change around, one local group have now embraced a new technology to make donating much easier.

For their annual Christmas fundraiser, the Killarney Conference of the St Vincent De Paul Society will have a special collection bucket that will allow supporters to use their bank card to make a donation.

The Society’s annual churchgate collection will be held on the weekend of December 11/12 at places of worship in the town and surrounding areas. This year’s collection has be renamed as ‘Giving Sunday’ and makes a return after the pandemic forced the cancellation of last year’s fundraiser.

“We are moving towards a cashless society,” explained Killarney Conference President Breda O’Dwyer. “You can tap and swipe your card to make a donation.”

Breda added that they are hoping to have the buckets ready by next week in time for the collection.

She said the local conference of the St Vincent De Paul Society has seen a marked increase in the number of families it is helping mainly caused by the increase in the cost of fuel and home heating products.

The annual St Vincent De Paul Society’s Christmas Jumper Day, in association with Radio Kerry is scheduled for December 10.
