FOLLOWING on from a summer of sold-out shows, Kerry super group Walking on Cars have announced their last 2017 date this Christmas at the INEC Killarney on December 22.

The band are made up of childhood friends Pa Sheehy vocalist, acoustic guitar and piano, Sorcha Durham on piano, Dan Devane on lead guitar, Paul Flannery on bass and Evan Hadnett on the drums have been together since 2010.

On the day that the band announced their album release in Ireland last year, it was the only album pre-order higher than Adele on any iTunes store anywhere in the world – a testament to the band’s status in their home country and the story spreading to the UK and internationally. Released in 2016 “Everything This Way” has since gone top five in seven countries and top twenty in a further twenty-three on the iTunes charts.

The past year has been an epic one for the Dingle band as they were awarded the prestigious European Border Breakers Award following in the footsteps of previous winners including Mumford and Sons, Adele, Kodaline & Dolores O’Riordan.

Walking on Cars will play their final Irish show of 2017 at the INEC Killarney and this is a show not to be missed as 2018 is set to be even better for the band!

Tickets are available from this Friday, September 29, at 10am from www.inec.ie 064-6671555 or Ticketmaster outlets nationwide, 0818 719 300, and online, www.ticketmaster.ie

It is just over a week since new restrictions were announced by the Government in an another effort to curb the spread of COVID-19.

In our latest online poll we asked our readers if they had reduced their social contacts over the course of the last week.

An overwhelming 62.90% said they had reduced their level of contacts with people.

Interestingly, 37.10% of people had made no change to their lifestyle, but they could have been extra cautious already.

A tiny minority – just 1.61% – said they increased their social contacts over the last week.

Local students went to great efforts on Friday last to highlight a very important message about inclusion.

Staff and students in Killarney Community College came together for ‘Stand Up Awareness Week’ as part of a national campaign where second-level schools take a stand against homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying.

All staff wore a rainbow colour and students wore rainbow coloured accessories to show their support for the campaign as Killarney Community College is a diverse, inclusive, accepting, and welcoming safe space for everyone.

The majority of students made a particularly great effort in terms of wearing rainbow coloured accessories were awarded house points.

During the week, the LGBTI+ flag was hanging proudly in the school canteen. Transition Years decorated the General Purpose area with informative posters, and in SPHE classes, students learned about LGBTI+ terminology and history.

“It’s important that school is a safe and inclusive place for anyone attending regardless of their race, sex, religion or sexuality,” Principal, Stella Loughnane, said.

“I’m delighted that our school community marked the occasion and brought great colour while highlighting a very important message. One of the key words of our mission statement is inclusion making this awareness day a very apt one.”
