Yule love Christmas in Killarney line-up

Published

WELL, we campaigned for it to continue and we are delighted to confirm that the Christmas in Killarney Festival is going ahead – despite fears in recent months that a €30,000 cash shortfall could lead to its cancellation.

But it’s full steam ahead for the hugely popular festival, which is now in its 13th year.
And the 2017 Christmas in Killarney line-up is set to be the most magical yet, according to organisers.
On hand to launch the festival were the Killarney Gobnaits – familiar to many from their antics during the St Patrick’s Festival Killarney.

The quartet even made a batch of Christmas puddings and mince pies especially for the occasion.
Kick-starting the Christmas in Killarney celebrations will be highly anticipated Magic Parade, when Santa and his elves along with favourite Disney characters will travel through the streets of Killarney, on Saturday, November 25, commencing at 6pm, for the traditional turning on of the Christmas lights ceremony at the Market Cross.

There will be so many opportunities for families to see Santa in the Magic Parade in the run-up to Christmas season, on Saturday, December 2, 9, 16 and 23, at 6pm. Santa and his elves will return for the grand finale of the parades on New Year’s Eve at 6pm for anyone who did not make it home to Killarney before Christmas.

The dates for the very popular Dine Killarney are confirmed: Thursday, November 30, and Thursday, December 7, dining times from 6pm to 11.30pm.

In keeping with tradition, The Gobnaits will be hosting a special Christmas in the 50s quiz, on Thursday, December 7, in The Laurels ‘Hall’, Market Cross at 8pm. Audience participation is compulsory with dress code 1950s.

As part of the exciting festival, this year’s Christmas Craft and food Fair at the Killarney Outlet Centre takes place on November 26 between 12pm and 6pm.

What do roses, wrens, King Puck, fairies and Santa Claus have in common? Well, all now feature in a new children’s book co-written by a mother and son.

The new illustrated poetry collection for children, ‘A Very Kerry Year’, by Killorglin mother and son, Jacinta and Conor Browne, has been published just in time for Christmas.

And all proceeds will be donated to Comfort for Chemo, an organisation whose mission it is to build and equip a chemotherapy unit for the people of Kerry.

The charity is close to the young author’s heart as Conor himself was undergoing cancer treatment while writing this book.

With original poetry by the mother and son, the book also has another separate family connection as the talented illustrators are local artists, father-daughter duo Con and Rochelle Lucey, with each page awash with colour and beautiful drawings.

“I know first-hand how important it is to have a comfortable environment while receiving chemotherapy,” Conor said.

‘A Very Kerry Year’ is currently available for €12 from The Crystal Cave and the Reeks District Tourist Office in Killorglin and will soon be available in many more outlets throughout the county.
