Photography can be an lonely hobby - especially with the current COVID restrictions in place - but one local group are calling for new members to join them online.

As their new season begins, Killarney Camera Club are planning to meet up via Zoom and are hoping a few new faces will join them.

In September 2001 a group of photography enthusiasts formed Killarney Photographic Society and it was later renamed Killarney Camera Club in 2006.

Their aims are to promote and organise photographic activities for members, to provide a forum for members to pursue their photographic interests, and to co-operate with other organisations in the promotion and organisation of photographic activities.

"Our members come from a wide range of backgrounds but we all share a common hobby; the love and pursuit of photography," John Keane, PRO of Killarney Camera Club, told the Killarney Advertiser.

"Some of us have years of experience while more among us are beginners. Whichever category we belong to we continue to learn more about photography through sharing our knowledge and experience with our fellow members and through the activities in which we participate," he said.

"This year we face the same difficulties as every other organisation and club with COVID restrictions. We have already started with our first Zoom meeting and hope to continue with outings and presentations from a pool of nationwide photographers. We welcome new members no matter what your photographic experience is. It’s also a great way to meet people on our outings. We have reduced our membership prices this year to €40 for waged and €20 for pensioners, students and unwaged as we will have less expenses."

Anyone interested can contact the club by emailing secretary@killarneycameraclub.ie.

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
