Killarney Cycling Club marked the resumption of club activities with the launch of their new kit for 2021-23. The new gear is part of a fresh sponsorship deal with a group of local sponsors led by Killarney Waste Disposal (KWD).
At the launch, the Managing Director of KWD, Seán Murphy, presented a special County Champion’s edition of the kit to Conor Kissane who currently holds the County Championship title.
Speaking at the event, Seán said that he was delighted to represent the group of sponsors and that KWD was committed to supporting the club.
“Killarney Cycling Club is a great asset to the region and represents Killarney very well,” he said. “While it produces elite racers like Conor on the one hand, it is also very inclusive and diverse, and puts equal emphasis on every level and type of cyclist.”
The club’s Chairman, Mark Murphy, thanked KWD and all the other sponsors and said that the club would gradually be getting back to full activities as restrictions permit.
“We especially want to cater for anyone who has taken up an interest in cycling during the pandemic but might be hesitant about the prospect of joining a club. In that regard, we can offer a taster session to anyone interested and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or through our Facebook page.”
Along with KWD, the club’s other sponsors are: Ahern’s Garage Castleisland; Aqua Design, Killorglin; Autopoint Motor Group, Tralee; the Big Little Bike Shop, Killarney; Kayne’s Bar and Bistro, Killarney; Killarney Coffee Roasters; Killarney Credit Union; Leane’s Kitchens and Bedrooms, Killarney; REC-Renewable Energy Centre, Killarney; and the Ross Hotel and the Killarney Park Hotel in Killarney.

The last team out at the Killarney Celtic Golf Classic carded 106 points to overtake all who went before at an entertaining fundraiser staged over two days at the pristine Beaufort Golf Club.
From Friday to late Saturday afternoon, the imposing tally of 101 points registered by the O’Donoghue Ring Hotel Group team of James McCarthy, Brian McCarthy, Cian Harte and Gavin Murray looked like being a winning one. The got a scare when the Spa GAA team almost caught them; Seánie Kelliher, Donal Cronin, John Cahill and Seán Devane ultimately carded a great score of 100 points to go second.
With the O’Donoghue Ring Hotel Group quartet hanging on for victory, it was all down to Kissane Meats and Pat O’Neill, John England, Tony Sugrue and Donie Brosnan snatched first place by hitting a weekend high of 106 points.
The Nearest to the Pin was won by Aaron Jones of the Dawn Meats team while the Longest Drive came from the club of Mark O’Shea who was representing Tom Meehan’s team.
Speaking at the prizegiving, Killarney Celtic Vice Chairman Paul Sherry thanked all involved for contributing to another hugely successful fundraising day for the club.
“Killarney Celtic is indebted to its members who volunteered over the two days,” he said, “to those who sponsored the prizes, entered teams, took signs, provided the fruit and chocolate and of course, most importantly, played on Friday and Saturday.
“We also must thank the staff at Beaufort, both working on the course and those in the clubhouse.
“A sign of a good golf classic is the number of returning teams and sponsors and already a number have committed to join us again in August/September 2022.”
