Golden years glisten for Donie and Ann 50 years on

The years and the leaves are turning gold this autumn for Donie and Ann Cremin, Ardaneanig, Killarney, who celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with a small family gathering at the home of their daughter, Denise, on September 19.

The entire family was unable to be there but the silver lining is that Donie and Ann will have a few extra gilded get-togethers to look forward to down the line.

The golden couple were married in St John’s Church, Ballybunion, on September 19, 1970, and held their wedding reception at the Banna Beach Hotel.

Rahillys and friends raise €2,541 for cancer

The Rahilly family of Knockacorrin, Scartaglen, teamed up with Scartaglen GAA Club on Wednesday October 1 to present €2,541 to Comfort For Chemo Kerry through a community sporting gesture that grew from brotherly ties linking Scart and Chicago.

The fundraiser ‘Score a point for Comfort For Chemo Kerry’ this year replaced the annual Jack Rahilly Memorial U12 Blitz which unfortunately could not go ahead due to Covid-19.

The blitz was the brainchild of Jack’s brother, Mickey Rahilly, who donated money towards the memorial trophy. Jack died suddenly in 2005. Mickey passed away in 2019. This would have been the fourth year of the blitz he had spearheaded.
