Charity calendar displays the splendour of Kerry

A KERRY fish shop chain is selling calendars featuring top class scenes of Kerry and all proceeds will go towards the St Vincent de Paul ( SVP) Society here in Kerry.
Some 2,500 calendars will be on sale at Quinlan's Fish Shops and Seafood Bar which highlights monthly photos taken across the county and which were posted by entrants in a Facebook competition called 'Visions of Kerry'.
The overall winner, Johanna King from The Lake, Cromane, is featured on the cover page with her photo 'White Sands Lake'.
"Congratulations to everyone who entered and to everyone who made it into the calendar. They are all fantastic photos - we have a gorgeous county and it deserves to be shown in all its splendour," Johanna states.
Meanwhile, Quinlan's Fish Shops and Seafood Bar owner, Liam Quinlan, says the initiative was timed to coincide with the significant challenges SVP faces leading into Christmas.
"We have designed, printed, and produced these calendars with all the money raised going to the St Vincent De Paul. We are privileged to be supporting such a noble charitable organisation and the work they do in Kerry," he states.
Calendars can be purchased in any of the Quinlan's Fish Shops in Kerry or at the company's Seafood Bar in Killarney.
