Ms Moynihan previously trained and worked as a state-enroleld nurse in the UK, and she started working in Killarney Nursing Home in 2012.

Speaking after the event, Nursing Homes Ireland CEO Tadhg Daly was full of praise for Killarney Nursing Home and, of course, Ms Moynihan and Mr Flynn.

Congratulations to Marie for her magnificent achievement in winning the Carer of the Year Award," Mr Daly said. "Congratulations also to Barth for reaching the final and being recognised for his excellence in the nursing discipline. The residents and staff of Killarney Nursing Home and the wider Killarney community should be immensely proud of Marie and Barth for their fantastic achievements."
