Killorglin Chamber Alliance
Making a positive social impact
Our aim is to be at the core of our community where businesses, individuals, clubs and groups come together. Through our collaborative approach, we can achieve more for the town. One of our goals is to make a positive social impact, through our working group projects, partnerships, initiatives and events.
Throughout 2018 Killorglin’s community collaborated to shape a Socio-Economic Plan for the town, reflecting an ambition for enhanced liveability, quality of life and quality of place in the town and its environs.
Killorglin is blessed with a very talented and committed community and I am delighted that the following
have joined the KCA committee: Jens Bachem (Reeks District), Jennifer Boyle (Access 4 All), Darragh
Burns – Deputy Chairman (Burns Auctioneers), Fergus Clifford – Treasurer (Bank of Ireland), Brian Jones
(Eurospar), Denis McCarthy (Fexco), Liz McCarthy (Fexco), Tim Moroney – Secretary (Astellas), Josie
O’Donnell (O’Donnells Bakery) and Stephen O’Sullivan – Chair (Fexco).
During the next months and years, we will be supporting and implementing several projects for the
business, cultural, environmental, youth, the educational and social benefit of Killorglin, some of which you
will hear about them in our latest newsletter which can be downloaded here.
We will be working closely with over 80 community organisations and businesses. We are also greatly
supported by Kerry County Council and South Kerry Development Partnership in our work.
Together we have ambition for enhanced liveability, quality of life and quality of place in Killorglin and
its environs. We look forward to innovating and collaborating to create a socially diverse, economically
vibrant and sustainable future for Killorglin.
