 Speaking to Pa Laide , CEO Cara Credit Union “ we understand the college years are a very expensive time and often place a huge financial burden on students and their families. While our education awards don’t solve the problem, they do go some way towards easing the financial pressure. Cara Credit Union has never been more relevant for students, with our new Current Account and globally accepted Mastercard Debit Card we can now serve our students when they move onto college.  Students up to the age of 25 and in a full-time course of studies are eligible for fee concessions. We also offer a low interest rate loan for students who need a loan. For parent who have saved up for college we have a low rate Saver’s Loan, which gives parents the option to “spend it or save it” on loans of €5,000 or more. Most people find it easier to repay a loan than it is to save so they borrow on the strength of their savings. With our saver’s loan they still have their savings at the end of the loan plus they have the flexibility of knowing that they can repay their loan anytime without penalty and they have peace of mind of free life cover on both their loans and their savings with our Loan Protection and Life Savings Insurance.  ” 
Applications for the Education and Dan Kellegher Awards will be accepted from 1st August – 30th September 2020.

Kerry Airport Unveiled As Lead Sponsor of Basketball In The Kingdom For 2020
 
BASKETBALL at juvenile and senior level in Kerry has been given a major boost at the start of the new season with the announcement that Kerry Airport has become the lead sponsor of the sport in the county.
 
The Kerry Area Basketball Board (KABB) season has just commenced with over 300 teams competing in over 50 League, Cup and Plate competitions. These competitions will now be known as the Kerry Airport League, Kerry Airport Cup and Kerry Airport Plate Competitions at all levels from Juvenile up to Senior in both Girls / Women and Boys / Men.
 
The CEO of Kerry Airport, John Mulhern, said: “We are celebrating our 50th anniversary at Kerry Airport and over the coming year, we are reaching out to communities throughout the county to show our appreciation of what they do for others. Basketball – in clubs and schools – is at the heart of so many towns and villages in Kerry. Hundreds of people play, coach and coordinate games, camps and activities from Ballybunion to Caherciveen, from Kenmare to Dingle, from Farranfore to Glenbeigh. Most of these wonderful people are volunteers who invest so much time and energy year after year for the love of the sport and to ensure that youngsters have a healthy social outlet. We are proud to play our part and we are looking forward to working closely with KABB in promoting and developing the sport at club level into the future.”
 
The partnership between Kerry Airport and KABB will also embrace the representative Kerry Juvenile Girls and Boys Teams from Under 14 to Under 17 as well as the Juvenile Academy Under 12 and Under 13 Teams. The new-look Kerry Airport logo will be featured on the team jerseys.
 
Kerry Airport, which serves two German destinations with Ryanair, is planning to send one of the underage teams to compete against a German team in Berlin in the new year.
 
The Executive Secretary of Kerry Area Basketball Board, David Ahern, said: “The Kerry Area Basketball Board is delighted to announce a new partnership with Kerry Airport for 2020. It's an exciting time in Kerry Basketball as the game is enjoying continued growth throughout the county. Kerry basketball is involved in many communities in all parts of the Kingdom and everyone involved in Kerry Basketball is excited to be part of Kerry Airport’s plans to celebrate its 50th anniversary as a gateway to Ireland and the rest of the world.”
 
Kerry Airport recently announced Pieta House as its charity partner for 2020 and KABB will also work closely with Kerry Airport to stage a fundraising event in support of Pieta House next year.
 
Kerry Airport is ideally located for anyone wishing to travel on business or pleasure with direct flights to seven destinations including: London-Stansted, London-Luton, Frankfurt-Hahn, Berlin, Alicante & Faro with Ryanair and to Dublin with Aer Lingus Regional.  There is ample and great value parking at Kerry Airport as well as friendly service.
