THE staff at Kerry Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services had a treat on Friday when they received a free fish and chips lunch.
Every Good Friday, Quinlan’s Fish runs a competition in association with Radio Kerry to give a fish and chips lunch to a workplace.
They receive a number of entrants explaining why the workplace is deserving of the free lunch. Fiona Fleming, who is currently on maternity leave from the Edward Street office along with another colleague, won the free lunch for the staff.
“They have had to take up some of the slack for the past few months,” said Fiona. “They work tirelessly to support the young people in Kerry who are going through a difficult time. Unfortunately with a severe lack of resources, the service sometimes comes under criticism but I can say with an open heart that the staff there regularly go above and beyond to support young people and their families.”
“It would be great to win this for them, it might go a small way to making up for the extra work they had to carry while I’m off.”
Radio Kerry DJ Andrew Morrissey went to the premises at lunchtime on Friday with Liam Quinlan and Paul Stack of Quinlan’s Fish to deliver the prize.
