THE line-up for the Killarney version of I’m a Celeb…Get Me Out of Here has been confirmed.

As revealed by KillarneyToday.com at the weekend, the big fright night promotion will take place in the INEC, Killarney on Thursday, October 26 to raise funds for the Stephen Lyne Foundation and the Kerry Stars Special Olympics Club.

A dozen game but terrified individuals will enter the celeb camp to be subjected to a gruesome ordeal involving insects, snakes, hell hole confinement and gourmet critter munching and it will certainly be no place for the faint-hearted – or those with weak stomachs.

Those seeking to be crowned king or queen of the jungle include Killarney Legion Chairman Enda Walshe, physiotherapist Ruth Allen, DJs Gavin O’Leary and Brendan Fuller, politician Michael Healy-Rae, graphic design specialist and motorcycle enthusiast Emma Philips, celebrity hairstylist Sean Taaffe, Mary Brosnan, school principals Rory D’Arcy and Sean Coffey, Mags Harty and All-Star goalkeeper Brendan Kealy.

Bríd Lucey, chairperson of the organising committee, said they have gone to extra lengths to provide those who attend with a very special event.

“Without the necessary funds the work these organisations do wouldn’t happen so we would appeal to the public to kindly support this venture in whatever way they can,” she said.
