Kerry’s Eye....

 An 18-year-old student was subjected to a harrowing sex attack and assault in Tralee when she was followed by an apprentice jockey carrying duct tape and scissors, a court heard this week. The victim, now 19, said she believed she was going to die, and remains “haunted” by the night and the fears of what could have happened to her.

A special mobile unit used by gardaí at major events will be in Killarney for the weekend and will serve as a command centre to monitor and deal with incidents at the Rally of the Lakes as part of a clampdown on anti-social behaviour.

Tralee’s Denny Street will have two-way traffic by the end of August and it is hoped that work will begin on The Mall in September, to create a "town centre area worthy of the town”, Tralee Chamber Alliance heard on Wednesday.

Kieran Donaghy is to 'Star' in a brand-new Premier League basketball team that will be launched in Tralee before next year's season kicks off in October. The two major basketball clubs in Tralee, Imperials and St Brendan’s, are to back a new premier side, the Warriors.

Over 300 jobs will be created during the construction of six giant solar farms planned for sites in Killarney and Listowel.

Solar energy company Terra Solar is to lodge a planning application in the next fortnight for the first two solar farms in Trienearagh, outside Listowel, and Madam’s Hill outside Killarney town.

Out with the old, in with the old

KERRY BLUES AGAIN

We thought we’d be close, closer than last year’s All Ireland. Instead we got a double digit hiding.

So what went wrong?  Read Mike Ferriter and Mike Quirke’s analyses and Sylvester Hennessy’s forensic statistical analysis.

 

HISTORY MAKERS

This Sunday Kerry play in the Leinster Championship - no mistake there.  In a round robin pool that also includes Westmeath and Offaly, the Kingdom start against Carlow.  The top two in the group will fill two slots in the quarter-finals.

 

RALLY OF LAKES

This weekend sees the annual Rally of the Lakes.  It promises to be a highly competitive rally attracting top drivers from far and wide.

Who will win the main prize?  Read Padraig Harnett in this week’s Kerry’s Eye

 

KERRY'S EYE SPORT

 

So much for the new way of doing politics we were promised with this election. And the one before that, for that matter. All the parties seemed to be doing this week was jockey for position in a new government, with one eye on the inevitable election that's to come.
