KERRY'S EYE THIS WEEK - Published Thursday 18th December, 2014

In this week’s

Kerry’s Eye....

The husband of Catriona Dowling, who died tragically in Saturday’s car crash near Ballyduff, told hundreds of mourners at her funeral Mass yesterday (Wednesday) that he was still madly in love with his wife.

In an emotional address at St Peter and Paul’s Church, Michael Dowling described Catriona as the perfect wife and a great mother who had a wonderful bond with all her family, friends and colleagues.

Over 1,000 families will be fed this Christmas from a new food bank opened in Tralee as the food poverty crisis in the county gets worse.

Up to ten staff are now working late into the evenings in the Tralee town warehouse, as the Vincent de Paul prepares food hampers for people and families who just can’t survive this Christmas.

An Post is assuring its customers in Listowel that no services will be affected by its plans to move premises early in 2015. However, fears have been raised that the move from William Street to SuperValu could impact on other businesses that enjoyed the footfall generated by the local post office.

Residents of Cahereen Heights in Castleisland got an early Christmas present this week, when it was revealed that repair work on the sinkhole that appeared in their green area will begin in early January. Contractors are currently at the site in attempts to make the hole safe before Christmas.

Messages of support have been pouring in this week for Killarney man Neil Kelders, who has gone public with his battle against depression - in a bid to reach out to others suffering with the condition.

CAUSEWAY FIND THE WAY

An Tóchar have waited a long time for this - an U21 county hurling title. And opponents St Brendan's had beaten them with something to spare in last year's minor final.

With so many of those players facing one another again, the Saints might have been favourites. But a battling 15-man display by the Maroons, led by captain Tommy Casey, saw Causeway win with plenty to spare.

CASTLEISLAND INSPIRE

Two An Riocht athletes represented Ireland in the European Cross Country championships in Bulgaria last weekend.

Experienced international, Laura Crowe struggled through illness to 53rd place. In so doing she helped the Irish team to the bronze medal.

Then the fairy story. 20 year old Shona Heaslip, who only took up running in the Kerry's Eye 10k this year, helped the Irish U/23 team into 9th place.

KING OF THE MOUNTAINS

John Lenihan has been one of Kerry's world-rated athletes since the 1980's. He talks to Michael Ferriter about his running career, his tag as 'King of the Mountains' and how that came about, and struggling to cope with retirement.

KERRY'S EYE SPORT

 

The European Central Bank gave the two fingers to Ireland this week - by saying it wasn’t going to bother showing up to answer any questions at the banking enquiry. So much for accountability: the ECB’s response means that a full picture of what happened in the banking crash of 2008 may never be fully known.
