KERRY'S EYE THIS WEEK - Published Thursday 2nd April, 2015

In this week’s

Kerry’s Eye....

Kerry publicans are spearheading a campaign to open up bars on Good Friday from 6pm to 10pm from next year, in a move to repeal what many now believe to be “outdated” licensing laws. They plan to make the proposal on limited opening hours before the annual Vintners Federation of Ireland conference in May in Killarney.

Kerry County Council will go on a spending spree over the next three  years, building, buying and leasing over 1,000 houses and apartments for people on the social housing list.

Over €62 million was handed over by the government on Wednesday which is expected to take over 1,000 off the housing list by 2017.

But over 3,500 people will still be left waiting for accommodation - many of them on the housing list for up to a decade.

The business community in Tralee is being urged to back the redevelopment of Austin Stack Park - to help avoid the town losing major business. A new sub-committee is to be set up by Tralee Chamber Alliance to examine how to support the planned €800,000 redevelopment of the facility.

A mystery poison with symptoms similar to the deadly strychnine has struck two dogs in Killarney National Park and a third on a mountainside at Lauragh outside Kenmare.

IN TROUBLE

A passionless performance by Kerry allowed Monaghan a foothold in their Allianz League meeting in Tralee on Sunday. From there the Farney men climbed the mountain to claim the points.

But what happened to the Kerry side so bouyant against Donegal?

WEST HOLD THEIR NERVE

It may have taken extra time to overcome a stiff challenge from Ulster's finest St Pat's of Cavan but the PS Chorcha Dhuibhne fully deserved the victory in the end. And their badminton team also took an All Ireland title at the weekend

Read about both in this week's Kerry's Eye

 

MATT FINISHED

There were sighs of disappointment as the punters saw their money disappear. Ballymac Matt had looked a certainty for the Sweep but ran out of gas.

KERRY'S EYE SPORT

 

If you’re fortunate enough this Good Friday to be in Rome and the Vatican, you can mark the occasion with a glass of wine. A few steps away from St Peter’s, in fact, you can down a beer, or two or three, in any of the local bars or restaurants happily serving alcohol on demand. You might be sitting beside a priest or even a bishop as you do.
