Kerry’s Eye....

Three homes in Kerry are using an astonishing total of 164,000 litres of water every day - the majority of it flowing into the ground or down the toilet bowl. Between them, the three houses are using the daily equivalent amount of water as the entire population of Dingle.

Tralee Rugby Club is facing a huge bill to replace floodlights in their newly-developed training pitch, after they were targeted by criminals over the weekend.

More than €4,000 worth of floodlights were stolen from O’Dowd Park in Clahane, sometime between Friday and Monday morning.

A powerful and inspiring short film by Waterville man Sean Donal O’Shea - on caring for his mother, who has Alzheimers - is attracting national attention as part of a campaign to raise awareness of dementia.

Sean Donal has been looking after his mother, Debby, since her diagnosis in 2006 at the age of 50.

The massive sinkhole that opened up right in the middle of the green area in a Castleisland estate has prompted fury amongst residents. This week, Kerry County Council secured further underground water tanks and fenced them off from public access as a precautionary measure.

The future of Kerry Airport looks secure following the government’s commitment to fund the Kerry-Dublin route for another two years. The announcement was made on Wednesday by Transport Minister, Paschal Donohoe.

Govt leaves the hard work to charity sector

CHRISTMAS SHOPPING?

No time! This coming weekend is one of the busiest club schedules of the year. Austin Stacks and Ardfert play in the Munster Senior and Munster Intermediate club finals. Castleisland Desmonds Ladies go further - they face Clonburt of Galway in their All Ireland Intermediate Final in Clare.

Closer to home Dingle meet An Ghaeltacht for West Kerry bragging rights, Waterville look to take title number 12  at St Mary's expense and Rathmore and Legion slug it out again in the O'Donoghue Cup final replay. And if that's not enough there are 3 North Kerry quarter finals too!!

BEAUTIFUL BROSNA

Kerry's newly crowned Kerry Junior champions took their first successful step outside the county. Facing a talented Cork side, Millstreet, the North Kerry men started very nervously in a jam-packed Brosna ground. The brilliant stewarding had squeezed nearly 2,500 in to watch the game.

And the Kerry men slowly strangled the footballing hopes out of the Rebels. They now meet near neighbours Glin in the Munster final in 10 days time.

BRASSIL IS BEST

It's not that often dog trainers get winners. A double is - well double delight. But Dan Brassil from Abbeydorney came away from a weekend of coursing with three titles.

KERRY'S EYE SPORT

 

We’re well known as a charitable nation, but isn’t it time that the vital services and facilities funded almost entirely by the public in this country were properly treated - and  properly funded - by the government? Let me put it another way - isn’t it time we stopped letting government after government off the hook when it comes to providing the services we all want and need?
