In this week’s

Kerry’s Eye....

A mother whose two teenage children haven't gone to school a single day this year - because they're playing on their phones all night - has been jailed for three weeks, while a second woman with a 15-year-old was threatened with jail if she does not send her child to school by March 2nd. The jailed woman was summonsed by the Child and Family Agency over the continued absence of her 14 and 15-year-olds from a local school.

Experienced hill walker Mary Cotter was marking her 52nd birthday on the day she tragically died in a fall at the weekend. Mary’s heartbroken husband Dan said this week that the family has been devastated by her tragic death. “Myself and my sons are just heartbroken,” Dan Cotter told Kerry’s Eye.

Fianna Fáil politicians in Kerry are furious over their party's decision not to add another candidate in the general election race, following the surprise announcement by Deputy Tom Fleming to quit politics. The shock decision last Friday has left over a quarter of the entire electorate in one part the county without any main party candidate, TD, senator or councillor contesting the election.

The recount of ballot papers in the Listowel Municipal Area 2014 election was ongoing as Kerry’s Eye went to press. Some of the disputed ballot papers are likely to be brought before Judge Tom O'Donnell in Limerick Circuit Court for a decision on whether they should be included.

A private members club offering live poker games, blackjack, roulette and gaming machines is to open in Killarney for the tourist season. The owners of the Gold Rush Casinos in Cork are behind the plans and have applied for planning permission to open the facility.

Monday is D-Day for cyclists waiting to see if they have won a place on the 2016 Ring of Kerry Cycle. Over 9,000 applicants have registered online to take part, but only 6,000 will receive places.

St Mary's and Templenoe returned home from Croke Park as All-Ireland champions at the weekend - prompting huge celebrations in the local community.

 Anyone who's ever driven to the airport in Dublin will be well familiar with the Regency Hotel, scene of a shooting last week that looked like something you'd see in a crime movie. The hotel is one of the landmarks used by drivers heading out of the city to make sure we're heading in the right direction.
