In this week’s

Kerry’s Eye....

A huge production crew for Star Wars VIII - the sequel to the film shot on the World Heritage site last year - arrived in south Kerry on Tuesday and visited the world heritage site.  The director, producer and head of photography for the blockbuster film - along with up to 30 members of the film’s pre-production crew, arrived in Portmagee on Tuesday and were ferried on to the island at around 2.30pm.

Retired Kerry Bishop Bill Murphy (79) was attacked and punched while travelling on a train to Dublin last month, by a man claiming that the Kerry Diocese had not responded adequately to complaints of child sexual abuse.

Kerry GAA supporters will have to make do with 14,000 All-Ireland Football Final tickets which will be allocated to the GAA on Monday. One website is already advertising All-Ireland premium tickets for €650 per ticket  - an indication of the anticipated demand before Kerry’s opposition in the final is even known.

Ardfert Golf Course announced this week that it is to close at the end of December due to a fall-off in memberships and green-fee revenue.

The family of Castleisland man TJ O'Herlihy, who tragically lost his life last weekend, have praised all the people who assisted in the rescue operation in Limerick. TJ O’Herlihy (36) from Tullig in Castleisland, had planned to live with his young family just a quarter of a mile away from the home he grew up in, according to his father Tim.

 The debate on whether Star Wars should return to shoot on Skellig Michael had the carpet pulled from under it this week, as Hollywood arrived unannounced in South Kerry and got the whole thing underway without telling anyone.
