Kerry’s Eye....

A major drug gang from Dublin or Limerick left a bomb-like device on the bonnet of a car in a Tralee housing estate this weekend - as a sinister warning message to a local drug dealer.

One of the most controversial Kerry footballers ever, Paul Galvin, is to release his autobiography on October 30th. The Finuge man’s brutally honest account of his career is contained in the book called In My Own Words. It’s likely to be a contender for one of the biggest sports books of the Christmas season.

Thirty terrified pilgrims from Kerry refused to reboard a plane in Dublin Airport yesterday (Wednesday) - after the same plane was twice forced to turn back twenty minutes after take-off because of technical difficulties.  At one point, the passengers told airline staff they wouldn’t travel in the same Air Contractor 737 plane a third time, because they feared for their safety.

The GAA in Kerry is determined to end a ‘nod-and-wink culture’ that has left the association thousands of euro out of pocket from gate receipts over the years.  But controversy over the new ticketing system introduced this year peaked last Sunday - when the county semi-finals in Tralee were delayed  for twenty minutes, as thousands of spectators had still not entered Austin Stack Park.

Lauran Smith is the best sister anyone could ask for - and it’s official! The ten-year-old was this week named ‘Super Sibling of the Year’ at an awards ceremony in Dublin recognising inspirational people.

Love-Hate inches closer every day

Not everyone is a fan of RTE’s Love/Hate. I know plenty who won’t watch it - because it’s too realistic, they say. They’ve no problem watching crime dramas from the US or the UK - no matter how violent - but when it comes to tales of home-grown cops and robbers, it’s easier to look the other way.

Lixnaw excelled in the first half racking up an 11 point half-time lead. But then, curiously, they failed to score again.

Read Sylvester Hennessy's account of a final that confused the pundits.

 

IT"S STACKS v MID KERRY

Sunday October 26th in Tralee sees the meeting of the two sides favoured to win their respective semi-finals.

Austin stacks raced away to a handsome lead and although Paul Geaney's penalty closed the gap they were never in danger.

Then Mid Kerry did a proper demolition job on Shannon Rangers. the North Kerry outfit failed to score in the first half but rallied gamely.
