KERRY'S EYE THIS WEEK - Published Thursday 24th September, 2014

In this week’s

Kerry’s Eye....

Tens of thousands of jubilant Kerry supporters lined the streets and packed into Tralee, Killarney and Rathmore on Monday to welcome home the All-Ireland minor and senior champions after an epic day’s work in Croke Park.

Forty-five students had a miraculous escape on Wednesday when the bus in which they were travelling burst into flames just minutes after they were evacuated. Money and luggage were lost in the blaze, and the bus was completely destroyed by flames.

The dramatic rescue unfolded just after 7am on Wednesday, as the pupils were travelling to the Ploughing Championships in Laois.

Residents in Sneem have been left living in fear following a shocking sexual assault on a woman in her 70s in a rural area outside the village last Saturday. Gardai are fully investigating the incident and are confident they will be able to progress the matter which they described as “shocking”.

Positive, loving, popular, a great friend and a sports fanatic was how people described Micheál O’Donoghue (25), the young Killarney bartender whose removal and funeral were attended by thousands this week. A weekend trip to Dublin for the All-Ireland turned to tragedy for the Kerry supporter and his family when he lost his life in a tragic accident after falling into the Royal Canal at Phibsboro in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Another small victory for People Power

Two weeks ago we highlighted how the Department of Education was digging its heels in and refusing to allow three local students with special needs get on a bus to take them to school.

KERRY'S EYE SPORT

 

The Magnificent Seven - that's what Kerry were celebrating after their double All Ireland victory over Donegal on Sunday. First came the Kerry Minors. We knew they were a very good team. They were backboned by the Hogan Cup winning Pobail Scoil Chorca Dhuibhne side.

But we haven't won a minor title since 1994.

And Donegal's own youngsters were unbeaten over the last three years of competition. It was close as the Kingdom's young team tried to unravel a defensive system clearly influenced by senior manager Jim McGuinness.

In the end it was their footballing class that took them over the line with some superb long-range shooting.

Captain Liam Kearney lifted the Tommy Markham Cup and there were audible sighs of relief throughout the county.

 

Over to you seniors - said the celebrating minors.

How would Kerry cope with the most sophisticated defence ever constructed? With difficulty at times. But manager Eamonn Fitzmaurice had watched their game against Dublin very closely.

The irrepressible Peter Crowley was the free man and he ensured that the Donegal 'breakers' crashed on his shore.

Meanwhile a 50 second goal rattled the Ulster champions. But the 2012 All Ireland champs are made of stern stuff. They clawed their way into the lead only to see Kieran Donaghy snatch that from their grasp with a poacher's goal. From there the Kingdom kept ahead to deservedly win their 37th title.
