Paul does it the Hard way!

Listry man Paul Gosney is not your ordinary Hardman athlete - the father-of-two is planning five Hardman events in five days, starting next Tuesday. In total, Paul will swim 19k, cycle 900k and run 211k over the five days, in aid of the Bumbleance.

Narrow escape for French tourists

A bus carrying 45 French tourists had a very lucky escape on Tuesday afternoon, when the vehicle slipped off the road and landed on its side. The bus went off the road close to Waterville Golf Links on the minor road in an area known locally as Murreigh. Gardaí and the ambulance attended the scene.

Eileen takes over at Listowel Pres

Students and staff at the Presentation Secondary in Listowel will find big changes when they return to the books in September - there’s a new principal at the helm. Eileen Kennelly will become the first ever lay principal in the school’s history since it was founded in 1930.

80 witnesses for

Killorglin murder trial

Kerry’s most senior garda, a nun and the country’s leading DNA expert are amongst the 80 witness who will be called to give evidence at the double murder trial of the Lithuanian man charged with killing a mother and daughter in Killorglin over a year ago.

Union on wrong track with GAA fans

Dublin rampage through the quarter final. The challenge this time came from Ulster. Leinster, goes the folk wisdom, is a very poor standard.

And for the first 20 minutes Ulster finalists Monaghan stayed with the favourites but were blown away in a second half avalanche. So can anyone beat the Blue Wave?

Our journalists tackle the issue in this week's Kerry's Eye.

 

The Kerry Juniors took on a Sligo side with plenty of senior experience - and demolished them.They now face a Cavan side in the final that can pick from their 4-in-a-row Ulster winning sides.

Read Jimmy Darcy's take on the match in Ennis.

 

Fantasy Football League - think you're as good as Mourinho or Wenger? Maybe, but are you as good as James O'Donoghue or Shane Nolan - a harder task. Join Kerry's Eye Fantasy Football League and play against the stars.

 

This is the big weekend for the rowers. The All Ireland Coastal Rowing Championships take place over 3 days this weekend in Waterville. The Kerry clubs are ready for every challenge. They rehearsed at the venue last weekend.

Cynical, selfish and mean-spirited - how else can you describe plans by the National Bus and Rail Union to shut down services on All-Ireland final and semi-final days? They may well have something to protest about - but turning GAA fans into collateral damage in an industrial dispute is not the way to gain sympathy for the cause.
