KERRY'S EYE THIS WEEK - Published Thursday 20th November, 2014

In this week’s

Kerry’s Eye....

Declan O’Sullivan’s announcement on Wednesday that he is to hang up the green and gold jersey is the end of almost fifteen years of sheer class.

In a statement issued on Wednesday morning, the Dromid Pearses man - dogged by injury in recent months  - said his body could no longer deliver what is required at the highest  level.

Staff and pupils at Presentation Primary School in Tralee have been left reeling following the news that a popular former teacher was tragically killed in an accident at Manor West Shopping Centre on Tuesday evening.  Geraldine Murphy (60) of Brosna and Ashleigh Downs, Tralee, died after she was struck by a car at shopping centre at around 6.30pm.

Majella Forde from Lixnaw, who in the last eighteen months has clocked up nearly 900 hours of voluntary duty with the Red Cross, has been nominated for the national 2014 Volunteer Ireland Awards.

It was a bittersweet few hours for Mary Cremin last Saturday night as she held an All-Ireland football medal belonging to her late father-in-law, Gus, tightly in her hand on RTE's Winning Streak.

Gus Cremin - one of the great Kerry footballers of the 1940s - passed away peacefully on Thursday, just two days before Mary's TV appearance.

Mary believed that Gus himself, who loved to watch Winning Streak, was in her hand as she scooped the €54,000 in prizes on Saturday.

‘Peaceful protest’ looked like

mob rule

TWO THROUGH

Both Austin Stacks and Ardfert made it through to the Munster football finals. Stacks were taken to extra-time by Cork champions Ballincollig. But their extra fitness told as they eased away to victory. Ardfert had the long trek to Dungarvan to face Waterford champions Brickey Rangers. But they too strode to victory with a particularly impressive second half performance.

Stacks now meet Deise side The Nire, who surprised Cratloe at the weekend, in Pairc Ui Rinn on Sunday Nov 30th. Ardfert meet Rebel outfit Valley Rovers in Fitzgerald Stadium on Saturday 29th.

JUNIOR & NOVICE THRILLERS

The two outstanding County titles - Junior & Novice - were decided last weekend - and both by the minimum.

Brosna beat a gutsy Dromid in a cat and mouse contest. Five times losing finalists Listry finally got over the line against a determined Lispole.

DESMONDS IN ALL IRELAND

Castleisland Ladies faced the might of Dublin outfit Kilmacud Crokes. Despite scoring 16 times to their opponents six it had to go to extra time. That was because of a hat-trick of goals by the Metropolitans. But in front of a passionate crowd, Desmonds finally put their stamp on the match. They meet their Galway opponents on November 29th.

 

 

KERRY'S EYE SPORT

 

Is it OK to do whatever you want, as long as you’re shouting “peaceful protest” as you do it? Is it acceptable, for example, to lock up a member of the government against their wishes for a couple of hours - kidnap them, in effect - as long as you roar the magic words?
