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

In this week’s

Kerry’s Eye....

The sad death of a popular young sportsman in Tralee prompted a huge outpouring of grief this week, as the community gathered to pay its last respects to Trevor Barrett.

The 29-year-old tragically lost his battle for life at Cork University Hospital on Sunday, three weeks after suffering a stroke.

The parents of inspirational teenager Donal Walsh are to appear on national TV in advance of the first anniversary of their son’s death - to launch a new book by his dad, Fionnbar that’s likely to top the bestseller lists.

Relics of the two popes to be canonised by Pope Francis in Rome this Sunday - John Paul II and John XXIII - have found a permanent home at Tralee’s Dominican church.

Along with a relic of Saint Faustina of Poland, they will formally installed at a special mass on Sunday timed to co-incide with the ceremony at St Peter’s Square that will see the popes named as saints.

A teenager was jailed for 21 months this week, after a court heard a list of offences that took a full hour to be read out by the judge. He was described as an “extremely disruptive youth” who has no understanding of the consequences of his behaviour. “Society has to be protected from this fellow,” Judge James O’Connor said.

Patients are now spending an average of less than five days in Kerry General Hospital as doctors and managers press to free up beds more quickly. Figures published by the  HSE show that the average stay at KGH is 4.8 days  - slightly less than the national average stay of 5.6 days.

Election campaign gives us all an opportunity

THE ROAD TO CROKER

Nothing beats watching your local clubs battle for the Kerry title with hopes of Munster and dreams of Croker.

Last weekend 22 teams set out. 10 fell and Glenflesk and Annascaul must replay.

This weekend 36 teams try to leap the first hurdle.

Kerry's Eye had reporters at every match.

Read their reports of the weekend matches and their informed previews of this weekend's ties.

LADIES PLAY CORK

The Kerry Ladies head for Dromcollogher this Sunday to take on old foes Cork. Kerry have made an instant impact in Division One having been promoted last year. And they are one of the few counties capable of beating the all-conquering Rebelettes. Manager William O'Sullivan has a very good track record against the Reds..and is not inclined to let it go.

Read Sylvester Hennessy's preview in this week's Kerry's Eye.

KERRY MINORS

The Kerry Minor footballers made a very encouraging start to their campaign in Ennis last week. Clare have been a stumbling block to us recently but this 15 point victory bodes well. New minor manager and former senior manager Jack O'Connor was cautiously optimistic after the game.

Read Jimmy Darcy's assessment of the current squad and their next challenge in this week's Kerry's Eye.

THE RAS

The Ras - it always captures the imagination. Would Sean Lacey be putting on the yellow jersey again.

In the end he hat to settle for fifth place as Mark Dowling, son of boxer Mick, punched his way through the traffic to take the tape.
