Kerry’s Eye....

Ticket touts could prove to be the real winners in Limerick on Saturday as thousands of Kerry fans scramble to get their hands on a ticket for the replay clash with Mayo in the Gaelic Grounds. The County Board has described the demand for tickets as “unbelievable” and not a single one of the 7,500 stand tickets allocated to Kerry was available from Tuesday evening.

The parents of a three-week-old baby who died in a cot death last June are to sue the HSE over claims of delays in getting an ambulance to their home in Tralee.

Struggling parents in Kerry are turning to moneylenders to help with the costs of school books and uniforms, according to the Saint Vincent de Paul. The charity said it has recorded a significant surge in calls for help in the past few weeks as the school deadline looms and parents scramble to cover the costs.

The Irish Coastguard is to investigate an incident at Inch last Monday evening  when four volunteers from Dingle Coastguard Unit had a miraculous escape after their boat capsized in treacherous waters.

And our four-part collection, Kerry and the Soldiers of WWI , conclues this week with a special eight-page edition featuring the front line diary of a Kerry soldier as well as the stories of the Annascaul brothers killed in action, the Listowel family at war, and the Killorglin man who survived on the Western Front but was later shot by Free State forces at home in Kerry.

GAA scores another own goal on replay

I’d say Penn State will have too much defensive power. Florida’s Golden Knights just don’t have what it takes on the big occasion, do they? And the Croke Park surface should suit the Nittany Lions’ offensive line. Touchdowns all the way, etc.

THRILLER IN CROKER: Last year Kerry were involved in the game of the 2013 championship in their semi-final meeting with Dublin. Last weekend the Kingdom did it again - this time against favourites Mayo. Kerry looked the dominant force until the Heathermen had Lee Keegan sent-off. 14 man Mayo proceeded to pulverise a hesitant Kerry outfit. But Kerry's bench came to the rescue with Kieran Donaghy leading the charge.

MINOR MAGIC; Kerry's Minors, under Jack O'Connor, have reached the All Ireland final and now await the winers of the Donegal v Dublin semi-final. It was a nervy stop-start first half with little flowing football. But driven on by Barra O Suilleabhain in midfield and Killian Spillane up top, Kerry ended deserving winners.

HARDMAN: Killarney hosted the ultimate test of an athlete - the Hardman. This involved a 3.8km swim, a 180km cycle and the full 26 mile (42km) marathon distance. Too much for most but Milosz Wojcik and Ruth Deignam led a string of competitors home.
