KERRY'S EYE THIS WEEK - Published Thursday 17th July, 2014

In this week’s

Kerry’s Eye....

The family of two year-old David Roche, who tragically drowned in an accident on the family farm in Mountcollins on Sunday, is being comforted by a huge outpouring of support from the local community, according to the local parish priest.

Loyalty to their respective leaders has counted for nothing as Fine Gael’s Jimmy Deenihan and Labour’s Arthur Spring both lost out in the reshuffle of government ministers.

The owner of an office supply business in Tralee - described in court as a generous supporter of charity - had almost €800,000 in a Swiss bank account, a Revenue investigator said this week. At Tralee Criminal trials on Tuesday, John Cashell (59), of Stacks Mountain, Kilflynn, pleaded guilty to three counts of making incorrect income tax returns, in 2001, 2002 and 2003.

Twenty years ago, film star Gergory Peck offered some advice to actor Laura Dern: “You have to get yourself to Kerry.” This week, the Hollywood star finally took the screen icon’s advice - and arrived in Dingle to receive the Gregory Peck Award at the Dingle International Film Festival.

And Saturday will be a big night for Listowel’s Sinead O’Hanlon - the eighteen-year-old Miss Kerry will go head-to-head with 36 other beauties for the top title of Miss Ireland 2014.

Reshuffle leaves Kerry all shook up

 

Champions Dr Crokes exit the Garvey's Senior Football Championship, beaten by their near neighbours Killarney Legion in dramatic fashion. With it went their hopes of emulating the 5-in-a-row achievement by John Mitchels from 1959-63. Read this report and accounts from the other seven ties in this week's Kerry's Eye.

This weekend hurling takes centre stage. Garvey's Senior Hurling Championship throws-in this Friday evening when Ballyheigue meet Lixnaw. Kilmoyley and Causeway light up the Saturday night sky.

Then on Sunday there is a mouth-watering double header. Abbeydorney take on the returning Crotta before reigning champions, St Brendan's meet favourites Ballyduff.

Read Sylvester Hennessy's in-depth look at all the candidates in this year's chase for the Neilus Flynn trophy.

The Kerry Ladies came a cropper in Rathmore at the weekend, well beaten by old foes Cork. The Kingdom were the reigning Munster champions having stopped Cork's 10-in-a-row hopes last year.

But once again the goals against column was their undoing. Cork scored six and sent Kerry into the Qualifiers.

There's something in the waters in Sneem - their Seine Boat crew. Last weekend saw oarsmen and women competing in Cromane and Templenoe. Sneem came away with the double but the season is far from over.

Read Mary B Teahan's riveting account of a splashing weekend in this week's Kerry's Eye.

 

 

KERRY'S EYE SPORT

 

When this government came into office, we were promised a new way of doing things. Remember the surge of optimism when the old guard of Fianna Fáil were booted out of office and we glimpsed a brave new world under a new set up?    It seems an age ago. And it didn’t last long.
