KERRY'S EYE THIS WEEK - Published Thursday 11th September, 2014

In this week’s

Kerry’s Eye....

Drug dealers planned to cash in on the Junior Cert celebrations in Tralee and north Kerry yesterday, by flooding the area with a massive supply of a potentially lethal form of ecstasy.

The scramble for All-Ireland Final tickets is on - but the County Board is confident it will source enough to meet the massive demand from Kerry supporters, and that Croke Park will be filled with green and gold come the showdown with Donegal on September 21st.

Kerry’s Eye is making it easy to get tickets - with five pairs of ALL-IRELAND FINAL tickets to give away.

Over 1,000 businesses in Killarney could be forced to cough up an additional €835,000 in rates over the next five years, while businesses in Listowel could face paying an extra €165,000, under new plans by Kerry County Council bosses.

Three Romanian women who come to Tralee less than two weeks ago appeared in custody at the local court yesterday, charged with prostitution. They were arrested at an apartment in the town centre on Tuesday night, and held in custody

at Tralee Garda Station. On Wednesday, they each pleaded guilty to using the apartment as a brothel for the purpose of prostitution.

All forms of betting will generate upwards of €50m during next week’s Listowel Race week as punters pack into the town for the seven-day race meeting, according to Festival chairman John McGuire. The week kicks off on Sunday with the Kerry Group Family Day, while Ladies Day is tomorrow week, Friday 19th.

People before numbers - let them on the bus!

TRAINING CENTRE STARTS: The first of Kerry GAA's twin-pronged approach to create training grounds fir for purpose has started. Diggers are already in on the  48 acres of land at Currans. The County Board hope that the McGrath Cup team of 2016 will be using it as their training base.

Read a fascinating insight into these developments in this week's Kerry's Eye

 

The hurlers do us proud. The Kerry Minors completed a three-in-a-row of All Ireland B titles when they defeated Meath in Nenagh on Saturday.

In a gripping game, Kerry seemed to have the game in their grasp. The Royals retaliated with a late goal. But then, sensing danger, the lads in Green & Gold hit the afterburners to score two goals in injury time.

It's Autumn: You know when the rowers take their boats out of the water the summer has gone. And the racing at Cahersiveen last weekend closed the season. But what a close. Sneem Ladies took a thrilling Seine Boat Race chased home by a voracious pack. And after their brilliant hosting down in Waterville of the All Ireland Championship maybe it's time to take a well-earned rest.
