Kerry’s Eye....

No criminal  charges will be brought over the horrific gas explosion in Killarney town centre three years  ago which  claimed  the  life of 59-year-old local man, James Gleeson. The  inquest  into  Mr Gleeson's death finally concluded  on Wednesday - three years after  a fireball ripped through his laundrette business on Brewery Lane  at around 6.15am on July 13th, 2013.

A German holiday maker has been killed in a fatal motorbike accident this week, after he lost control while coming around a bend just outside Sneem village. The man, who was 55, was on holidays in Kerry and staying in Killarney.

Just under two million kilometres - or fifty times around the equator - that’s the amazing distance riders will clock up between them on Saturday’s massive Ring of Kerry Charity cycle. Almost 11,000 have signed up for the big event, including riders from as far away as Cambodia and Vietnam, Australia, the US and Canada, and fifteen other other countries, as well as from every single county in Ireland.

South Kerry ladies Sally McCarthy and Kathleen O’Sullivan - both 83 years old - have been honoured with the Benemerenti medal, a special award from the Pope for years of service to the church.

ormer employees of the Denny factory in Tralee are planning a big reunion - before the landmark factory disappears when it’s demolished later this year.
