Kerry’s Eye....

A teenager who tried to bully a 13-year-old into becoming a drug dealer, and later sent texts threatening to kick him to death if he didn't come up with  cash, was sentenced to 18 months in jail this week. The younger boy was terrified and took possession of the drugs, but after he threw them away he was subjected to a series of threatening text messages telling him he would be beaten if he didn’t hand over €150, Tralee Circuit Court heard.

Newly-crowned Kerry Rose Danielle O'Sullivan is set for a busy summer - between studying for her solicitor exams, completing her thesis and representing her county in the 2016 Rose of Tralee Festival. The Kilcummin woman was stunned to be named the Kerry Rose on Friday.

A south Kerry man who twice raped a 74-year-old woman after breaking into her home, left "the victim sobbing uncontrollably like a small child - broken, terrorised and waiting for death".

The Tralee to Blennerville Steam Train could be up and running within the next two years following a meeting with interested parties and Kerry County Council this week.

After almost a week of feeling the Force, West Kerry has said goodbye to the cast and crew of Star Wars VIII who began dismantling the beehive set and village on the Ceann Sibéal headland on Wednesday morning.
