Listowel man faces terrorism charges

Listowel man John Sheehy (right) is in custody in Northern Ireland and is due back in court in four weeks to face charges relating to a dissident republican plot to target judges and police officers.

by Aidan O’Connor

Thirty-year-old Sheehy, from Clounmacon, is the Kerry chairman of an organisation called Continuity Sinn Fein.

He was one of seven men who appeared before court in Newry on Monday, charged with terrorism offences arising out of an MI5 probe into dissident republican activities.

He is charged with membership of a proscribed organisation, as well as charges of conspiracy to possess explosives with intent to endanger life, conspiracy to possess firearms and ammunition with intent to endanger life and preparation for acts of terrorism.

Five of the men, but not Sheehy, are charged with directing terrorism. A PSNI officer said that up to 70 hours of material was recorded on listening devices over a three-month period from August at a property in Newry

All-Ireland medal puts family on a Winning Streak

It was a bittersweet few hours for Mary Cremin last Saturday night as she held an All-Ireland football medal belonging to her late father-in-law, Gus, tightly in her hand on RTE's Winning Streak.

Gus Cremin - one of the great Kerry footballers of the 1940s - passed away peacefully on Thursday.

Mary believed that Gus himself, who loved to watch Winning Streak, was in her hand as she scooped €54,000 in prizes. She said bringing his All-Ireland medal to RTE in Dublin just hours before his removal made all the difference.

“The family gave us Gus’s medal and I held it throughout the show. They reckon it was Gus who did all the work on the night.”

Declan marks end of an era

Senior management and officials inside Kerry GAA led tributes on Wednesday to Declan O’Sulllivan - one of the most outstanding forwards to have ever worn the green and gold but who has now decided to hang up his inter-county boots.

O'Sullivan announced his decision to retire on Wednesday morning in a statement issued through the Kerry GAA website.

“It has been an incredibly difficult decision to arrive at but, after a lot of consideration, I feel now is the right time,” he said.

Tralee artist Charlotte Lee has been chosen out of 1,400 contestants to appear on Sky Arts Portrait Artist Of The Year 2014, and is in the frame for one of the biggest titles in the art world.

In the show, to be aired December 9th on Sky Arts, Charlotte goes against eleven other artists to create a portrait of a celebrity.

Charlotte (25) from Laharn, says the high-profile show will be a huge boost to her early career - and could also give her the chance to be exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in England, as well as a £10,000 commission if she makes it through to the next round.

Tragic death of former teacher

Staff and pupils at Presentation Primary School in Tralee have been left reeling following the news that a popular former teacher was tragically killed in an accident at Manor West Shopping Centre on Tuesday evening.

Geraldine Murphy (60) of Brosna and Ashleigh Downs, Tralee, died after being struck by a car at the shopping centre at around 6.30pm in an incident described by gardaí as a tragic accident.

The incident occurred just below the Debenhams entrance to Manor West, close to the ATM and Claire’s Accessories. Ms Murphy, who retired as a teacher at the Presentation in June after an 18-year career at the school, is believed to have been crossing the road when the accident occurred.
