David Clifford mobbed by his young fans when he returns to Fossa school

TO CELEBRATE the launch of the Electric Ireland GAA Minor Star Awards, Electric Ireland travelled to Fossa – the home parish Kerry Minor star David Clifford –to see the effect their successful Minor team has had on the local kids.

After winning their third All-Ireland in a row last season, it seems the Kerry Minor team are becoming major role models in the lives of children all over the county.

David Clifford, who will captain Kerry Minor in 2017 as they go on the hunt for an unprecedented four in a row, was mobbed by students at break time as they soaked up every bit of advice he could give them. Not only did the students create home-made posters of their hero but they even wrote and sang a song for the Kerry captain! We hope to be hearing “Da – Do – David” ringing out in Croke Park for years to come.

Clifford was delighted to see the admiration that the student had for him and his team remarking; “It was great to see all the Kerry jerseys and all the kids around playing football… Hopefully someday some of them will become Kerry Minors too.”

The inaugural GAA Minor Star awards will recognise the best individual performers from the entire season, including provincial and All Ireland stages. The best player in each position will be selected by a panel of four GAA legends, Donal Óg Cusack, Oisín McConville, Andy McEntee and Mattie Kenny to be part of the 2017 Electric Ireland GAA Minor Star Top 15 in both hurling and football.

Spa GAA club has signed up to participate in the Ireland Lights Up winter walking initiative.

The lights will be on every Wednesday night between 7pm and 8pm for the next few weeks at the club’s new walking track. This week marked the second week of night walking but the club also held a candle-light vigil in memory of Ashling Murphy, the Offaly school-teacher who was murdered while out for a walk two weeks ago.

“Participants can follow the walking track that offers a safe off-road path and this activity is open to everyone in the community. If anyone would be available to help with registration or stewarding any night, all help is greatly appreciated,” said club PRO Deirdre O’Sullivan-Darcy.

Any volunteers that can help any evening or any questions please contact Margaret Doyle on 0879181970.

Killarney Municipal District is to appoint the services of a tree specialist to exam the condition of trees in the wider district.

The move follows last December’s Storm Barra. during which several tress were toppled. 
One motorist had a lucky escape when a tree fell on their car during the storm. Another fallen tree blocked access to the Moll’s Gap road near Muckross.
Both Cllrs John O’Donoghue and Donal Grady raised the issue at a recent Killarney Municipal District meeting.
“In order to mitigate against such events, the Killarney MD Office are in the process of preparing tender documents to procure assessment of specific trees that are in the charge of Kerry County Council.” A council official told the meeting.
“This will allow the MD to make determinations on individual trees in its charge. Individual property owners are responsible for the welfare and maintenance of trees within and along the boundary of their property lines.”
