Best-selling author Cathy Kelly presents the final episode of the season which explores two of Kerry's walking routes which are among the most scenic in Ireland.

Viewers are taken along trails with Cathy to explore heart-stopping Wild Atlantic views of the Ventry, Slea Head and Blasket Islands to the soaring majesty of the mountains on the lakes in Killarney National Park, Muckross Waterfall and Ross Castle.

Along these routes, Cathy encounters locals who give a deeper insight into the trails that she traverses including local historian and manager of the Blasket Centre Lorcán Ó Cinnéide, Dingle Way Walks Officer Liadain Slattery, multi-talented Kerry sports star Louise Galvin and Killarney local Donal O’Donoghue from the Gap of Dunloe Traditional Tour Boats.

“Tracks & Trails has a long affinity with filming their show in County Kerry and it is with great pleasure that we, as a crew and a family, were able to return to County Kerry to shoot this very special episode to close Season 10," says the show's producer Clíona Sherwin.

"We would like to thank Kerry County Council, Kerry Tourism Industry Federation and all those involved who helped make this one of our most beautiful shows. The only problem we had was choosing which trails to feature as the choice is endless in Kerry. With our crew and our presenter Cathy Kelly, we hope we have presented these two parts of Kerry in a way that will make the locals proud and will make viewers want to drop everything and take to these trails to explore.”

Tune into RTÉ One on Thursday July 21 at 7pm.

Kristy Nicholas, pictured, found the ring on s footpath in the Lackabane Estate in Fossa on December 29 last.

Since then she has exhausted all channels in an effort to find the owner including regular contact with the Gardai and local word of mouth.

“Since that time I worked to find the owner through word of mouth and by filing a report with Gardai. Since I’ve been unsuccessful,” she told the Killarney Advertiser.

“The owner could ring the Killarney Gardai station and provide details to be connected with me. To be reunited a description will be needed, such as the brand and designer and type of ring It’s quite an expensive ring so I’m really hoping to get it back to the right place.”
