County footballer Sean O’Leary said this week that he is determined to return to Kerry panel after sustaining serious injuries in a car crash last month.

The Kilcummin Club player is out of hospital and recovering at home. He was able to attend last Sunday’s Munster Final at Fitzgerald Stadium as a spectator.

Afterwards his teammates invited him on the pitch during their post-match celebrations.

“It was nice to meet everyone, I spent so much time with them and especially after such a good win,” he told the Killarney Advertiser. “I am feeling good. The hospital staff were unbelievable. My goal is to go back playing football with my club and then Kerry. I will take it step-by-step.”

Sean is considered a rising star of Kerry football. He would have played a key role alongside Peter Keane’s men this season.

He won an All-Ireland Minor medal for Kerry in 2017 and was a member of the Kilcummin side that won the All-Ireland Club Intermediate Football Championship in 2019.

He came dashing through the town on Saturday night and packed streets greeted him with huge excitement.

Yes, that’s right – Santa Claus took some time out of his very busy schedule and arrived to town for the annual switching on of the Christmas lights and magic parade.

The streets were lined with children and their families and they’d huge smiles on their faces when they spotted the man in the red coat making his way around the town on the colourful float.

Grace O’Hare was pictured with her dad Conor – she had the best seat in the town to watch Santa Claus as she was perched high on her dad’s shoulders.

It was the same for the Patterson family, Alex, Irene, Catherine and Robert, while Parade safety steward, Marie Brosnan-Leahy, was on hand to make sure everything went off OK.

Killarney Municipal District Councillors, Cllr Niall ‘Botty’ O’Callaghan, Cllr Donal Grady, Cathaoirleach Killarney Municipal District Cllr John O’Donoghue, Cllr Brendan Cronin, Cllr Marie Moloney, also enjoyed the occasion while the Sam Maguire took pride of place and centre stage in Killarney for the annual fun filled event.

And while he was in town Santa took some time off to have a chat with Killarney Advertiser columnist Marie Carroll-O’Sullivan – check it out on page 14 of this week’s edition.
