THE entire community has welcomed the news that Killarney man Anthony Morris is doing so well following treatment for Lyme disease in the United States.

The former Kerry footballer returned to Ireland on Sunday and the campaign started by his family to help him in his fight continues this evening, thanks to his brother Jim who is organising the quiz event the Brains of Kerry.

“Do you long for the days when quizzes were won by those who knew the answers rather than who is the fastest on the Internet? Well, now is your chance to prove that you and your team are the ‘Brains of Kerry’ and can do it without your phones!” said Jim.

The regional semi-finals of the Brains of Kerry quiz takes place this evening, Thursday, February 23, from 8.30pm with a start time of 9pm in seven venues across Kerry with the grand final next week, Thursday, March 2. “There will be four people per team and all phones will be securely guarded during the quiz,” added Jim.

The same questions will be asked by the guest quiz masters in each venue: The Killarney Avenue, Killarney; The Manor Inn, Killorglin; The Ring of Kerry Hotel, Caherciveen; The Brook Lane Hotel, Kenmare; The Brandon Hotel, Tralee; Benners Hotel, Dingle; and The Listowel Arms Hotel, Listowel.
The cost of entry is only €40 for a team of 4 with 3 teams from each venue qualifying for the grand final on March 2 in the Killarney Avenue Hotel. “Come along and test yourself against others and not the Internet!” said Jim.

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.”
