Tributes have been paid to Denny Lucey, of Lisbabe, Headford, who died this week after an illness.

Denny was well-known in community circles, particularly in Barraduff and Glenflesk where he was active local volunteer.

He was a very active member of Glenflesk GAA and held several committee roles, including senior team trainer over the years.

“All in Glenflesk GAA are deeply saddened by the passing away of our club mate Denis Lucey,” Club Chairman Tim Murphy told the Killarney Advertiser.

“A tenacious corner back at underage for Glenflesk, his sons, Danny and Sean, have followed in his footsteps and are current seniors with the club. He had huge commitment to the community.”

The self-employed plant hire operator was one of the key people behind the Barraduff Community Field and if there was any digging to be done, Denny was the man to do it.

“Den was very much a peoples’ person, he loved to chat and banter and was always in great humour,” said a social media post by the Barraduff  Community Field Organisation. “He loved his football and music in his spare time and gave up to 20 years of volunteering to the Barraduff Community Field committee and played a big part in its overall success. Den was always a very proud Lisbabe man, but he had great passion for the Barraduff community project.”

Another project close to his heart was the Barraduff Tidy Village Group.

He is survived by his wife Margaret (O’Mahony), sons Danny and Sean, his parents Mary and Dan Joe, sisters Sheila (O’Connor) and Bernardine (Roche), brothers Patrick and Daniel, nephews, nieces, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law and extended family and friends.

Denny was laid to rest on Wednesday morning at Killaha Cemetery following Funeral Mass at the Sacred Heart Church in Barraduff.

What do roses, wrens, King Puck, fairies and Santa Claus have in common? Well, all now feature in a new children’s book co-written by a mother and son.

The new illustrated poetry collection for children, ‘A Very Kerry Year’, by Killorglin mother and son, Jacinta and Conor Browne, has been published just in time for Christmas.

And all proceeds will be donated to Comfort for Chemo, an organisation whose mission it is to build and equip a chemotherapy unit for the people of Kerry.

The charity is close to the young author’s heart as Conor himself was undergoing cancer treatment while writing this book.

With original poetry by the mother and son, the book also has another separate family connection as the talented illustrators are local artists, father-daughter duo Con and Rochelle Lucey, with each page awash with colour and beautiful drawings.

“I know first-hand how important it is to have a comfortable environment while receiving chemotherapy,” Conor said.

‘A Very Kerry Year’ is currently available for €12 from The Crystal Cave and the Reeks District Tourist Office in Killorglin and will soon be available in many more outlets throughout the county.
