South Kerry 3-04   Tralee Parnells 1-3

South Kerry captured the Coiste na nÓg Chiarraí Lee Strand U 14 Hurling C Title for the first time on Bank Holiday Monday May 7th in Abbeydorney, beating Tralee Parnells by 9 pts on the day. From the first minute, it was clear that South Kerry meant business: with last year’s heavy loss to the same opposition on their minds they were not to be outdone this time.

Early on, South Kerry’s midfield partnership of Cormac Rowe and Michael Dennehy gained control and dominated for the entire game. However, Tralee Parnells were first to register a few scores with a point and then a good goal. South Kerry reacted quickly with a goal to show they were up for it this time.

South Kerry continued to show good team spirit and fight and battled hard for every ball. Goalkeeper Sean Finnegan was confident all through and looked very comfortable in possession.

Their defence stood firm all through with solid displays from Eoghan Kelly, Ben O’Carroll, David O’Leary, Ross O’Leary, Darragh O’Connor & Jack O’Donoghue.

Up front, Luke Crowley at wing-forward had a great game, winning every ball and working hard all through. Charlie Keating (Captain) at full-forward, even though hampered by a knee injury, played his part also and contributed significantly with 4 points when it mattered most.

Others to impress with their work-rate were Sean Guerin, Matthew Fogarty, Hugh Walsh and Caoilte Ó Cronin.

Ciaran Collins, Jack McGuire, Nathaniel Doncel also looked impressive when introduced, and contributed greatly.

Overall, this was a great win for this team and well done to all the entire panel for a fantastic team effort. Congratulations also to their Mentors, Timmy Hourigan, Donal Casey and Denis Coffey.

South Kerry, by virtue of this win, now qualify for the Féile Finals in Connaught in June.

They will represent Kerry for the first time in their history in the Féile Festival of Hurling and will be travelling to Claremorris in Co. Mayo on the weekend of the 8th to 10th June, where they will be hosted by the home club for the weekend.

This will be a fantastic experience for everyone so we hope that everybody will support this team over the next month and ensure that we make this an enjoyable trip. No doubt a few fund raising events will be taking place over the next few weeks and we would welcome your full support. Best of luck now to all.  Mayo, here we come!

South Kerry: Sean Finnegan, David O’Leary, Ben O’Carroll, Jack O’Donoghue, Ross O’Leary, Eoghan Kelly, Darragh O’Connor, Michael Dennehy, Cormac Rowe, Sean Guerin, Charlie Keating, Luke Crowley, Caoilte Ó Cronin, Matthew Fogarty & Hugh Walsh.

Subs: Cian Twomey, Ciaran Collins, Brian O’Connor, Jack McGuire, Liam Mulhearn, Sam Buckley, Nathaniel Doncel, Brandon Griffin & Diarmuid O’Connor.

Gale force winds associated with Storm Barra, with gusts of over 130 km/h, are continuing to cause damage to the electricity network, currently affecting more than  38,000 homes, farms and businesses across the country.

The damage is mainly attributable to fallen trees on overhead lines as a result of the high winds. ESB Networks’ crews will continue to work late into the evening to restore power to those affected, where safe to do so, but unfortunately, some customers will remain without electricity overnight.

Since early morning and despite challenging conditions, ESB Networks have continued to restore power to customers across the country.
With the storm still crossing the country, more damage and interruptions to supply can be expected. ESB Networks reminds the public that if you come across fallen wires or damaged electricity network, never, ever touch or approach these as they may be LIVE and extremely dangerous.

All internal resources and contractors remain on alert and are responding to electricity outages once it is safe to do so. With a Red weather warning in the Southwest in effect until 9 pm tonight, and Co Clare until 1 am on Wednesday morning, some of our crews may not be mobilised on the ground until the worst of the severe weather passes.

We are advising all those impacted by outages that they should prepare to be without electricity overnight and into tomorrow, with some customers potentially without power beyond that. It is very important that any customers who use electrically powered medical devices should contact their healthcare professional to make alternative arrangements if necessary.

In addition to safety procedures associated with power restoration, crews continue to work under all national Covid-19 protocols with respect to hygiene, social distancing and PPE.

Customers without power can check for updates on when their fault is expected to be repaired at www.powercheck.ie

County Kerry is now bearing the full brunt of Storm Barra and the Kerry Severe Weather Coordination Team reminds everyone that a Status RED weather warning, the highest such warning, remains in place for Kerry until 9pm.

Kerry County Council is advising people to avoid the Ballycasheen area of Killarney

Due to the significant risk to life and property, members of the public should remain indoors and not travel for the rest of the evening. Everyone is advised to follow updates on weather warnings from Met Éireann as well as the local media and social media.

There are an increasing number of roads closed or blocked because of fallen trees, electricity poles and spot flooding. Council crews will respond to issues when it is safe to do so and with the assistance of other agencies where required.

The N71 road at the Suspension Bridge in Kenmare remains closed to traffic as does the N70 Tralee to Castlemaine Road at the hairpin bends. There are a significant number of local and regional and local roads blocked or partially blocked by fallen trees, electricity poles and debris in all parts of the county so travel should be avoided.

The Ballycasheen Road in Killarney and Main Street in Ballybunion (and the surrounding area) should be avoided due to concerns about potential falling debris.

The Council’s emergency contact number is 066 7183588 and it will be operational through this evening and tonight.

Fallen electricity wires/poles and power outages should be reported to ESB Networks on 1800 372 999.
