A 14-year-old schoolgirl is definitely a talent to watch as a musical she has been writing over three years is ready for its public debut.

Sinead Marie Greene, who is going in to Second Year in Killarney Community College next week, is excited to showcase 'Prom Queen', a new jukebox musical using well known songs to tell a story.

Today (Friday), together with 11 local teenage girls and singing teacher Sorcha O’Connor, she'll be holding a virtual concert of the best songs and numbers from the musical.

And in the future she has big plans to bring it to a physical stage when the easing of restrictions allow.

"I highly recommend this to any teenagers or parents, or anyone who just wants to watch a concert of amazingly talented teens," Sinead told the Killarney Advertiser.

"We are hoping to put it on a stage fully sometime next year using the money that this concert makes. You can find us on Instagram under @promqueenthemusical and the ticket link is in the description/bio there."

The tickets are €4 and you can also buy a virtual programme for €1 extra.

"Buying a ticket also gets you a link to watch our talent showcase where all of our cast performs a song so we could showcase all of them individually. You can enjoy two concerts for the price of €4!"

She added that she's so grateful to Sorcha O’Connor, her amazing singing teacher who helped to get it up and running and for involving her two friends Siobhain Bustin and Jack Brosnan.

"Another huge thank you to Killarney School of Music for allowing us to use their facilities for rehearsals."

London-based South Kerry man, Dan Tim O’Sullivan, will exercise his rights as a Freeman of the city by herding sheep over a London bridge on Sunday.

Mr O’Sullivan from Kells, was awarded the Freedom of the City of London in 2019, in recognition for his work in the construction industry.

He employs over one thousand people through his labour hire firm ‘Danny Sullivan and Sons’, and has employed countless Kerry people, many of them from his native South Kerry, since its foundation in the mid-1980s.

The Freedom of the City of London allows the bearer to herd one hundred sheep over the landmark Tower Bridge.

However, logistical issues and traffic management plans mean the number of sheep has been reduced to less than 10 and the event will now take place over nearby Southwark Bridge.

London-based news channels, including the BBC, are expected to cover the event while hundreds of his family and friends from South Kerry will be in London to witness the unique event.
