Enjoying sunshine without harming your skin
After another dull Irish winter the sun is eventually starting to peep out again.
It’s only natural that we all want to spend a lot of time outside to soak up the
rays of light and warm temperature. Remember however to protect your skin
and to avoid excessive exposure and burning as clinical studies have shown that
sunburn nearly doubles the risk of Malignant Melanomas, the most serious of
skin cancers.
Bearing in mind that each year over 8000 cases of skin cancer are diagnosed
in Ireland, it becomes more and more important to take the following
precautions to protect your skin. One of the easiest things to do to protect the
skin from UV rays is to cover it with clothes, e.g. wearing a shirt with collar
and sleeves. To give shade to your face, neck and ears don’t forget to slap on a
hat.
When the sun is at its strongest between 11am and 3pm, stay cool in the
shade. Wear UV-blocking wrap-around sunglasses as the eyes can be damaged
by UV rays which could eventually lead to skin cancer. This applies to children
as well as adults. Always apply a sunscreen, - that means SPF 15 or higher
including UVA protection - and don’t forget to put it on your ears, neck, bald
patch, hands and feet. And apply you sunscreen generously, approx. 35 ml for
an adult and 15 ml for a child to cover the whole body. Put the cream or lotion
on 30 minutes before going outside and reapply every two hours.
Babies under 1 year should not be exposed to direct sunlight at all also do
not use sunscreen on them unless sun exposure is really unavoidable. Always
make sure that your baby wears protective clothing including a hat and use a
parasol on the buggy. As the child grows, UV protection habits should become
routine as brushing teeth.
Only use paediatric sunscreens on children as adult sunscreens are not suitable.
Last but not least never forget that a person’s lifetime risk of developing skin
cancer is strongly affected by sun exposure during the first 15 years of life, so
always take special care to protect your children. If you would like to know
more about sun protection call into McSweeney Pharmacy Kenmare and we
will be more than happy to answer any query you may have.

What an interesting evening we had on Thursday 7th June and we
had a good turnout for the talk. Joyce Russell really knows about
growing food in a polytunnel, she has had hers for 18 years and
grows vegetables just about the whole year round. She showed us
slides of how she operates her tunnel and gave us sound advice on
feeding, watering, ventilation, etc. A very inspiring lady who has
also written an excellent book on the subject called The Polytunnel
Book - Fruit and Vegetables All Year Round.
We are now entering a busy season in the garden and will not be
meeting again until Thursday 6th September when our own
Damien O'Flynn will be sharing with us his knowledge and
expertise on hedging.
Should a day trip be arranged during July or August, all members
will be contacted by phone.
Until we meet again, happy growing/picking, don't work too
hard.... leave time to smell the roses!
A Car Boot Sale will be held on Saturday 30th June
from 10am-5pm at Gateway Methodist Church,
Kenmare. All proceeds will go towards sending a
member of Kenmare to DYCW's Guatemala Mission.

Senator
reports...
Senator Daly continues to press
for further transparency in
NAMA with Bill before Seanad
Last week I brought legislation before the
Seanad seeking further transparency in the
workings of the National Asset
Management Agency.
Speaking during the debate, I commented
that “This is to ensure transparency for the
taxpayer - there needs to be a website where
everyone can see what is for sale otherwise
the Irishtaxpayer will continuing to lose
money on a daily basis and not millions or
tens of millions but hundreds of millions of
euro". The recent Cork case where 450
acres of land originally bought for 100
million was sold for 7 million without ever
going on the open market is an example of
the necessity of such legislation.
It is crucially important that the public have
more confidence in the way the state bodies
run their operations.
The bill was defeated in the Seanad on a
vote 17 to 24 ,but I will continue to work to
ensure transparency in NAMA's operations.
Protecting Local Garda Stations
I have highlighted my ongoing concerns for
the future of local rural Garda stations, and
welcome the recent meeting organised by
the Sneem Community Alert on the issue. It
is important to inform people of the
importance of their local stations in
protecting the elderly, those living alone
and the wider community.
Block work on Kenmare Hospital
to be Completed in July
Caherdaniel native JP McAllen was
awarded the block work contract for the
Kenmare Hospital in March of this year and
has made rapid progress to date. McAllen
Construction are currently employing over
20 locals on the site, which is a welcome
addition to the local shops and businesses in
these difficult economic times. Over the
lifetime of the construction of the hospital it
is estimated that up to 200 workers will be
required. The total amount spent on the
entire project as of the beginning of June is
now over 5 million euros. All the necessary
block work will be completed within the
next 3 weeks which will allow for the
erection of the steel frame roof.
EU Commissioner urges Bonane
to submitt Information Regarding
the Council's Non Compliance
with Habitatsi Directive.
Responding to representations which I
made to the EU Commissioner for the
Environment about the objections of
Bonane Community Council to the Kerry
County Council proposal to use the River
Sheen as a source for the Kenmare Water
Supply, Commissioner Poto nik has stated
that "should you have any specific issues
regarding the compliance with the Water
Framework Directive or the Habitats
Directive and feel that they were not
addressed within the permitting procedure,
the Commission will examine these where
new information is made available to them."
Along with the Bonane Community
Council, I would prefer to settle the matter
by reasonable debate with the County
Council. Foremost among objections is that
Kerry County Council did not carry out a
full EIA (Environmental Impact
Assessment). Bonane Community Council
have received legal opinion that in areas as
Kenmare News
sensitive as the Sheen Valley and Kenmare
Bay, with so many SAC's likely to be
affected, a full EIA should be required. An
Bord Pleanala were clearly concerned at the
proposal, and placed restrictions on the
extraction order. I feels that this was
another occasion when it would have been
appropriate to initiate a full EIA.
A similar recent case in Cork, in which
the County Council was required to carry
out an EIA, substantiates legal advice and
creates a precedent for the Bonane case
which has been highlighted with the
intention of resolving the matter without
recourse to the Courts.

Angling
Notes...
With
John O’Hare
I am a bit under the weather after some recent surgery, so
instead of pottering around the shop, I am confined to home
where I sit moping, reading and wishing to speed up my
healing so that I can get back to the serious work of trout
and salmon fishing. My long suffering wife, who stops me
from lifting anything heavier than a bottle of Coors light, had to
get some dog nuts from the boiler house for Balbo. She came
back quickly to tell me that there was what looked like a sick
rat near the footpath. On investigation I found a hedgehog
trying to climb up on to the lawn. I do not know if it was a
male or female but it seemed to be as much under the weather
as myself. I helped it up on the grass and left it to its own
devices, I may be wrong but I got the impression that the poor
animal had been poisoned (people are so careless putting out rat
poison, poison for foxes and crow bait, they never think about
the huge number of innocent birds and animals they kill as a
result.)
My conscience got the better of me, I got a box with some
newspapers, got the hedgehog and made him as comfortable as
I could near the boiler. Mary and Marie in Paul Sheahans
chemist, kindly gave me a syringe and latex gloves, thanks
girls. I tried to give it some milk with the syringe but I knew it
was in vain and the poor thing died. Most people I have spoken
to have never seen a live hedgehog, only dead ones on the side
of the road. What most people seem to know however is that
they are covered in fleas which I understand are not interested
in either humans or other animals though I feel a bit itchy now
that I mention it. Rolo, my last dog who I still miss, used to
corner the odd hedgehog when I left him out for a run around
before going to bed. You would know that he had one because
he made a distinctive sound like ‘uh, uh, uh,’ and, with the help
of a flash lamp, you would find him standing over a curled up
bundle of spines. He would not come away until he had made a
piddle on the poor hedgehog. One night he cornered three of
them together a mother, father and a little baby. I said, “Come
on Rolo let’s go,” but nonetheless he piddled on the mother and
father. I pleaded with him, “Don't do it on the baby,” he looked
at me for a second or two then lifted his leg and made a bigger
piddle on the baby. What the hedgehogs had to say about this
carry on we will never know. I hope all the hedgehogs around
me, are not like the crows, killed off by unthinking people.
What a lot of people do not know is that crows and hedgehogs
eat slugs, the bane of my gardening life. All I can do is hope
some few escaped. I will keep you informed.
I understand that fishing generally is not so good at the
moment, but then not too many anglers have been out
fishing either. The salmon run seems to be getting later every
year with fewer and fewer fish. However for the second time in
as many years, people fishing off The Sound Bridge for
mackerel caught a small grilse of about three pounds on their
feathers. This is most surprising when none are being caught up
the rivers. Pollock and mackerel catches are still scarce this far
up the bay but should be improving from now on. The bass
fishing reopens on the fifteenth of June so we should have a
more positive angling report next month. Until then keep
fishing, as the line in the water catches the fish.
People spend, and have spent, their whole lives in the
pursuit of happiness. Over the years in a belief that wealth
and property was the answer we have seen them like the
lemmings following each other over a cliff in a vain attempt to
find it. You can see what has happened to our people and our
country. I am no sage but I can tell you this, from my
experience your health is your wealth, and you will never find
happiness until you stop looking for it.

After a short 6 year break, the
McCarthy family are back in
running P.F. McCarthy’s.
They have spent the last few months
completely cleaning and repainting the pub
in preparation for opening up and serving
really good quality, great value pub food
and to re-establishing themselves as “the
place” to go for live music in town.
Jerry is still behind the bar to welcome
you with his endless supply of jokes and
quips and the McCarthy’s are delighted to
welcome Lorien who has taken charge of
the kitchen. Together, she and Margaret
have come up with a fresh new menu for
the pub. Already the Ribs & Wings Combo
and local supplier Paudie Fuller's Kerry
Cow Beef Burgers are proving to be the
most popular dishes on the menu. You can
even sample some of Kenmare Ice Cream’s

Summers in Kenmare over the decades have featured
numerous festivals all at various times from the TOSTAL
celebrations in the mid 1950’s, several years of
Agricultural and Horticultural Shows, Carnivals, with
Donkey Derbys, Festival Queens, fun and games, the sea
food festivals under the title, Fruits De Mer and then the
Cibeals celebrating the Arts and music.
These all ran for several years but have all sadly faded away. Over the
last few weeks on the Kenmare Chronicle face book pages we have been
collecting pictures reflecting these events.
Another fading memory, The Silver Slipper in its 21 years in operation
staged many of the Fruits de Mer functions as well as being a Dance Hall.
The opening function in this years Food Festival in July will feature a
Silver Slipper Supper reflecting the nostalgia of the venue in the festivals
of earlier years. We are hoping to gather more pictures and stories of the
Silver Slipper days so if you have any old photographs or stories of the
Dance Hall and Show Bands as well as Les Fruits de Mer we would really
like to share them with you.
Call into Willowfield Garden Centre or email to
[email protected] if you come across anything. 087 2953990 (
Simon ) All pictures will be scanned and returned as quick as possible.
Thanks for all who have contributed so far with old photographs, stories,
poems and songs, as well as post cards, old programmes and memorabilia.

Shaolin Cosmos Chi Kung is an ancient art and
modern science. Chi Kung or Qigong is one of
the Traditional Chinese therapies and works on
energy flow. Unlike the other therapies, you learn
how to circulate the flow of energy through the
meridians yourself following instruction from a
qualified teacher/therapist.
Many schools teach Chi Kung exercises or form either
separately or before a Tai Chi class. It is important to know that
Chi Kung exercises without energy flow are only Chi Kung
exercises and miss the essence of this wonderful art. The Chi or
Energy Flow is the essence and is paramount to overcoming
chronic or degenerative illness.
Chi Kung exercises help to build up the energy in the
meridian but it is essential that it is then allowed to flow for
healing, mental clarity, vitality and spiritual joy.
Remember the words Chi Kung mean ‘Energy Circulation’!
In the Shaolin Chi Kung Clinic in Kilgarvan, clients attend to
learn Chi Kung in different ways, through group courses or one
to one consultation.
Group courses are held every six weeks over a weekend and
are suitable for people who suffer from migraine, asthma,
diabetes, back pain, sports injuries, tinnitus, headaches, stress,
anxiety, depression, low self esteem etc. Review courses are
held weekly afterwards, but this is optional.
One to one consultation is mainly for people who suffer from
Cancer, MS, Parkinson’s Disease etc. There are three
programmes available and clients are assessed for suitability. If
accepted, the client attends for a number of days a week for one
year, this ensures careful monitoring of the condition,
motivation, daily practice and encouragement in a nurturing
environment. The yearly contract is to ensure the client returns
to good health and not just remain in their presenting condition.
Shaolin Cosmos Chi Kung or Flowing Chi Kung is one of the
most empowering natural holistic therapies. The body reacts
naturally to the flowing chi thus restoring good health. It is also
practised as a preventative therapy by many people.
Joan Browne is a disciple of world renowned Shaolin
Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit, 1997 Chi Kung Master of the
Year. She teaches and treats people in her clinic and training
centre in Kilgarvan, Co Kerry. She had to go to Malaysia
for this wonderful art, and it is now on your doorstep, no
matter what part of Ireland you come from!

Parliamentary Questions
The following are some of the questions I recently put forward:
The Government should give clear direction with regard to people living
overhead of a small business who pay rates. These people should not have to pay
double taxation on that property – i.e commercial rates and the household charge.
What steps are being put in place to ensure that there will never be a repeat of the
debacle that the workers in Vita Cortex in Cork had to endure?
Can any mechanism be put in place to ensure that drilling exploration companies
would offer a fair share and proportion of the jobs to Irish people?
There should be a non-profit sector assisting people who are having difficulty
with their mortgages and there should be a strengthened financial ombudsman to
help in this crisis.
People on CE Schemes who want to avail of up skilling and Skillnet courses are
being debarred from doing so as they are classified as being in employment. Is it
not discrimination to debar them from further training?
What is being done to reduce the waiting times for amputees in Cork and Kerry
who are waiting for prosthetics.
Is there any national policy proposed, with regard to the National Finance
Agency, to work with local authorities to enable them to come up with proposals
to help people to continue paying their housing loans at an agreed reduced rate.
People are presently struggling to pay their loans.
Processing of applications a shambles. It is not right or fair to think that, at the
end of May 2012, applicants for carer’s allowance who submitted their
applications in January, are being told that they are only presently processing
applications that went in during July/August of 2011.
The buck stops with the Minister. I am branding the whole system a disgrace to
think that it is back logged so much. It is not the genuine workers and the
Department that are at fault. It is their management who are not addressing the
problem that are to blame and ultimately of course the Minister.
Vodafone. I have been in contact with Obelisk, the maintenance contractors for
Vodafone, about the continuously bad service in Bonane and also in parts of
Kilgarvan. Remedial works are required to the transmitter in Bonane and if this
investment is not provided soon the people will continue to have an unreliable
service, which is totally unacceptable. The same applies for Kilgarvan and I will
work to ensure that this situation is rectified as soon as possible.
Voting. The fact that this Government chose to hold the recent referendum on a
Thursday, and by doing so disenfranchised many people from exercising their
democratic right to vote, is a disgrace. It has been a long held tradition of present
and past Governments to hold elections on a Thursday. What exactly are they
afraid of? Are they afraid that if young people are home for the week-end and
able to vote that they may go against the Government of the day? Is this the
reason why elections are still not held at week-ends?
It is obvious that the best day for voting would be a Saturday. Schools and public
buildings would not have to shut down and people would be in a better position
to go to vote. I am raising this issue in the Dail in the coming weeks as I believe
it to be an important issue.
Home Help Hours. I recently raised in the Dail the situation with regard to the
effect that the cuts in the home help hours is having on people receiving care and
indeed the people giving care. It is a terrible thing to give a service to people and
then take it away, which is what is happening at present. Does the Government
not realize that the cheapest and most efficient way of caring for our elderly
people is in their own homes? If you are unable to do this, and a person has to be
hospitalized or taken into a nursing home, the cost of this would far outweigh the
very small costs incurred in giving care at home.
Over ½ million hours of home help hours has been wiped out in recent times and
the indications are that there will be further cuts. This does not make financial
sense and it is putting the Carers under extreme pressure. I know of many
instances of people giving care and staying a lot longer in the homes that they are
working in than they are actually getting paid for. The State is very lucky to
have such excellent people giving care to elderly people in their homes and it is
just a shame that they are not being treated fairly.
Pier Wall. I am currently trying to secure funding to ensure that repairs are
carried out to the pier wall which is starting to fall into the water. It is not too
big a job to do now but if it is neglected it would be a major job and involve
considerable costs. I hope to get this issue sorted very shortly.
Save our Small Schools. A deputation, which included Mr. Paul McCarthy,
Principal of Lauragh National School travelled from all over Ireland to meet with
members of the technical group and myself last week in the Dail. A private
members motion will be heard in the Dail on the 3rd and 4th July calling on the
Government to ensure that our small schools will not be closed or endangered in
the way that is currently being proposed. On Wednesday 4th July a protest will be
organized and I would strongly urge teachers, parents and students from all over
Ireland to travel to Dublin, if at all possible, to protest against these Government
cuts and to show the Government and its supporting members that there is total
opposition to such moves. Our small schools are the back bone of the fabric of
our society and we must do everything that we can to ensure that they are
retained.
Mr. Remy Benoit RIP It was with great sadness that the people of Kenmare
heard of the death of Mr. Remy Benoit after a bravely fought illness. Remy and
his wife Natalie came to Kenmare in the mid-1980’s and opened a successful
business at the top of the town. Shortly after that they bought what was then
Kenmare Salmon from Kevin Cooper and, in conjunction with their manager
Sean Jones, have since run a highly successful company giving great employment
locally.Remy will be sadly missed by all his friends and indeed all his employees
both past and present. They will remember him for being generous, fair and
kind. On my own behalf, and on behalf of the people of this region which
benefited greatly by Remy and Natalie coming to Kenmare all those years ago, I
want to express my sincerest sympathies to Natalie, their sons Cyprian and Basil
and their extended families. May he rest in peace.
Johnny Healy-Rae MCC
The following are issues that I am dealing with in the Kenmare/Kilgarvan area
I'm glad as a result of a meeting with the South Kerry Partnership that, with their
assistance, a bus driver will be appointed to the Black Valley Community Council
to help them to maintain their bus service from Kenmare to the Black Valley
school. I would like to thank the South Kerry Partnership and I'm glad to have
been involved in helping with this.
The lights in Scarteen Park should be fixed by now and I have also requested that
the lights out the Kilgarvan Road towards the Old Church be repaired
immediately. Hopefully we won't go through the same fiasco as the lights out the
Templenoe Road.
I would like to wish the best of luck to the Tidy Towns in this year’s competition
and to thank the volunteers for the tremendous work they have put in.
I allocated 8000 to out of my councillor’s allocation to ensure that much needed
resurfacing work will be carried out on Templenoe Road, Kilgarvan Village and
the Bog Road . This work is due to be done over the next few months.

Kerry House Management
Caring for your home while you are away
What is going
on at your home
when you are
not there?
Kerry House
Management offer a
professional service
who will call in and
check on your
property regularly;
weekly, fortnightly or
monthly, you choose
the frequency of visits. Following each visit, we let you know
what is happening and that all is well.
When you are not there, we can do some jobs for you to maintain
the ‘lived in’ look. The jobs that you would do if you were there,
mowing the lawn, refreshing garden pots or tubs with seasonal
flowers. If small maintenance jobs are required, we can do these
too and for larger jobs we will call local trades people to get best
value on your behalf, ensuring work is carried out to the building
standards required by HomeBond. We can arrange for your home
to be cleaned, ready for you or your guests’ arrival.
During the summer months, the care needed is usually the lawns
and occasionally your decking may need another coat of
preservative.
The winter months can be quite different as we have experienced
over the last few years, we may have strong winds and bad weather
to cope with. Following extreme weather conditions of wind,
storms or freezing conditions, KHM visits all of ‘our’ properties to
check no trees have blown down, the heating (if applicable) is still
on and just to check, so we can email our customers to let them
know that all is well.
When you come home, we can have food in your fridge and the
heating on, so when you arrive you will find your home warm,
snug and cosy.
With the current economic climate in mind, our reasonable rates
reflect this and give excellent value for the peace of mind they
offer.

Summer time and the gardening is easy !...if
we had a summer ! But, we cant stop the
rain by complaining...etc . So, we might as
well just get on with it and make the most of
the good weather when it arrives. Making it
nice and snappy and easier to read than last
month, weʼll get on with the months
gardening tasks quickly before the sun
comes out.
1.
2.
3.
If you lawn is taking a while to green up you can still
use some lawn feed with moss and weedkiller included
to get the lawn looking healthy again. Remember to
apply just before it rains and donʼt cut the grass for
several days afterwards.
New trees and shrubs can still be planted but make
sure to water them frequently even though it has been
raining a lot.
Keep an eye out for pests and diseases on Rose
bushes. Leaf spots and rusts will be enjoying the
damp conditions and the aphids/greenfly will be
plentiful over the next few weeks as it warms up.
Spray frequently with Rose Clear.

Plant up your summer patio containers with mixtures
of Geranium, Begonia, Fuchsia, trailing Petunia and a
mixture of summer annuals like, Marigold, Lobelia,
Allysum, and many more. Remember to feed regularly
with a Tomato feed when watering. Watch out for bugs
too.
5. In the vege garden slugs are a real problem this year.
Keep beer traps topped up with beer and use slug
baits where necessary to keep the numbers down as
they could destroy your freshly planted seedlings and
young plants over night.
6. There is still time to sow salad seeds, lettuce, spring
onions and peas and beans for end of summer
cropping.
7. Spray against potato blight at regular intervals from
now on.
8. Help Tomatoes pollinate by transferring pollen from
one flower to its neighbour with the help of a small
paintbrush.
9. Make sure all spring flowering shrubs are pruned back
before mid June to ensure flowering again next spring.
10. And now you have all that done, remember the garden
is a great place for entertaining after the Sports
Programmes on the TV this summer and hopefully the
weather will match the sizzling of the BBQ and we will
have something to celebrate! So, there you are now,
..summer time and the gardening is easy !
Check out Willowfield Garden Centre on face book for

Bay Health Club offers
unique Summer Camp
The Bay Health Club is hoping to offer a unique Summer Camp,
namely The Rookie Lifeguard programme which is the junior award
scheme of the RLSS Ireland. For most children Rookie Lifeguard
will be the first opportunity to explore water safety and alternative
safe aquatic play.
The Rookie skills make Rookies aware of how to take better care
of themselves, their family and friends, and give them the
information they need to promote water safety in their day to day
activities. The awards contain survival, rescue and sports skills as
well as Life Support and water safety elements.
Rookie Lifeguard is primarily aimed at children aged 8 – 12 years
although most of the skills can be taught to people of all ages.
Starting with Stage 1 of the Bronze Award and progressing through
to Stage 3 of the Gold Award, Rookie Lifeguard begins at an ability
level suitable for swimmers who have just learned to swim and
progresses to the level of performing Lifesaving tows.
Also parts of the Rookie Lifeguard Programme are the Water
Safety, Life Support and Bolt-on Awards. These Bolt-on Awards
offer varied extra skills, wet and dry, that Rookies can achieve to
push themselves further and provide encouragement between the
core awards.
Rookie Lifeguard is part of the National Plan for Teaching
Swimming (NPTS) developed by the Amateur Swimming
Association although it can also be run as a stand-alone course by
Lifesaving Clubs, Leisure Centres, Swim schools and as part of
School swimming lessons. The Rookie Lifeguard Water Safety
Award fulfils all of the Key Stage 2 water safety elements of the
National Curriculum.

Race report for Fastnet
Schull Olympic triathlon
by Mike Merrigan
Friday evening..
Decided this year to travel down to
Schull the evening before so I could
register and collect my race number.
The plan was also to cycle the bike leg
and check all was in working order for
race day. Also wanted to have a drive
on the run route to to check it out.
Myself and team mate Paul travelled down together in his van
which can be easily identified with a number of Iron man finisher
stickers on it. I found it amusing that we spent more time and care
packing our bikes into the van than we would with our kids, my
bike was wrapped in bubble wrap while Paul's was tucked in to a
fine woollen rug! We made it down to register a bit later than
planned and signed in and got our goodie bags. Noticed the sea was
a bit choppy and the wind was up, but forecast was better for the
morning. In the end we drove both the cycle route ( an out and
back along the coast road ) and the run course ( also an out and
back) . After finding a pitch for my tent we settled down for the
night and enjoyed a good nights sleep.
Race day..
Got up early so I could get all my gear organised and get my bike
racked in a good position. The weather couldn't have been better,
with a clear blue sky and not a breath of wind. Was so glad I
decided to drive down last night and avoid all the stresses of having
to register and park with the race ahead of me. Was great to see a
few other club mates from Kenmare down for the event all kitted
out in our red and black kit. About an hour before the race start, the
race day nerves have kicked in and I just try and relax by going
trough my usual routine of checking and double checking all my
gear is laid out and ready for action, (bike racked and in right gear,
bike shoes clipped on and tied up with elastic bands with a good
blast of talk, helmet positioned and unclipped, run shoes positioned
for easy access plus drink and gels ready to go).
Swim..
After the race briefing all 400 competitors were ushered down to
the slip way and as I was in the first wave I got in to warm up and
seal my wet suit and goggles. The swim route was in a triangular
direction and measured 750 meters and as I was warming up I
picked out some land marks to help me navigate my way around
the course. I headed back to the slipway and as I had my back
turned, the starter gun went; that's the first time that's happened to
me but I had no choice but to get on with it and try and make up
some lost ground. Found the swim very tough and tight at the
marker buoys and seemed to be on top of or underneath somebody
for most of it. To be honest I was glad when it was over and was
back on dry land. Sprinted up to transition while removing my
swim hat and goggles and unzipped my wetsuit.
Bike leg..
Reached my bike in good time and removed my wetsuit, put on my
helmet and jogged up to the bike mount line. I usually find the bike
leg the most enjoyable but for some reason today the gas just wasn't
there! But all the same the new bike did me proud and I made up a
lot of lost ground on the swim. The final descent into Schull was
very fast so made a concerted effort to hold back and start to focus
on the run ahead. Again had a good transition and re racked the
bike, removed helmet and got on running shoes. Paul was waiting
for me in transition as he had unfortunately punctured before he
even got out on the bike. He ran the full 5k with me offering
encouragement and kept me focused on keeping the effort up, but
again found the going tough today and was delighted to see the
finish.
Must admit Schull tri club run a great event and would highly
recommend it. The marshals and course were first rate and I will
definitely be back next year to improve on my time.

KENMARE HURLING TEAM
SHL Division 1
Kenmare/Kilgarvan 2-9
Ballyheigue 2-13
Four points between the teams in the end in
what was generally a good, open, clean
game of hurling. Ballyheigue were worth
the win but Kenmare were not far off them
and were indeed a little misfortunate with
the two first half goals – one coming from a
rebound from the upright straight into the
palm of a Ballyheigue forward – while
Kenmare had one a great chance hit the
post and pop straight up into hand of the
grateful ‘keeper.
Kenmare/Kilgarvan had a bright start with
points from Liam O’Shea, Kevin
O’Sullivan, Keith Harrington and the lively
Glen Egan all in the first ten minutes.
Ballyheigue had been slow to start but
began to get a grip at midfield and by the
20th minute led by two points, 0-6 to 0-4.
Then the north Kerry outfit got their first
goal from the rebounded point effort and
two minutes later got a second to stretch
their lead to eight. Liam O’Shea pointed for
the home side to leave it 0-5 to 2-7 at the
break.
The sides swopped points at the beginning
of the second half but Kenmare/Kilgarvan
resurrected their challenge with a fantastic
goal from Glen Egan who followed up on
46 minutes with a lovely point on the run.
Ballyheigue though just kept tacking on
points to stay four or five points to the
good.
Kevin O’Sullivan goaled on 49 minutes and
he likewise showed his repertoire with a
point three minutes later. Glen Egan
finished with another point but
Kenmare/Kilgarvan could just not get close
enough to push Ballyheigue to the wire. A
fine summers evening with the pitch in
beautiful condition but unfortunately
coming up just short on the scoreboard.
Kenmare/Kilgarvan: Derek Harrington;
Tommy O’Sullivan, DJ Brennan, Kevin
O’Connor; Aiden Crowley, Maurice
Fitzgerald, Eoin O’Sullivan; Ciaran
O’Sullivan, Cian Crowley; Glen Egan (13), Jimmy Wharton, Liam O’Shea (0-2);
Kevin O’Sullivan (1-3), Keith Harrington
(0-1), Connie Cremin.
Subs: Pa Cremin.
Hurling: The Kenmare/Kilgarvan hurling
team has had a tough time of it against
north Kerry opposition with a few trips to
St. Brendans featuring prominently in the
past month. In the South Kerry Junior
Hurling League Kilgarvan posted a good
win over us last week but our Junior hurlers
ahd a great result the week previous beating
St. Pat’s 5-14 to 0-4 away.
In Football the Senior team has been
flying – a great win in the last round again
away to St. Pat’s on a scoreline of 3-9 to 18 puts us up at the top of the table. The
Junior footballers have had mixed results
with a good win over Sneem followed by a
heavy defeat away to Waterville who have a
very strong team.
The Kerry County Board will be running
a "Poc Fada" competition at Senior and
U/16 level, on Wednesday 19th of June, at
6.30pm in Austin Stacks Park,
Tralee. Each year Kerry G.A.A
send a representative at Senior and
U 16 level to the Munster Final on
July 14th in Thurles where they
will compete in the "Poc Fada
Munster Final".
The winner of the Kerry Puc Fada
will win * A Kerry Tracksuit
* A full Kerry Kit.

interested.

Family Fun Day 2012
Inter’s Family Fun Day at the end of May was
a great day for all concerned, with a nice
crowd and a very nice atmosphere. The
weather was reasonably good, except for a
couple of bad showers during the 10k walk,
but this didn’t stop the hardy walkers and
runners on the day. The competitions on the
pitch were well organised, with over 20 super
prizes ranging from footballs to all-weather
tracksuits. This is a great family day out, and
looks set to be an annual fixture on the
calendar from now on.
The club would like to thank all the organisers
on the day, the chefs, safety stewards, games
organisers and also our audio visual expert
who put in a great days work despite a
crippling hangover.
There are some sponsorship cards still
outstanding, please do your best to return
them as quickly as you can.
Sponsorship for Inter Kenmare
We’re delighted to announce that the new
sponsorship deal with the Coachmans
Townhouse Hotel has been renewed again.
Having local sponsors like Siobhan and
Padraig that are willing to invest in a local
sport club is brilliant, and the club are
delighted to renew our association with them.
We’ll hopefully get the chance to say thanks
during the Euro 2012 games coming up.
Euro 2012
By the time this goes to print, Euro 2012 will
be underway, and hopefully Ireland are still in
with a chance of qualifying. To mark the
tournament, Inter are running a Euro 2012
competition. Tickets are 10, and get you a
random combination of two teams. The
winners of the competition will be tickets with
a pair of teams that get:
The most goals, the least goals and the
tournament winner. It sounds complicated, but
when you get your ticket, all will be
explained. Progress will be updated regularly
during the tournament on the Inter website –
you’ll be able to check how your teams are
doing on a daily basis. Also, tickets can be
bought right up to the final, as all the
combinations and numbers are in sealed
envelopes. Contact any club member if you’re
interested. We’d like every member to try and
buy one ticket and sell one – contact Charlie
Vaughan on 086-8188858 if you can help.
Coaching 2012/2013
The club is appealing for coaches and
managers at all level from u11 to Senior A to
come forward as early as possible this year.
Anyone interested in helping out with a team
will be accommodated, and we’d like to hear
from you as early as possible so we can mix
experienced coaches with newcomers, and get
bookings in early for training courses.

Under 16 Report
The Inter under 16 squad finished their 6th
year of schoolboy soccer this year, and now
move on to the big leagues, with under 17 and
youths and hopefully the senior squads.
Manager John Holland has been with the
same squad since they first started, and over
the years the players and management have
built up a tremendous team spirit that will
hopefully continue for a few years to come.
John has compiled a report of the players
journey from under 11 to adult soccer below.
U16’s bid farewell to Kerry
Schoolboys League
By John Holland
Inter Kenmare’s U16’s completed their league
programme, and involvement with the Kerry
Schoolboys League, on Tuesday 15th May
2012 in a hotly contested County Shield
League Final vs. Ballyheigue at Mounthawk
Park, Tralee. A win was essential for Inter, but
more of that anon.
This team began its involvement in Schoolboy
soccer in September 2007. Their first fixture
was at home vs. Killarney Athletic on the 15th
September 2007, which they lost narrowly 23. The team that day was; in goal Ray
O’Shea, a full back line of Alan Murphy
Reeve, Patrick Clifford, David Cremin and
Paudie O’Sullivan, in midfield were Cian
Moriarty, Joshua Holland, Fintan Kennedy
and John Murphy, upfront was Stephen
O’Sullivan and Fionan O’Sullivan. On the
bench were Dara Siochru Pat Spillane and
Bryan O’Shea. The team were to gain revenge
on Athletic when they defeated them in the
National Cup 6-3 away on the 27th October
2007. By then the squad was augmented by
Diarmuid Quill, Sean Sheehy and Killian
Spillane. The scorers in that famous win were
Stephen O’Sullivan 2, a Fionan O’Sullivan
hat trick and Killian Spillane 1. The National
Cup always provided great drama and
excitement for this team adding an exotic
twist to the Kerry league. The team always
acquitted themselves well. In this particular
season they went out on penalties to
Caherdavin Celtic from Limerick City coming
agonisingly close to going on to represent
Munster.
The team had proved they were more than
capable of competing against the best teams in
Kerry in the Premiership division. In the
following season, 2008/9, the squad adopted
David Crowley and Tiernan O’Shea to its
ranks and after dispatching Mastergeeha in the
cup lost a lost a hard fought Cup Quarter
Final in extra time to an up and coming
Dingle team. The team finished a creditable
4th in a 6 team Premier division which
featured the best two teams of any schoolboy
era namely Park and Killarney Celtic who had
the pick of Kerry between them. However, the
team were scandalously relegated to division
1 for the following 2009/10 season because
Listowel Celtic, who had finished 5th, 4
points lower than Inter Kenmare, could be not
be relegated to division One because they
were fielding a ‘B’ team in that division. This
unjust decision robbed Inter of the chance to
regularly measure themselves against the
better teams. However, in the 2009/10 season
they narrowly lost out to Ballyhar Dynamos
for the honour of winning Division One. That
season witnessed the welcome addition of
David Hallissey, Reese Dillane and Conor
Murphy to the panel.
The team remained largely intact in 2010/11
although the many sporting demands on these
young lads took their toll on some fixtures,
such as away to Mountshannon of County
Clare in the National Cup where a depleted
panel put in a gutsy performance only to lose
3-2 to a late strike from the Banner men. The
team battled bravely to stay in contention on
all fronts with some notable wins along the
way. The lads proved to be tactically astute
and able to switch formation if the situation
demanded it.
So to the 2011/12 season in which the team
managed to get to the Kerry Cup Semi-Final
after a merited Quarter Final win away from
home against Premier outfit Fenit.
The squad for the 20011/12 season bears a
remarkable similarity to that very first team
who trotted out against Killarney Athletic way
back in 2007. This is a great testament to the
character and commitment of this bunch of
lads and their love of the game.
Inter U16 Squad 2011/12: Ray O'Shea, Alan
Murphy Reeve, Sean Sheehy, Conor Murphy,
Joshua Holland, Dara O'Shea, Bryan O'Shea,
Fintan Kennedy, Killian Spillane, Paudie
O'Sullivan, Diarmuid Quill, David Crowley,
Patrick Clifford, Fionan O'Sullivan, David
Cremin, Mark Hickey, Darrol Teahan,

Thanksgiving
Novena to the Sacred Heart. Dear
Heart of Jesus, in the past I have
asked for many favours. This time
I ask you this very special one.
(Mention favour) Take Dear Heart
of Jesus and place it within your
own broken heart where your
father sees it. Then in his merciful
eyes, it will become your favour
not mine. Amen. Say this prayer
for three days, promise publication
and favour will be granted. Never
known to fail (CH)
