Following on from the recent Archaeology Open Day at the excavation of a 19th-century house in Curraghatoosane, people now have a chance to hear more about the interesting discoveries on the route of the Listowel Bypass at an illustrated talk during Heritage Week. The excavations, which are now complete, also uncovered Bronze Age Fulachtaí fia and possible cremation burials, as well as charcoal-production kilns and timbers from a possible medieval building which were dumped in a bog after its demolition. Analysis of pollen preserved in a peat core taken from the adjacent bog has revealed how the landscape around Listowel appeared to our ancestors about 4,000 years ago and how it changed as a result of human activity over the following 2,000 years. Archaeologists Tony Bartlett and Fintan Walsh from Archaeological Management Solutions will describe the results of all this work and discuss how their discoveries are furthering our understanding of Listowel’s past.

ABBEYDORNEY GOLF SOCIETY extends deepest sympathy to the Donovan families on the recent death of Anne Donovan, The Village Abbeydorney, Rest in Peace

DEATHS The death took place of Margaret McElligott (née Spillane ), affectionately known as Peggy Mac, of 3 St Patrick’s Terrace, Tarbert. Peggy, aged 88, died in respite care on Thursday 1 August. She was wife of the late Johnny and was pre-deceased by her son-in-law James O’Brien. Peggy was born in Lixnaw and came to live in Moyvane with her grandmother. She worked as a servant girl on the Kissane family farm and was no stranger to hard work. It was here that she met her future husband, Johnny McElligott. In the 1950’s with Johnny working for local building contractors they moved into one of the new houses at St Patrick’s Terrace, Tarbert where they reared a family of six girls and two boys. In the mid 1960’s with construction work in progress at Tarbert ESB Power Station enterprising Peggy kept lodgers and everybody who stayed at No.3 spoke of the home comforts there when far from home. Peggy was renowned for her home baking and there was a welcome for everybody and nobody left empty handed. Her remains reposed at St Mary’s Funeral Home on Sunday and Requiem Mass took place on Monday 5 August. The Mass was concelebrated by Fr Kevin McNamara assisted by priests from parishes in North Kerry and West Limerick. Her favourite song which she always sang so beautifully was that lovely old ballad ‘Eileen McMahon’ sung by AnnMarie O’Riordan at her funeral Mass. Fr Kevin in a lovely homily covering all aspects of her life, spoke of her 17 years selling the Irish Catholic at the Church and referred to her as a great ‘communicator’. This theme was echoed by poet Dan O’Connor in his tribute poem ‘The Requesting Queen’ read by her son Mike in his address. Peggy could have hosted her own radio show as no Sunday passed without requests from Peggy Mac in Tarbert to Radio Kerry sending good wishes to neighbours and friends on the occasion of birthdays or other family events. After the funeral Mass interment took place to Kilnaughtin Cemetery where she was laid to rest beside her late husbnd Johnny. Sympathy of the community is extended to her sons Michael and Gerard, daughters Mary, Máiread, Kay, Martina, Angela and Jacqueline, brothers, sisters, grandchildren, great grandchildren, relatives, extended family, neighbours and many friends. Her smiling face will be missed agus gan amhras ni beidh a leithéid le Peggy Mac arís ann. The death took place unexpectedly on Friday 9 August of Elizabeth (Liz) O’Carroll aged 74 of 9 St Patrick’s Terrace, Tarbert. Liz was born to Mickey and Mary Wallace of Bridge Street, Ballylongford. She was married to the late P .J. O’Carroll of Tullahinell, and worked on the family farm. Following her husband’s death she moved to Tarbert where she spent the last 31 years of her life rearing her two children Maurice and Marie. She was very happy in Tarbert and always had a pleasant smile on her face and time for a story. Her remains reposed at St Mary’s Funeral Home on Monday last. Requiem Mass took place on Tuesday 6 August and was concelebrated by Fr Sean Hanafin, Fr Jimmy O’Hanlon (cousin) Fr Pat O’Brien, Fr Philip O’Connell and Fr John O’Connor. Interment took place in St. Mary’s New Cemetery. Sympathy of the community is extended to her son Maurice and partner Caroline, daughter Marie, sisters Nora and Maura, brother in law Tommy Quane, relatives, neighbours and friends. The funeral also took place last week of Patricia Bewick (née Stanley ) of Shannon Breeze, Kilcolgan, Tarbert and formerly of Elephant Castle, London. The deceased grew up in South London and was very much involved in church activities there. She later married John Bewick and when he died she moved to Tarbert some years ago. She settled in Kilcolgan having purchased a house there. She died at University Hospital, Kerry on 17 July. Her Requiem Mass was celebrated in St Mary’s Church, Tarbert on Tuesday 6 August by Fr Sean Hanafin and Fr Philip O’Connell. Interment took place in St Mary’s New Cemetery after her funeral Mass.Sympathy is extended to her son John, daughter Anne (White), brother John, partner Len, son-in-law Thomas White, daughter in law Sarah, extended family, relatives, neighbours and friends. Sympathy also to Margaret and Bill Noonan, Kilpadogue on the death of Margaret’s sister Eileen Danaher (née Ahern) late of Main Street, Glin who died on Wednesday 7 August.

KERRY FOLK TALES by Donny Mahoney

‘You need a boot to kick and hands and shoulders to mark your opposition. But without a sharp brain, you’ll never make it as a Kerry footballer.’ Follow Colm from his days as a tiny, freckle-faced kid – the youngest of seven in a GAA-mad family from Killarney – all the way to Croke Park, where he won five All-Ireland titles. This is the story of how a boy who everyone said wasn’t big enough or strong enough to wear the green and gold jersey of Kerry became one of the greatest Gaelic footballers of all time.


Continues this Saturday 17th August @ 12noon

Eléna and Donagh McElligott, Sonny Egan, Peter Doyle, Sarah Murphy, Ciara Shannon, Pádraig mac Ionnrathaigh, Aideen Quinlan and Conor Breen, all members of Lixnaw Comhaltas who have qualified for Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann competitions which will be held in Drogheda next weekend

Happy group from Tarbert outside Croke Park after Kerry’s victory last Sunday. The group met up with the legendary James Fitz (originally from Tarbert) who attends all key GAA fixtures in Jones Road where he issues memorabilia of GAA legends both past and present to the general public

The teams have to do it all over again this Thursday evening in Mountcoal (St Senans) at 7 o’clock! A break in the weather saw the stand in Finuge packed last Thursday evening for the minor final of Division 1 of the North Kerry League when we took on the combination side of Asdee/Ballylongford/Ballydonoghue/ Clounmacon. Heavy rain was the order of the day and both teams must be complimented for an excellent game in trying conditions. Our opponents got off to the better start and an penalty saw them pull away into an early lead. Our lads then settled themselves, took control of the game and sent over five points without reply. At the short whistle we had our noses in front, leading by the bare minimum, 0-7 to 1-3. The rain continued to fall for the second half and the teams gave it their all. Both teams were guilty of indiscipline and both were issued with yellow and black cards. We had a two-point lead going into the final minutes as the combination side threw everything at us. Despite our good defensive work, they got the points to earn themselves a draw. The final score read 0-12 to 1-9. The replay is on Thursday evening in Mountcoal (St Senans) at 7 o’clock. Beale juniors had a disappointing week on the playing field. Struggling for numbers, we succumbed to the challenges of Moyvane in Pâirc de Staic on Wednesday evening in the County Junior League, Group 5. We trailed by four points at the final whistle, 0-13 to 0-9. Our final round game was on Friday when we travelled to Churchill. The result here would decide semi-final pairings. Again we fielded a rather under-strength team and the result was not in our favour. We found scores hard to come by in the first half and trailed by 1-6 to 0-1 at the interval. We tried hard to pull it back on the changeover and had our scoring boots on. However, it proved to high a hill to climb and we were still adrift at the final whistle by 2-11 to 1-7. Its nearing that time of year again when the much anticipated North Kerry Championship is on the minds of footballing enthusiasts. Beale juniors contest the quarter final of the North Kerry Intermediate Cup on Saturday next at 7 o’clock against Moyvane. Venue to be confirmed. The winners will meet Ballydonoghue in the semi-final. Byes have been awarded to Emmets, Ballydonoghue and Castleisland Desmonds. The North Kerry Senior Championship draw will take place on Friday, 6th September, with live streaming, at 8.30pm in McMunn”s Bar and Restaurant, Ballybunion. First round games begin on October 6th. The draws for the Under-21 and Minor Championships also take place on that evening. We will contest Division 1 of the Minor Championship. Other teams include Asdee/Ballydonoghue/Ballylongford, Desmonds and Duagh/Brosna/Knocknagoshel. Teams contesting the Under-21 Championship include Beale, St Senans, Tarbert/Moyvane, Finuge, Asdee/Ballylongford, Emmets, Desmonds, Duagh/ Brosna/Knocknagoshel and Ballydonoghue. Shannon Rangers were defeated by the narrowest margin in the Under-21 County Championship by Laine Rangers. The final score read 3-10 to 3-9. On duty from Beale were Daragh Buckley, Seamie O’Sullivan, Cillian Courtney and Fionnán Toomey.

COUNTY LEAGUE Asdee 3-8 Killarney Legion “B”1=10 Asdee had a big win in Killarney to keep their playoff hopes alive going into the final Round of the County League. Despite numbers being tight, Asdee dug deep to see out the game against a dogged Legion side. Darragh Keane opened the scoring with a fine point from play before the home side responded with a couple of points. Darren Russell then finished an excellent team move with a long range point. Next up, John Doran scored a brilliant goal to the top corner after a great turnover by Eoin Kennedy as Legion tried to break. Kennedy then struck for Asdee’s second goal to stretch Asdee’s lead. Legion replied with a goal & a couple of points, prior to Darragh Keane pointing a free after a great run by Martin Collins. Following another two points for Legion, Cyril Dineen then added to his impressive goal tally with a beautiful finish on the stroke of half time. Asdee held a 3-3 to 1-6 lead at the break. The second half started well for Asdee with a lovely point from Mike Breen, who had a fine game at wing back. Another good team move saw Darragh Keane knock over a nice point. Legion replied with a point before Paul O’Carroll kicked a beautiful point from a solo run. Legion kicked another point prior to a lovely long range point from Eoin Kennedy after good work by Eoin O’Carroll in defence. Kennedy then setup Paul O’Carroll for a well taken fisted point for what proved to be Asdee’s final score. Asdee were to squander a number of goal & point scoring opportunities before Legion rallied late on as Asdee gave up possession.Legion managed a further two points but were held out by some fine defending by Eoin O’Carroll, Kieran Kelly & Con Carmody in the full back line, with James Kelly doing very well under pressure in goals. Leaving a four point margin as the final whistle was blown. Jack Keane, Martin Collins, John Doran, Mike Breen, Jack Collins & Shea Doran, when introduced, showed massive work rate throughout & won crucial balls around the middle. While Eoin Kennedy, Darragh Keane, Darren Russell, Paul O’Carroll, Sean Keane, & Cyril Dineen worked hard up front, linking well & kicking some fine scores.

MINORS Asdee/Ballylongford/Ballydonoghue/Clounmacon 1-9 Beale 0-12 Both sides will have to do it all over again after an entertaining game played in miserable conditions at O’Sullivan Park Finuge in the North Kerry Minor League Division 1 Final. There was little to separate these sides in their previous encounter and that is how it turned out again as it was nip and tuck all the way to the final whistle. The combination side got off to a better start and Jack Kennelly who impressed throughout got their opening score with a pointed free,the same player got the only goal of the game shortly after when he was brought down in the square and made no mistake with the resultant penalty. Beale for their part had missed a couple of chances but Barry O’Neill who was equally impressive kicked over a pointed free and Luke Donovan was beginning to find his range as they began to narrow the gap. In an evening where handling errors were aplenty both sides coughed up numerous frees with most close in ones being converted,but as the half wore on it was Beale who were getting on top and took a one point lead into the break. Half Time Score: Beale 0-8 Asdee/Ballylongford.Ballydonoghue. 1-4. On the resumption Beale continued where they left off and were winning primary possession around the middle and slowly began to extend their lead but as scores were hard to comeby they were always within reach of their opponents,and it was some hard runs from Mikey Nolan and James Donegan that slowly reeled them in to leave just a point between the sides with time running out. Eric Daly was also in the thick of the action for Beale and making some equally good runs but a turnover late on led to Brendan O’Neill bringing the sides level and as the game edged into the third minute of injury time neither side could land the winning score although there was some near misses.

Listowel Emmets Ladies Club hosted our u8 & u10 blitz on Saturday 27th July in sunny Frank Sheehy Park. We had a fantastic turnout for the blitz & all the girls had a great morning. Special thanks to all the managers, coaches, parents & volunteers who helped make it a huge success


Both side had a couple of goal chances during the half Beale made Cathal Doran dive full stretch to keep out a goal bound shot while Jack Kennelly had a shot from distance well saved by Aaron Buckley,there was also a couple of goalmouth scrambles to throw into the mix as a good sized crowd urged on their team in a nail biting finish. As the intensity increased so too did the tackling and it envidentaly led to three black cards being issued and a couple of yellow’s by referee Mike Hennessy,However all in all a draw was a fair result and hopefully drier conditions will prevail for the replay for these young players to display their skills.

Referee: Mike Hennessy Ballyduff U-14  NORTH  KERRY  LEAGUE  FINALS  2019 Both Div. 1 and Div. 2  U-14 NKB Coiste-na-nOg Finals were held on Tuesday evening last, August 6th. Pairc na nGael, Clounmacon was the venue for the Div. 2 Final between Tarbert and Duagh, with Dermot Hughes, Emmets, refereeing.Tarbert, who had impressed on their journey to the Final, couldn’t find their rhythm on the night and Duagh took a stranglehold on the game early on and didn’t relinquish it for the hour.Duagh finished convincing winners on a scoreline of Duagh 4-17  Tarbert  0-07 with an amazing personal tally of 3-13 notched by Cormac Dillon. Tom Moran, Chairman of the NKB Coiste-na-nOg paid tribute to both teams before he  presented the trophy to a delighted Fearghal Cudlip, Captain of the Duagh team.Tom thanked McElligott Oils, Asdee for their sponsorship, Clounmacon for their facility and Dermot Hughes for doing a fine job.On the evidence of Duagh’s display in this Final, they will be a danger to all in the Div. 1 of the upcoming NK ‘Chip                                                                                                                                                            The Div. 1 Final between Moyvane and Emmets was a much more keenly fought affair. Both teams arrived unbeaten to Duagh,  to find a very large crowd supporting their respective charges. The quality of the surface in Duagh was exceptional and lent in no small way to the quality of the fare on display despite tricky conditions.Moyvane had the aid of a significant breeze in the opening half and proceeded to dominate the opening 20mins of the half, after which they led by 0-07 to 0-01.The Moyvane scorers were Danny Lyons 2f, Pat Brosnan 2, Diarmuid O’ Connor,Jer Brosnan and Jamie Moloney 1f with Robert Heffernan opening Emmet’s account.Emmets, while under huge pressure, were defending resolutely making Moyvane work hard for every score-indeed Moyvane kicked 6 wides during this period.The final ten minutes of the half were all Emmets as they scored 1-04 without reply-Aaron Carey scored 1-02,Dara Fitzpatrick and Robert Heffernan a point apiece. Patrick O’ Connor levelled matters with a long range point to leave the score at the small whistle   MOYVANE 0-08  EMMETS 1-05. One felt that Emmets were in the better position at this point, with the elements in their favour in the second half but Moyvane were defending champions and would not give up their title easily.The second half was a marvellous contest with a championship feel to it and the result was in doubt until the final few minutes.Jamie Moloney opened the scoring for Moyvane in the 36th min, Dara Fitzpatrick levelled in the 42nd min and within 30 secs the same player goaled for Emmets to put 3 pts between the sides. Danny Lyons pointed twice for Moyvane to leave the minimum in it with 9 mins to play. Fitzpatrick again and Robert Heffernan for Emmets pointed, Jamie Moloney replied for Moyvane - 2pts in it with 4 mins to play.Emmets now made their final surge to win the game-4pts in as many minutes from Glynn Keane,Robert Heffernan,Aidan Chute and Captain Eddie Healy, who at this stage was playing on one leg! Jamie Moloney pointed on the stroke of full time and Aaron Carey scored his second goal of the night in injury time to seal a great victory for Emmets as referee Seamus Mulvihill, St. Senans, who had his customary fine game with the whistle, blew for full time with the scoreline reading  Moyvane 0-13  Emmets  3-12. Massive credit and respect to both sets of players and managements for producing the quality on display in this Final-it is easy to see why Feale Rangers annexed the County C’ship recently at this level.All players left their all on the lush sod, for Moyvane, Luke Mansfield and Conor Sweeney stood out in defence, Patrick O’ Connor and Fionn Mulvihill battled manfully in the middle and all the six forwards were a threat, with a noticeable buzz when Jer Brosnan was on the ball.Moyvane played some lovely flowing football at times but the final finish eluded them on occasions.Credit to Emmets for this also, Bobby Houlihan made two crucial saves in goals, Aindreas Rodriguez and Thomas Kelly were rocks in the defence, Patrick Walsh intelligent,skillful and brave in the sweeper role,the irrepressible Eddie Healy who covered every inch of the field while up front all five forwards were on their game-it is a most impressive statistic that all Emmets scores were from play on the night.           Sean Moriarty, Sec. NKB Coiste-na-nOg thanked McElligott Oils Asdee for their generous sponsorship of  the competition, Duagh for it’s excellent facility and Seamus Mulvihill for a job well done.He commended both teams on their marvellous endeavour before presenting the trophy to a delighted Eddie Healy, Captain of Listowel Emmets amid scenes of great delight. We all look forward to our Championship which will start in early September.
