Superintendent Daniel Keane of Listowel Garda District wants all the Retailers of North Kerry to have a safe and good season for Christmas 2016. The Commissioner has set December 8th 2016 as “Retail Safety Day” which is a national crime prevention date. A detailed analysis of thefts from shops by An Garda Siochana Analysis Service found: · In December, Clothes and Cosmetic thefts increase. · Groceries, Clothing, Cosmetics or Alcohol account for just over three quarters of all thefts. · Around one in five thefts involve the theft of cosmetics; mainly from pharmacies. · Grocery theft remains the highest volume theft type.

· Supermarkets are targeted in over 40% of theft from shops. Small shops, convenience stores & service stations make up 19%. Times Offences Are Committed · Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays are the most common days for thefts from shop. · Almost two thirds of all thefts from shop occur between 12pm and 6pm.


‘Kerry Bravehearts’, a new book written by Kerry journalist and photographer Con Dennehy, was launched before a capacity crowd on almost 700 people in Killarney on Sunday last, November 27th. Launched by Radio Kerry presenter and journalist, Deirdre Walsh, the 270 page book looks deep into the heart and soul of 43 inspirational Kerry people who have overcome, and in many cases continue to overcome adversity in their own personal life. Men, women and children from all over Kerry are featured in the book which brings readers on a journey that is physical, emotional and spiritual. “The launch at the Gleneagle Hotel was an amazing day filled with excitement and emotion. Most of the people featured in the book were interviewed by Deirdre Walsh during the afternoon. Her professionalism shone through and really added to the occasion. The introduction to the book was read by Megan Dennehy. The book, available all over Kerry and beyond from this week, invites each of us to put ourselves in another’s shoes, to see and feel the existence of pain, bravery, love, community and courage. It is a book brought to you by ordinary people who have, and continue to live, extraordinary lives,” said Currow native, Con Dennehy. Each person featured in the book has battled with a range of life changing traumas such as cancer, Parkinson’s disease, depression, brain injury, loss of limbs, strokes, epilepsy, suicide, rare growth disorders and other medical issues. There are also a number of inspirational stories of Kerry people who have done phenomenal work in their own communities. This is the second book by Con Dennehy following the success of ‘Tough as Leather’, the story of World Mountain running champion John Lenihan, in 2015.

Alcohol Theft · One in four thefts of alcohol occur between 2pm and 10pm on Friday or Saturday.

· Views of alcohol shelves and coolers should be clear. Alcohol should be kept away from exits.

Security Tips · Store Design: Design the store lay out so customers must pass the register area and staff to exit the store. Never leave the register unlocked or unattended. Do not display merchandise near the store exits. Avoid multiple entrances and exits · Tidy Up: Keep the store neat and orderly. Full displays and straightened shelves allow employees to see at a glance if something is missing. · View All: Use mirrors to eliminate blind spots in corners that might hide shoplifters. Maintain adequate lighting in all areas of the store. Keep fixtures and displays low for better visibility. · Under Lock and Key: Place small and or expensive items in locked cabinets or behind the counter. Toilets and dressing rooms should be watched at all times. Keep dressing rooms locked and limit the number of items taken in by each customer. Use alarms on unlocked exits and close or block off unused checkout aisles. · Signage: Signs and posters reinforcing security messages should be used. ‘Private Areas’ should be clearly marked. · Security: Use security equipment such as closed circuit television and security tags. Uniformed security guards are also a useful visual deterrent. Listowel Gardai will be out and about meeting with retailers over the coming week to ensure that Retailers are best prepared for the Christmas period ahead.

Pat O'Donnell in 2004, this Christmas the Kilflynn Cancer Support Group is holding its thirteenth annual table quiz. Fr.

Recently I requested Kerry County Council to immediately carry out safety works ie Flashing Amber lights, proper Road Markings , Hedge Cutting (ETC) on all all approaching roads to our Primary Schools in North Kerry for the Safety of all the Pupils attending these Schools. So I'm delighted that the funding to carry out these works has been announced under the Clar 2016. Total Funding for Kerry is €744,964,00 Michael Ring TD, Minister of State for Regional Economic Development, yesterday, announced the allocation of €8.24 million in funding to 651 projects under CLAR 2016. CLAR is a targeted investment programme that aims to provide funding for small infrastructural projects in rural areas that have experienced significant depopulation. The aim of CLAR is to support the sustainable development of identified CLAR areas by attracting people to live and work there. The funding works in conjunction with local funding and on the basis of locally identified priorities. The programme has been effectively closed for new applications since 2009 but was reopened by Minister Ring on the 6th of October 2016 and funding is being provided under these three measures: • Safety package for Schools/Community Facilities • Outdoor Play Facilities Enhancement Scheme/support for the development of Multi Use Games Areas (MUGA). • Local Access Roads

for the next quarter,Thomas Doherty finished superply to the net after good build up play which was started in the half back line by James O'Connor.The same player added another point a minute later and this was followed by a further four Eoin O'Connor (3) Michael Holly (1) before the latter mentioned was on hand to finish to the net after a good passing move. At this stage it was all Bally/Asdee with Conor Carmody chipping over a neat point to further extend their lead in the 17th minute and this was their last score of the half. Ballyduff/Duagh needed scores on the board at this stage if they were to stay in the game and Paudie Shanahan kick started their revival with a point in the 19th minute he followed it up a minute later with a well taken goal a further three points from Shanahan,Jack Sullivan and Michael Kirby closed the gap to leave a half time score Ballylongford/Asdee 2-7 Ballyduff/Duagh 2-4. The second half went along similar lines to the first as Ballyduff/Duagh added two early points to reduce the deficit to a point with Michael Kirby opening the scoring with a pointed free. Eoin O'Connor got a point from play for Bally/Asdee to steady the ship once again,as they went on to take a firm grip on the game with two goals in five minutes. Jack Mulvihill was making some notable runs for Bally/Asdee from his centre forward position and Michael Holly linked up with him on two such occasions in the 9th and 14th minute which resulted in the two aforementioned goals the second from an acute angle. Ballyduff/Duagh upped their game again Paudie Shanahan and Michael Kirby with a point apiece in the 15th and 19th minute and two goals followed in fairly quick succession the first a powerful drive from Jack Sullivan while in between Eoin O'Connor grabbed a point back for Bally/Asdee before Ballyduff /Duagh added their second after a goalmouth scramble. The remaining five minutes was all out attack as both sides pushed for supremacy Conor Carmody added another point for Bally/Asdee while in the dying minutes dangerman Paudie Shanahan was bearing down on the Bally/Asdee goal but a vital dispossession from Sean Carmody saved the day.

We are thrilled to reveal that Graham Norton will be joining us once more in Listowel, on Saturday 3rd June 2017, with his award-winning debut novel Holding. Our Festival dates are 31st May – 4th June 2017.

Graham had a terrific reception here in 2015 for ‘An Evening with Graham Norton’. Tickets sold like the proverbial hotcakes, with the 850 seater venue selling out within hours. Born in Dublin and educated in Cork, Graham Norton is one of the UK's most treasured comedians and presenters. His first major TV appearance was as Father Noel Furlong on Channel 4's Father Ted in the early 1990s. He then secured a prime time slot on Channel 4 with his chat shows So Graham Norton and V Graham Norton. Graham then hosted a variety of shows on BBC One such as Strictly Dance Fever, Andrew Lloyd Webber's How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?, The Eurovision Song Contest and The BAFTA Awards. Known for his quick wit, Graham was soon approached by the BBC to front his own self-titled chat show The Graham Norton Show in 2007; his talent secured him 7 BAFTAs for Best Entertainment Performance and Best Entertainment Programme. He also presents a show on BBC Radio 2 every Saturday and writes a weekly Agony Aunt column for The Telegraph. With his characteristic wry and wicked humour, Graham will be introducing the Listowel audience to his darkly comic and profoundly sad debut novel, Holding, winner of this year's Irish Independent Popular Fiction Book of the Year at the Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards 2016. A skilled storyteller, Graham weaves black humour and emotional intelligence to create a compelling and gripping narrative. Taut and perfectly paced, his characters’ secrets, dreams and heartbreaks come fully to life. Everyone is ‘holding’ on to something - a lost love, an old regret, a deep secret… here’s a brief flavour:

Duneen is a quiet place, far enough from the big towns to have kept its own rhythms. Its residents include downcast policeman PJ who lives a lonely, uneventful life punctuated only by the next meal. The beautiful and mysterious family of three spinster sisters each with their own secrets and sorrows together with a grim discovery on an old farm sets off a chain of events that result in the village's dark secrets and undercurrents coming to life. Tickets for the event are €30 + €3 Booking Fee and will go on sale this Thursday 1st December 2016 at 10am! In other news, the Listowel Writers Week Box Office will be open for their programme of Creative Writing Workshops 2017. This year’s line-up will include mentors such as Richard Skinner, MJ Hyland, Thomas McCarthy, Michael Harding, Ruth Gilligan, Helen Lederer, Ron Rash and Giles Foden.

MATCH REPORTS Courtesy of Kieran Reilly U18's girls Listowel/Tralee v Bantry - It was on a bright fresh afternoon in Listowel where our girls welcomed our visitors from South West Cork. This was the last game of league fixtures. Our U18 had kept an impressive unbeaten record and were wishing to keep that intact. But they knew that the reigning champions were not going to let our girls in green have it there own way. The game started with a flurry of moves and fantastic rucking by both sides, trying to get a foothold. Listowel seem to get the territory and with a Lineout maul the forwards worked together excellently, as the maul stalled only 2mtr from the line it was fed along the backline, which released our winger Sadbh Griffin in the corner. The crowd were really impressed with the standard of play and skill on show by both sides. Like any good team Bantry came back and scored a try, to level it bringing it to half time. The Second half was in the balance and with our girls taking a try within 10 min of the restart Murine Wall converted from Aishling Brosnan try which gave the girls confidence and focus to keep Bantry from their own red zone, with great tactical kicking to play down in the opposition own half. The referee at the end gave Listowel a penalty of which was taking and scored. That made this titanic struggle conclude with a controlled and focused performance by the Kerry Girls. They now join our U15 Girls in the Munster playoff Semi finals to be held on the 10th Dec. CLOTHING: In perfect time for Christmas our brand new clothing range is now available to buy online. Why not surprise a loved one with a Listowel RFC hoodie or t-shirt?

Over 70 supporters traveled to support the boys and a great day was had by all.

FIXTURES :- NKC Semi-final: Ballydonoghue v Listowel on Sunday December 11th in Moyvane.

RESULTS: Kieran Corridan Intermediate Cup Final: Ballydonoghue B ( 1-13) -v- Castleisland B (1-7) Our ‘B’ team had an easier than expected win over Castleisland in the Intermediate cup final played in Duagh on Sunday last. Padraig Lyons from a free and Brian Mason from play put us two points up after as many minutes and from there until the final whistle we never looked in any real danger. Had we taken full advantage of all our chances we could have added another eight or nine points to our final tally. We led at half time seven points to three and struck first in the second half straight from the throw in when captain Martin O’Mahony stretched our lead to five. Inside the final quarter we still only led by five thirteen points to seven after having missed a plethora of chances. With six minutes remaining a pin point pass from Eddie Sheehy to Eric O’Connor who fisted to the net and the game was well and truly over. Castleisland did manage a consolation goal in injury time. Team: Sean Lyons, Declan Behan, John O’Mahony, Joseph Lynch, Kevin Cremin, John Enright, Kieran O’Connell, Martin O’Mahony (capt), Cian O’Mahony, Stephen Foley, Dermot O’Connor, Padraig Lyons, Gearoid Kissane, Kevin O’Donnell, Brian Mason. Subs: William Kissane, Jack O’Connor, Eddie Sheehy, Darren Gogarty, Eric O’Connor, Wayne Dowling, David Foley, Tim Kissane, Dean Dowling, Donal Doyle, Sean Kissane, Thomas Deenihan, Daniel Riordan, Conor Kennelly, Diarmuid Behan, Colin O’Mahony. Management Joseph Riordan, Sel: Michael Joy, Columba O’Connor, Patrick O’Donnell, Trainer: Denis Lynch.


MINORS Bally/Asdee 4-10 Ballyduff/Duagh 4-8. On top for the bigger part of the game Bally/Asdee Minor footballers advanced to the North Kerry Division 2 Final defeating Ballyduff/Duagh by a 2pt margin. Holding big leads at different times in the game they seemed to take the leg off the pedal allowing the opposition back and when the final whistle went they were just holding on. The goal scorers were Michael Holly; (2), Thomas Doherty and Eoin O Connor 1 each. Bally/Asdee will take on either Moyvane/Tarbert or Finuge who contest the other semi final.

LOOKING BACK. Since the club was reformed in 1986 there have been some notable achievements and victories both on and off the field to look back on;


the Opening of Pairc Breathnach; John Kennedys stint as a player and mentor with various Kerry teams along with his involvementwith Clare at both Intercounty and at club level, Eoin Kennedy unlucky not to have captured an All Ireland football medal, John Joe O Carroll first person from the club to be elected to the County Board as Treasurer and at present representing his County as a delegate to Croke Park. County Novice, North Kerry Junior and Senior, Intermediate plus so many more and of course that famous day up in Knockaderry when our Senior footballers created their own bit of history when they say off a fancied Charleville in the Munster Novice Final; certainly a day that will long be remembered not alone in the club but in North Kerry circles and beyond. For such a small club to achieve so much was unbelievable; but credit the Management, Players and our loyal band of supporters who were there to cheer the boys in Black and Amber on to new heights and history. However there is one game that is still talked about amongst our supporters and that will linger long in club and that is that famous evening at Con Brosnan Park, Moyvane in 1991 when our Senior footballers won the North Kerry Senior League Division 2 putting one over on Tarbert who were at that particular time the 1990 Bernard O Callaghan Memorial Senior Football Champions and League Division 1 holders; I suppose it was the first real test that the club had at Senior level and they came out with flying colours. In the end after a terrific game of football victory was achieved by Asdee on a score of; Asdee 2-15 Tarbert 3-9. Captain was Sean Doran and he was presented with the Cup by the then Chairman of the North Kerry Football Board Bernie O Callaghan; Man of the Match went to midfielder Barry Healy. The team and substitutes were; Tom Gorman, Gerdie O Carroll, Tom Kennedy, Sean O Keeffe, Kevin O Callaghan, Mike O Connor, Eric O Neill, Sean Doran, capt, Barry Healy, Micheal O Connor, Paddy Dee, Donie O Keeffe, John Kennedy, J. P. McElligott, John Joe O Carroll. Subs; Tony McElligott, Mike Moloney, Tom Long, Johnny O’Sullivan, Sean White, Martin Costello, Eamon O Connor, Neilie Buckley, John Deenihan, Padraig Vallelly.

SCOR: Scor Sinsear Chiarrai Thuaidh will getting underway early in the New Year giving plenty notice; so the Club would be delighted to hear from any interested in representing the Club in at least one of the following; Figure dancing, Solo Singing, Recitation, Ballad Group, Leiriu, Instrumental Music, Set Dancing and Question Time.Down through the years the club have plenty success in this competition within the County with Recitation, Solo Singing, Quiz excelling at County Final level; The Novelty Act of Nora Stack, Ann Maria Tydings, Gerdie O Carroll and Jack Hennessy got through to the Munster Semi Finals while just one step away from an All Ireland Final were the Ballad Group of Jeanette O Connor, Mary Fagan, Paddy McElligott and Jimmy Quinn along with the late Mick Hennessy in Recitation who got through on two occasions to Munster Finals but failed to get the nod. Of course Asdee did get through to the All Ireland Finals in the Novelty Act during the late 70s but due to unforeseen circumstances they failed to make the journey; those historic names were Kathleen, Kennedy, Helena O Keeffe, Joseph O Keeffe and Martin Mulvihill. The history of Scor has been very healthy in the Parish down through the years and especially with the wealth of talent thats available out there and it would be tremendous if you come forward to represent both your Club and Asdee once again. All you have to do is to contact Club Cultural Officer, Kathleen Carmody for further information on Scor details.

U12s St. Josephs team that beat St. Paul's of Killarney last Friday evening in Killarney

Quarter Final: Listowel Emmets 1.14 v Ballyduff 0.13 Con Brosnan Park Moyvane was the venue for this gripping game of football between Ballyduff and Listowel Emmetts in the Quarter Final of this years North Kerry Championship. Credit to both sides playing in excellent conditions it was all action from start to finish Ballyduff with a point from a free by John Paul Leahy opened the scoring. Jack Goulding on a solo run added another soon after. Listowel were finding it difficult to get their hands on the ball in the middle third of the field and Ballyduff added further points when Jack Goulding on a turn over pointed in the ninth min. A min. later John Paul Leahy at the end of a kick from outfield blasted at the Keith Hughes in the Listowel goal who deflected over the bar. Such was Ballyduffs dominance it took until the 15th min for Listowel to register their first point from midfielder Cormac Mulvihill an excellent point from play 45 yards out. This score seemed to inspire Listowel who added another well taken point from Sam Tarrant. Ballyduff replied with a Mikey Boyle free but at this stage Listowel were getting to grips with their opponents and added two more fine points from play coming from Conor Cox and Sam Tarrant. Ballyduff did settle before the break to add two further points a free by John Paul Leahy and a brilliant kick fom Mikey Boyle to leave the half time score Ballyduff 0.08 Listowel Emmetts 0.04. The second half began at a frantic pace with Listowel adding two opening points by Noel Kennelly on as a sub at half time and a Conor Cox free. Mikey Boyle replied with a free. Listowel now began to run at their opponents and it was Sam Tarrant again who got another Listowel point in the ninth min followed by a well taken free from the 45 by Conor Cox.Just as it looked as if Listowel were gaining control of the game Ballyduff sprung into life again a ball into the Listowel square caused confusion and it rebounded out to Mikey Boyle who blasted at goal and it was parried over the bar by the Listowel keeper. A minute later Jack Goulding again tested Keith Hughes in the Listowel goal blasting straight at him and he again managed to deflect over the bar.Amazingly another ball in to the Listowel square again caused panic and in the melee a Ballyduff boot failed to make proper contact with the ball and it went straight across the goalmouth and to safety.Now Ballyduff were in complete control and sub Padraig Boyle and two points from play in as many minutes. Had Ballyduff taken one of those goal chances they were presented with in that period they probably would have ended the Listowel challenge, but they didn't and Listowel showing all their great championship pedigree made Ballyduff pay. Conor Cox with a free and Niall Collins from play added points and then came the game changer when a swift attack Sam Tarrant sent a piledriver to the Ballyduff net and that rocked Ballyduff who try as they did could not find an answer to the Listowel onslaught and it was Listowel who then dominated to the end with further points by Brian Sweeney, Brian Murphy and David Keane to put Listowel into this years semi final where they face Ballydonoghue. Great credit to both teams for a very entertaining game of football on a very good surface. Had Ballyduff taken the chances that came their way midway through the second half they may well have seen the game out but Listowel showed all their great battling credentials to take the spoils on a scoreline Listowel 1.14 -v- Ballyduff 0.13.

KIERAN CORRIDAN MEMORIAL INTERMEDIATE CUP FINAL Sponsored by South Of Ireland Waste Management Ballydonoghue 1.14 -v- Castleisland Desmonds 1.07 Ballydonoghue cruised to victory in the South of Ireland Waste Management sponsored Kieran Corridan Memorial North Kerry Intermediate Football Final played in sun drenched Duagh on Sunday last November 27th. Indeed there could be no complaints in regard pitch or weather conditions as both were ideal. The Duagh venue was immaculate with a perfect sod for the players benefit. But alas the game itself never produced the tight encounter we were expecting especially considering that these two sides produced a thriller in the County Urban League Final earlier in the season with Desmonds on that occasion capturing the title by a goal margin. Indeed pre match discussions on this occasion were all geared towards that previous decider with the pressure on the Ballydonoghue boys to reverse that encounter. That they did, and with considerable ease which was most baffling as Desmonds never got out of first gear for the entire hour. Ok there were patches in which Desmonds tried to match their opponents, but these were really rare as Balydonoghue dictated the pace of the game for over three quarters of the contest. Such was their dominance that they burst into a four point lead without reply after just seven minutes on the clock. Padraig Lyons opened after converting a 20meter free on the 2nd minute followed by white flags from Brian Mason, Lyons again, followed with a marvelous sideline effort from Gearoid Kissane to set them on their way. The strength and excellent work rate of both Cian and Captain Martin O’Mahony at Centre field was top class as they fed their forwards with crucial passes setting up very valuable scores which made all the difference as four out of the six forwards scoring in the opening half. But there was also a worrying factor in that while Ballydonoghue dominated in this early period they failed to score from the 16th minute to the end of the first half. Ok they had a comfortable cushion by the end of the first quarter as they led by seven points with additions from Stephen Foley, Padraig Lyons and Kevin Cremin. Desmonds did not open their account until the 21st minute when Steven Bartlett converted a 20 meter free after Tadgh Walsh was fouled on his way through. Bartlett added two more conversions both on the 23rd and 30th to make the half time score Ballydonoghue 0-07 Desmonds 0-03. The second half began in similar fashion to the first as Ballydonoghue had another braise of points within the opening six minutes. Captain Martin Mahony slotted over the opener after 30 seconds followed by a Padraig Lyons 20 meter free after a foul on Brian Mason and Mason himself adding a gem after a wonderful movement involving both himself and Dermot O’ Connor. It was now 10pts to 3pts and even at this early stage it looked as Desmonds were on the back foot. A burst of pace involving Gearoid McCarthy and Stephen Bartlett with the latter kicking a well deserved point gave a small bit of hope that Desmonds might come back and put in a grand stand finish. Dermot O Connor fired over another two points in succession as a result of foolish fouling by the Island defense. A Graham O’ Connor effort on the 10th minute looked like it had goal written all over it, as he broke through a tight Ballydonoghue rearguard with his bullet of a shot just rising too high, indeed this was a let off at a crucial stage. But again the opposition broke down field and a further two points one from a free by Dermot O’Connor and Padraig Lyons slotting over from play looked as if the title was going northwards. But Desmonds did not throw in the towel and fought back with two well taken points from Steve Bartlett this made it 14pts to 7pts with only minutes remaining. However within three minutes of injury time Ballydonoghue and Desmonds had added goals, both coming from introduced substitutes Ballydonoghues goal coming from Eric O’Connor and Desmonds goal from towering forward Chris Brosnan. Captain Martin O’ Mahony received the Kieran Corridan Cup from kind sponsor Fergal O’ Connor of South of Ireland Waste Management and North Kerry Board Chairman Billy Enright.

O Glorious St. Therese, whom Almighty God has raised up to aid and inspire the human family, I implore your Miraculous Intercession. You are so powerful in obtaining every need of body and spirit from the Heart of God. Holy Mother Church proclaims you 'Prodigy of Miracles... the Greatest Saint of Modern Times.' Now I fervently beseech you to answer my petition (mention here) and to carry out your promises of spending Heaven doing good on earth...of letting fall from Heaven a Shower of Roses. Little Flower, give me your childlike faith, to see the Face of God in the people and experiences of my life, and to love God with full confidence. St. Therese, my Carmelite Sister, I will fulfill your plea 'to be made known everywhere' and I will continue to lead others to Jesus through you. Amen. M.K.
