Tommy O’Flaherty walked into a cheering crowd at McCarthys bar Finuge on Saturday night, as family and friends gathered to surprise him. Tommy is a native of Charles Street Listowel, where he was raised with four brothers and five sisters. A keen football player and musician, Tommy went on to play the drums with the famous Showband Roly Daniels and The Green Country before moving to London in 1974. Tommy then became a publican and had his pubs in Harrow, where he still entertained the crowds with his signing and had his three children, Lisa, Joanne, and Thomas. Tommy had come to Listowel to stay with his daughter Lisa for the races, but little did he know there had been plans for a big surprise. Family and friends who had travelled from America, London, and all over Ireland had been hiding around Listowel for a day to two before the party. His daughter Lisa had been secretly planning this for months and decided to have the party before his actual birthday in October on the week of the races as it was the perfect time to get him back to Listowel. On Saturday, Tommy was out with two of his closest friends Maurice Sheehy and Chips, he thought they had to pop into McCarthys to collect something. He had no idea the pub was full of family and friends. The bar was decorated with balloons, banners, food, and cake, all waiting for him. When the door opened, the crowd cheered and clapped. Tommy stood still in the doorway, trying to take it all in. As he walked through the door, he glanced around the room, spotting the faces of people who travelled to see him, including his partner Margaret who Tommy was most shocked to see as he thought she was at a party in London. Tommy said, “It was the last thing I expected as I walked through that door. It was a fantastic night. Thank you to everyone who came. It was so special to have everyone together”. Pictured top left: Maureen Sheehy, Marge Reddyhoff, Tommy O’Flaherty, Mike Reddyhoff, Lisa O’Flaherty, Joanne O’Flaherty, Thomas O’Flaherty, Ruby Goggin and Megan Clark at a surprise 70th Birthday party for Tommy O’Flaherty Bottom: Tommy with some of his bothers and sisters L-R Edward Flaherty, Mary OConnell, Jack Flaherty, Noreen Brennan and Tommy O’Flaherty

CAROLINE’S DÓTERRA ESSENTIAL OILS CAROLINE’S POD OF POSITIVITY Welcome to my weekly column and my Pod of Positivity. It is here you will find little tips, tools and information that help us to maintain a life of health, wellness, love, and gratitude while using DóTerra’s essential oils in our daily routine. As a certified DóTerra essential oil specialist I have been delighted to help and support so many people and their families over the last three years on their essential oil journey throughout North Kerry, West Limerick and beyond. I know how these oils can support the Body, Mind and Mood and this week I bring your attention to using essential oils in your daily routine to give yourself the Self-Care you so deserve. Self-Care using Essential Oils Practicing Self Care is important to all of us as it helps us unwind, bring the body and mind back into balance and promote feelings of happiness and positivity. Incorporating essential oils into our daily routine can help a person’s mental, physical and emotional health in many different ways. DóTerras essential oils can be added to your bath in the evening or to the bottom of a shower tray. The oils can be added to your skincare routine such as face or body moisturisers and to your pillow for relaxation before sleeping or to your shirt / blouse collar during the day to keep feelings of anxieties at bay. Diffusing the oils in a cold water diffuser has become increasing popular, adding the oils to a foot spa or basin in the evening to soak the feet is very relaxing or inhaling while meditating or journaling can be very soothing and calming. My Top Favourites Lavender: One of the most popular essential oils with a floral and woody grounding scent. Lavender is used to help calm anxiety, overwhelm, and helps with relaxation. This is the best oil to use in the evening. Especially around bedtime because it helps your body relax, unwind, and promotes great sleep Ylang Ylang: Slightly sweet, floral, and an earthy uplifting scent, this essential oil can help boost your mood, reduce depression, and help with anxiety. It is a great oil to help filter out negative energy. Rosemary: With a refreshing herbal smell, rosemary essential oil helps with mental fatigue, exhaustion, and the feeling of burnout. It helps to clear your mind and refocus yourself. Bergamot: This essential oil smells very citrusy which can be very sweet but tart. Bergamot can help with reducing inflammation and pain, improve your self-esteem/confidence, and help to uplift your mood to become more positive. My Three – Way – Method in using dóTerra’s Essential Oils: Topically – applying them on to our skin particularly our pulse points and soles of the feet. Aromatically – by placing two to three drops into a cold-water diffuser and diffusing these oils in our homes, classrooms, offices, salons or places of work / business and thirdly using the oils, Internally – by adding them to our favourite food, waters, or drinks, or simply by taking one drop daily under the tongue.

KDYS Youth Clubs provide safe spaces in local communities for young people to meet new friends and engage in various activities that supports their own wellbeing and development, equipping them to become active citizens in their own lives and in their communities. KDYS encourages full youth participation, where young people have a voice in decisions about their clubs’ programme of activities including what they do on club nights and trips working alongside volunteers. Youth Clubs are fully reliant on volunteers to manage and maintain as young people are not the only beneficiaries of a youth club. Being a Youth Club volunteer is very rewarding for the volunteer as you have opportunities to make new connections in your community, learn to interact and connect with young people, grow in confidence due to taking on administration responsibility and gain a huge sense of pride for creating something that positively impacts on the lives of young people in the community. As part of the KDYS community, our volunteers also have access to quality training, which provides transferable skills in the areas of leadership, group work, safeguarding, facilitation, and mentoring. All KDYS volunteers are screened, and Garda vetted and complete a mandatory induction training programme. KDYS youth clubs are supported by our dedicated youth club support worker, Marie Danaher. KDYS are currently seeking volunteer leaders across the county to support the youth club delivery in their community. If you are interested in getting involved and making a difference in the lives of young people and would like to volunteer with an organisation committed to making a real difference in the lives of Young People in Kerry, please contact Marie Danaher @ 085 152 8437 or youthclubs@kdys.ie

Welcome to San Rita Wellness weekly column…We hope you are safe and well Compared to this time last year we now have more control and choice of what we want to do or where we want to go. This has a positive impact on our overall health and well being. But at the same time there are many things that we may need to continue keeping control over to achieve a healthy lifestyle. So let us take a look at a few of those: FOOD Now that routine has come back again with all of the schools reopened, establish your own meal time routine again. Plan your meals in advance and batch cook as this can leave you feeling more organised especially if you are working from home Try out some new recipes as variety is the spice of life.... Safefood.ie, and Bord Bia have some nice recipe and meal ideas Just be mindful of the extra foods and treats you may have in your home as you may be inclined to buy that bit extra to treat yourself . TREATS Don’t let the treats become a threat. There are other ways to make yourself feel better such as buying yourself a book or a magazine, treat yourself to a lovely body lotion or a nice bottle of your favourite perfume. Have a pamper night where you can have a relaxing bath, paint the nails or apply a rejuvenating face mask. ALCOHOL Limit your alcohol to the weekend’s. That way it can be something you can look forward to. There are also low calorie options available in the alcohol also, such as light beers, low alcohol wine and add your diet and slimline minerals as mixers for spirits. WEEKENDS Plan your weekends and stick to your plan. It’s important not to let your guard down too much then just because it’s the weekend. Remember after all there are 52 weekends in the year ACTIVITY The best way to overcome cabin fever is to get out in the fresh air, whether it is to your local park or beach. Being active will benefit you as it is good for the head and will give you a positive attitude so you will feel better. When you Feel better you Think better and then you Eat better. ATTITUDE What is your attitude at the moment ? Eat all around you and go out of control OR eat mindfully and stay in control. How we think determines how we feel, how we feel determines what we do next. So think positive, feel positive, be positive. So all of these things we can be “IN CONTROL” of so at the end of the day not only are we all responsible for ourselves but also to ourselves. For extra support and for weekly accountability check us out on Facebook San Rita Wellness or sanritawellness.ie for details of our “ In Person Meetings “ “ At Home Service “ or our “ One to One Service “ NB - Our weekly “ In Person Meetings “ take place in Listowel Community Centre every Wednesday and in The Ballybunion Health and Leisure Centre every Thursday .

In the 1950’s like many of her friends she emigrated to the UK to pursue a nursing career which she did for all of her working life. An attractive looking girl she caught the attention of Edward Litchfield, a scientist, and they were married in Dover. They settled there and reared a family of two children.

U15 Division 1 Shield Final Report Duagh was the venue for this Division 1 Shield Final and both teams played out an exciting game that was in the balance right to the end. Tadgh O’Connell opened the scoring with a point for Tarbert in the 3rd minute. St Senans replied with a pointed free from midfielder Ruairi O’Connell. A Tarbert point by Shane Stack put Tarbert back in front. That was quickly followed by a goal from midfielder Michael Coolahan. St.Senans had an excellent point by Tiernan Dennehy. Two minutes later Tarbert got their second goal of the half from captain and centre forward Lee Mulvihill. St Senans at the other end were unlucky after some great individual play from Tiernan Dennehy saw his shot for goal go wide of the left-hand post. Ruairi O’Connell added a point for St.Senans with a free. Tadgh O’Connell replied for Tarbert but it was St Senans who concluded the half with 2 further points from frees by Ruairi O’Connell.

Half-time score Tarbert 2 03 St.Senans 0. 06. The second half set the pulse racing from the very start when from the throw in Lee Mulvihill had the ball in the net for Tarbert. St.Senans attacked immediately and when excellent corner forward Ryan Hurley was fouled in the Square referee Ger D OCarroll blew for a penalty. Up stepped influential midfielder Ruairi O’Connell but unfortunately his shot went wide of the post Tadgh O’Connell had a free for Tarbert .Then on the 6th minute of the second half came St Senans second penalty when again Ryan Hurley was fouled. This time Evan O’Sullivan stepped up and made no mistake. Ruairi O’Connell added another point for St.Senans putting them right back in the game. Two quick points from Mikey Carmody and a Tadgh O’Connell free looked to have steadied the ship for Tarbert but St Senans had other idea’s. A purple patch for them saw them score 3 goals and a point to put them in total control. The first of these goals came from Tiernan Dennehy set up by Ryan Hurley. Tadgh Doran added a point followed by 2 other goals from Ryan Hurley. St Senans now led by 4 points and with 10 minutes remaining looked on course for victory. Lee Mulvihill reduced the lead to 3 with a point and then came the equalizing goal for Tarbert by Tadgh O’Connell. Both teams tried to wrestle the initiative and it was substitute Dylan Buckley who rifled a shot to the net for Tarbert to put them back in control. Lee Mulvihill added another point for Tarbert to put them in a 4 point lead. St.Senans attacked relentlessly as injury time approached. They had points by Dylan OCallaghan and Ruairi O’Connell but time ran out for them leaving Tarbert winner’s by 2 points on a scoreline of Tarbert 5.08 St.Senans 4. 09. Ger D OCarroll Asdee was referee and it was great to see him having linemen and umpires. Thanks to Ger D and also Duagh for the pitch. North Kerry Coiste na Nog Chairman Sean McCarthy Castleisland Desmonds presented the shield to Tarberts winning captain Lee Mulvihill Well done to both teams who gave a great hours entertainment. In truth any team could have won as both at times looked to be in strong positions to win and in was Tarbert that prevailed.

Of the 15 Kerry players who started out at the Munster Matchplay Finals in both Bishopstown and St Annes in Cork last Saturday only one player would make it through to Sunday’s semi-final stage in Listowel’s Ger Guerin in the Intermediate Mens grade. On Saturday in St Annes Ger defeated Tipperary’s Ken Hayes in Round 1 3&2, Limerick’s Mike O’Donnell 6&5 in the Last 16 while he was a 5&4 winner over another Tipperary player in Bobby O’Donnell in the quarter-finals to make it through to Sunday’s semi-finals which switched to the Bishopstown course. He was facing Darren O’Leary from St Annes who had defeated Deerpark’s Erin Moloney in the quarter-finals the previous day by 5&4. Ger was within one hole after the first 18 and two down with nine to play but O’Leary grew stronger in the closing stages to go on and record a 5&3 win before going on to win the title outright afterwards. Both Ger and Erin were two of only four Kerry players to make it through to the quarter-finals as both Deerpark’s Damien Fleming and Tralee’s Michael Conway were defeated at that stage in the senior grade.

SAM MAGUIRE On Saturday evening last at the capital of North Kerry the North Kerry Football Board headed by Chairperson; Mairead O Sullivan organised this special celebration to honour the homecoming of “Sam” which was greeted in the Square, Listowel by a huge and enthusiastic supporters from all parts of North Kerry and beyond and when Kerry All Ireland medal holder Jason Foley entered the stage holding the famous trophy aloft the place erupted and a sense of relief was had by all and that eight year wait was quickly put to bed. The weather was so kind as all concerned assembled at Frank Sheehy Park, Listowel; where the Scoil An Chlochair, Lios Thatuail, marching band led the way down Church Street and on to the square followed by the recently crowned North Kerry County Minor champions, under 13 selections from the clubs of North Kerry and of course our distinguished guests of the evening; “Sam” and Jason. Our M C for the occasion was the very popular Billy Keane who was his usual self and keeping everybody in party mood.Besides Jason there were other members of the Kerry backroom staff on stage. Also on stage we had the recently crowned Kerry Rose, Edaein O Connell and popular Traditional singer; Karen Trench who both entertained the crowd with songs; “The Land of the Gael ” and “The Kingdoms Green and Gold” respectively. The Minor North Kerry County champions and their management also made their way on stage led by their Captain Eddie Healy to a huge reception.

Damien had won an all Kerry Last 16 encounter with Tralee’s Alan Hobbart 2&1 before he was defeated at the last hole by eventual tournament runner-up Declan Freeman of Fermoy. Michael had claimed a narrow win over Douglas’ Eoin Keating in the Last 16 but he lost out to Keating’s club-mate Rob O’Donoghue in the quarter-finals by 4&2. The two ‘Tralee v Listowel’ encounters in the Mens Senior Round 1 ended in a 1-1 draw between the clubs in terms of match winners. Jamie Blake defeated Jake Shine 1up while it went to the third playoff hole between Ryan Allman and Tony Blake before Allman won at the 39th hole. Both Jamie and Ryan bowed out in the Last 16 however. All three of Kerry’s Junior players failed to make it past the first round. Listowel’s Dylan Sweeney conceded a walkover to Hillview’s Sean O’Connor, Michael Creagh was defeated by eventual runner-up Dean Lonergan from Cork while Listowel’s Tom Kelly was defeated by Bishopstown’s Steve Austin. This Sunday (September 25th) sees Deerpark host their Scratch Cup events as the club are reverting back to 54 holes for the three Mens grades for the first time since 2017. Anyone still looking to enter is asked to contact Sean Kelly from the club in regards to their timesheet for the day.

Prior to the stage event music and song was provided by Listowel Scor Group, Ballydonoghue/Lisselton Comhaltas, Ballybunion/Asdee/Ballylongford/Tarbert Comhaltas group who also kept the crowd entertained beforehand. Overall an occasion to savour and in fairness the people of North Kerry can be proud of their contribution to making this a night to remember.

It set me thinking. My father often spoke of a very elderly neighbour who was once asked how she would describe her life and how quickly it had passed. She apparently said “it was like standing under a bush from a shower of rain.” So fast!

MASSES AT ST. MICHAEL’S WELL LIXNAW Thursday 29th September at 12 noon and 7.30pm

The Word of God is very sobering and real in how it describes the brevity of life . I read in the book of James 4:13-14” .....You do not know what tomorrow brings. For your life is like the morning fog- it’s here for a little while,then it’s gone.” We look for all kinds of things to stuff time with, to speed it’s passing, to slow it down, or to kill it altogether. But since I became a bible believing Christian it becomes ever clearer to me that this life is the waiting room for the next life. Sadly, I also recognise that l have wasted so much of this preparation time on foolishness. The Word of God has a lot to say about how we use time. In Psalm 90:12 we ask the Lord to “Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom. “ Ephesians 5:14 urgently calls us to “Awake you who sleep. Arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light.” And again, in verse 15 we are told to “ ...be careful how you live, not as fools but as those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity for doing good in these evil days.” The Gospel of Matthew 6:33 directs me to “.... seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these other things (food, drink and clothing )will be given to you as well.” The Word of God tells everyone who chooses to follow Jesus how we can use our time on earth to build up treasures in Heaven. The Gospel of Matthew 6:19 puts it like this “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in Heaven where neither moths nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is there your heart will be also.” God is the most incredible, astonishingly loving Father Who wants everyone to know His love. “Seek Him while He may be found. Call upon Him while He is near.“ Isaiah 55:6 If you require any further information you can call LCF at 087 9529907 Yours sincerely, Bridie (Dillon)Hartney
