A farm transfer to the next generation is commonly achieved by a lifetime gift.

Without availing of relief, such transfers would be commercially impracticable given the substantial tax cost. There are, however, several tax reliefs which, when availed of, can minimise or eliminate these liabilities, with the most common being retirement relief (regarding the transferor’s capital gains tax) and agricultural relief (regarding the transferee’s capital acquisitions tax).

There are many conditions that must be met, and although it is beyond the scope of this article to discuss them all, I will consider those that are most affected where solar panels are installed on farmland.

For retirement relief, the transferor must be at least 55 years old, and the land must be owned and farmed by him for a continuous period of 10 years immediately prior to the disposal (excepting specified leasing arrangements entered into by the landowner when he/she ceases farming).

Similarly, agricultural relief requires that the lands are farmed commercially, for at least six years following the transfer. Where there are solar panels and solar infrastructure occupying the lands then that will not constitute ‘farming’ for the purposes of these reliefs.

However, neither retirement relief nor agricultural relief will be affected by the fact alone that solar panels/solar appliances are installed, provided that the area of the land which they occupy do not exceed half the total area of the gifted farm.

The precise application of these rules must be examined closely in each case, to assess if the reliefs can be availed of, but no doubt this will be helpful for many farmers who plan to transfer their farms and whose lands are currently occupied by solar panels or who have entered into option agreements for such development.

The rate of stamp duty is currently 7.5% on the market value of the agricultural lands and is generally a liability for the transferee.

Reliefs known as consanguinity relief and young trained farmer relief, can reduce that rate to 1% and 0% respectively, provided that their many conditions are met. Whereas consanguinity relief is only available for transfers between certain blood relations, young trained farmer relief only applies to transferees who hold a relevant agricultural education qualification (‘green cert’) and who is below 35 years old at the transfer date.

Both reliefs require that the lands are actively farmed on a commercial basis for holding periods of six years and five years respectively. The carve-out provisions do not apply to these stamp duty reliefs, and the condition that the lands are actively farmed are not met where the lands are occupied by solar panels, even if the area of land which they occupy is less than half the total area of the gifted farm.

There are also income tax reliefs available in respect of certain leases of agricultural land. However, similarly, that relief will not be available on lands occupied by solar panels and solar panel infrastructure.

All aspects require careful consideration but unless, and until there is a legislative change extending the carve-out provisions to the stamp duty then farmers when negotiating leases/ lease options with solar energy companies must give particular consideration to this tax head. In my experience, solar developers are open to working with the farmer and their successors to minimise the tax impact and explore all options to make the agreement attractive to all.

Welcome to my weekly column. My name is Caroline and as a certified DóTERRA essential oil specialist I have been delighted to help, guide and support so many people along with their friends and families on their essential oil journey throughout North Kerry and West Limerick. I know how these oils can support the Body, the Mind and the Mood and each week I’ll be sharing lots of tips and information on Self-Care, Wellness, Love and Gratitude when using DóTERRA’S essential oils as part of your every day routine.

St Patricks Day Beef Stew

This week we look at Thyme not only because of the wonderful properties it has but because it’s delicious when used in cooking. I particularly like to use this essential oil when cooking an Irish Beef Stew and this will definitely be on our menu for St Patricks Day as we look forward to celebrating our patron saint this weekend and with those we love.

For centuries, Thyme has been used across nations and cultures for cooking, used as incense in holy temples, in ancient embalming practices and also used to ward off nightmares. The main benefits of dóTerra’s Thyme are its stimulating aroma, and its spicy food flavouring. It also provides the skin with cleansing and purifying effects and adding a drop to your daily water, tea or food will provide a general wellness feeling throughout the body. This bottle which contains around 300 drops of Thyme has replaced my jar of dried thyme. I really enjoy using it in both diffusing and cooking. You can order your bottle by contacting me on the number below.

As the oils work and support us on a physical level they also support us on an emotional level. Thyme empties the soul of negativity leaving the heart space wide open. In this state of openness, individuals begin to feel tolerance and patience for others. As the heart opens more and more, it can receive love and offer forgiveness. Thyme transforms hate and anger into love and forgiveness.

You can check out my Facebook page Caroline’s Pod of Positivity where I have information and videos on DóTERRA’S Essential Oils. To book a consultation or appointment you can reach me on the number and together we will start you on your journey of health and wellness using the oils with my full support and guidance.

My Three Way Method Using DóTerras Oils: Topically: Apply the oils onto your skin particularly on the pulse points and soles of the feet. Aromatically: Place two to three drops into a cold-water diffuser and diffuse the oils in your home, classroom, office space, salons or other places of work and business. Internally: Add the oils to your favourite food, waters and drinks, or simply by taking one drop daily under the tongue to support your body and mind.

DóTERRA knows that essential oils must be pure and potent in order to best fulfill the needs of those that use them. Too often, essential oils available for purchase contain contaminants and filler substances that weaken the essential oil’s effectiveness. With the sole purpose to provide pure and potent essential oils, doTERRA ensures that their oils are free of harmful contaminants and fillers through the CPTG Certified Pure Tested Grade™ protocol. We are so fortunate that DōTerra now have a manufacturing plant in Blarney Business Park in County Cork and will become a household name in Ireland by the year end.

Hope you all have a lovely St Patricks Weekend and happy cooking with your DóTerra Thyme essential oil!

Welcome to San Rita Wellness weekly column…We hope you are safe and well

This week we are going to focus on how important it is for you and your wellbeing to keep yourself accountable to your commitment to feel and look better . There are many areas where accountability plays a big part in your weight loss and wellness journey. So, let’s break them down and ask yourself are you actually ticking all the boxes.

It’s you not me...

Very often you can blame others for “making” you eat or drink something you actually hadn’t planned on having which can very often be the start of the slippery slope that we are all familiar with. For example you may feel that because you are in the situation we are all in at the moment with restrictions still in place your feelings and emotions could be responsible for your actions to eat mindlessly and yet you could point the finger of blame at someone else. So maybe it’s time to recognise that you need to take the reigns of responsibility into your own hands, as after all it’s only you will carry the implications of your actions around with you let it be in your mind or your body.

There will always be occasions when we do want to have that little bit of relaxation to have the treat without the after taste of the guilt. These would be times like St Patricks Day, Mothers Day and Easter also coming up.

Blaming others for our actions is an easy way of letting ourselves “ off the hook “ for our own accountability. Your choices are your decisions. Always remember when you point the finger at someone the rest of your fingers are pointing back at YOU.


Accountability is all about keeping records.

It is a proven fact when you keep an account of what you eat and drink you are more aware and mindful of your calorie intake. By keeping a track of your calories you are less likely to “forget” the little things that can all add up in the end. Keeping track of your daily foods can be done in different ways, it’s all about finding the way that works for you . Some people may like to keep a track record on their phone while others may prefer to put pen to paper and write it down, Whichever works will work. No guessing ,No messing !!

Being accountable to somebody else with your weight other than yourself is very important also as we do tend to leave ourselves off the hook quite easily at times. By doing this you are making a commitment not alone to yourself but to somebody else also. “It will be a weight off your mind “

So that is another reason why San Rita Wellness works so well for our members as they check in weekly with us either in our “In Person Meetings“ or our “At Home Service“

Mini Goals

Setting yourself a mini goal will keep you mindful and in the loop when you do feel like you may be inclined to throw complete caution to the wind. Having that mini goal in mind will help you to get back on track again so as not to cause too much damage overall Keeping a weekly record of your mini goals can help your motivation and commitment to stick with it and know that it will be worth it. Remember the saying “Slow progress is better than No progress“

You may set yourself a goal by deciding to lose five to seven pounds at a time or maybe seeing a lower number on the scales. It could be an item of clothing that is a little bit too tight at the moment that you would like for it to fit better or maybe you would like to be able to reach for a size down in the clothes rail next time you buy yourself something whether it’s online or when the shops reopen again. Now, picture that in your mind and think how great that would feel.


We are all different and it takes different things to encourage us to be more motivated. For some it can be the number on the scales or the clothes fitting better. For more it could be looking forward to meeting up with family and friends over the Summer and wanting to look and feel our best.

By constantly reminding ourselves of whichever it is will help keep the motivation strong. So, remember there is a saying: To wake up with Motivation, Go to bed with Determination

From the number one bestselling author of Our Little Cruelties and Skin Deep.

Sally Diamond cannot understand why what she did was so strange. She was only doing what her father told her to do, to put him out with the rubbish when he died.

Now Sally is the centre of attention, not only from the hungry media and worried police, but also a sinister voice from a past she has no memory of.

As she begins to discover the horrors of her childhood, recluse Sally steps into the world for the first time, making new friends, finding independence, and learning that people don’t always mean what they say. But when messages start arriving from a stranger who knows far more about her past than she knows herself, Sally’s life will be thrown into chaos once again...

This special team showed their character by somehow coming within a score of making the final on a day where everything went wrong for them. After a promising start and some good attacking play, on a clear but gusty day in Crosshaven, the home team intercepted a Listowel pass and sprinted under the posts to make it 7-0 after only 5 minutes. Listowel restarted with a clever, quickly taken kick off by Cathal Byrne, which was recovered by Captain Liam Hanrahan. Listowel went through the phases, and spun the ball right where it found Michael Coolahan, who gathered, and danced around the opposition winger to score a super try under the posts, bringing it back to 7-7.

Crosshaven used the wind at their backs to kick for territory, and every ball was dealt with by Jake Rochford at full back, who in the face of the wind had no choice but to run every ball back, which he did brilliantly, with the support of wingers ,Paul Lacoste, and Ewan Somers. Crosshaven’s towering and athletic second rows looked to set up a driving maul, but Listowel’s lineout defence, led by Ruari O’Connell, made this impossible. However, Listowel were being constantly pinged for offside, making it difficult for them to regain the ball. Crosshaven resorted to running their penalties and the constant pressure and penalties resulted in another try for the Corkmen which was converted to make it 14-7. This was followed shortly after by a penalty in front of the posts, which the Crosshaven outhalf slotted, to make the half time score 17-7.

Listowel re-grouped at half time, and with the wind at their backs, started the second half brightly with Fionn Byrne’s quick service to his brother Cathal giving him the time to use the wind and kick for territory. Listowel’s chase was good, with Eamon O’Connor, Jason Moriarty, and Tadhg Mulvihill to the fore, and when Listowel secured possession just inside the Crosshaven half the ball went through the hands of Sam Enright, and Jack Buckley to find John Curtin wide on the left at full pace, who beat 2 tacklers to break through and score under the posts: 17-12.

Once again though Listowel were hit with a sucker punch when a promising chip kick was caught in the wind and went straight into an oncoming Crosshaven players hands. He sprinted 60 meters and was caught by some great scramble defence by Sam Enright, and Cathal Byrne, but moments later Crosshaven went wide and scored in the corner with 10 minutes left: 22-12.

After so much going wrong it would have been easy for heads to drop but that is not what this team are about, and with Josh Aherne, Fionn Byrne, and Liam Hanrahan leading the charge, along with backup from Fionn McNamara, Marcos Leahy, Harry Reidy, Carlos Lopez, and Gonzalo Merino, Listowel again managed to get the ball to the flying prop John Curtin on the wing who beat the first man, and stepped inside the full back for another stunning try: 22-19 with 3 minutes left

The tension was almost unbearable as Crosshaven attacked, but Listowel turned over and had time for one more attack. However, they couldn’t breach the Crosshaven defence, and when a scrum was awarded, the referred blew the final whistle, and with it brought down the curtain on an exceptional cup run, from a team who have come so far, and done it playing some brilliant rugby.

The death took place of Thérese Kelly (née Kirk) of Barna, Galway, Tarbert and Lisdoonvarna. Thérese who was aged 81 died on Saturday 4 March at the Galway Clinic.

She reposed at the Church ‘Cillin’ on Monday 6 March. Her Requiem Mass took place on Tuesday 7 March in the Church of Mary Immaculate Queen in Barna followed by interment in Furbo Cemetery beside her late husband Franko Kelly, Tarbert who died in 2008 and whose headstone carries the inscription ‘An Chéad Fear isteach’. A large number of Tarbert people attended the funeral on both days. Thérese was the daughter of the owner of the Hydro Hotel, L:isdoonvarna. She married Franco Kelly and moved to Tarbert in 1968. They carried on a very successful business at the newly built Coast Road Motor Inn with restaurant and chalet accommodation.

In 1979/80 they sold the business and moved to Killimer in Clare, purchasing a pub and restaurant at the Ferry location and adjacent to Moneypoint Generating Station. They subsequently sold this business and retired to Barna in Galway. Sympathy of the community is extended to her children, Kirk, Ellen, Ciara, Claire and Noel, to the extended Kirk and Kelly families, relatives, neighbours and friends.

John O’Connor in St Mary’s Church on Thursday 9 March. Fr John spoke of her caring and compassionate nature and her teaching skills as a teacher. Her daughter Fiona spoke of her love of family, her gardening skills and her hospitality. After her Requiem Mass interment took place in St Mary’s New Cemetery, Tarbert. It was at Bolton Street College of Technology that she met her husband to be Martin, a Tarbert ESB employee. They later married and moved to Tarmons, Tarbert where they built a new house and went on to rear a family of three sons and a daughter. Marie organised a Computer Course many years ago in Tarbert and was involved in local community organisations. Sympathy of the community to her sons, Gerard, David and John, to her daughter Fiona, brother Nicholas, grandchildren, relatives, neighbours and friends.

Beale minors knew it was going to be a tough task when we came up against table-toppers, St Senans, on Saturday in Páirc de Staic. Our opponents were first to hit their stride and had their shooting boots on. Our boys found it difficult to settle into the game and were on the back foot for most of the first half. We found ourselves trailing by seven points at the short whistle. We regrouped on the changeover and exerted pressure on the Senans defence, kicking over some class points to pull them back. However, goals win matches and, when St Senans raised the green flag three times in the second half, the writing was on the wall for us and we ended on the wrong side of the score line, 1-10 to 4-12.

While results in the County League have not been in our favour, the boys have put in some great performances and our young squad is developing with every game. We’ve had mixed fortunes - well beaten in some games, unfortunate to lose out by the bare minimum in another and shared the spoils in another. Our young players have shown great heart and never give up. We look forward to their final round game when we travel to play Firies on Saturday. Throw in at 3 o’clock.

Beale seniors welcome Sneem/Derrynane to Páirc de Staic on St Patrick’s Day for our opening round of the County League, Division 4. Throw in at 1 o’clock. Our second round game will be at the beginning of April when we host Cromane and then we travel to play St Senans at Easter.

Teams in our group for the Junior Championship are Knocknagoshel, Kilgarvan and Reenard. We travel to Renard for our first game. Details to be confirmed.

County Minor Football League Division 2A Result, Saturday 11th March.

Tarbert 2-05 Ardfert 0-09. Tarbert U17s continued their undefeated start to Div 2A of the County League with a hard-fought victory over Ardfert in Shannon Park on Saturday afternoon.

After the inclement weather over the past few days, underfoot conditions were challenging for both sides but Tarbert had the benefit of a strong wind blowing down the field in the 1st half.

Both sides were equally matched and consequently, the 1st half was a lowscoring affair for both sides, with the Tarbert points coming from the boot of Caolam Moriarty, and the score at halftime was Tarbert 0-03 Ardfert 0-04. Playing against the wind in the 2nd half and a point down Tarbert had it all to do. Ardfert started strongly and scored 2 points to go 3 up. Typical of this group Tarbert responded with great heart and scored a goal through Shaun Wren to draw level. Ardfert scored another 2 points to lead and again the Tarbert boys responded with another goal from Shaun Wren to put Tarbert a point ahead. Another Caolam Moriarty point put Tarbert 2 up but Ardfert responded again to leave the minimum between the teams. Another Caolam Moriarty point pushed Tarbert 2 points ahead and despite Ardfert’s best efforts the rearguard action by Tarbert kept them at bay, with 2 defensive frees won by Jack Walsh relieving the pressure in the final minutes.

All the players gave their all for the team to secure the victory with Aaron White unbeaten in goals, Conor Egan and Shane Stack to the fore in defence, David Mulvihill and Shaun Wren working tirelessly in midfield and Paudie Finucane and Caolam Moriarty instrumental in creating and finishing Tarbert’s scores.

This result leaves Tarbert on top of Div 2A and should ensure they qualify for the Div 2 semi-final ahead of their final group game away to Kilcummin next Saturday. Team: Aaron White, Mikey Carmody, Shane Stack, Thady Mulvihill, Conor Egan, Dylan Kennedy, David Mulvihill (c), Shaun Wren (2-00), Donal Finucane, Paudie Finucane, Adam Enright, Coalam Moriarty(0-05), Tadgh O’Connell, Jack Walsh. Injured - Lee Mulvihill, Cathal Halton, Pa Dillon

County League, this Sunday March 19th will see our Senior Footballers go into action with an away game against Kilgarvan in Round 1 of the Credit Union County Football League Division 5, 2023. Certainly, the Club priority will have to be to get out of this Division; having laboured for too long now in this position. It is always hard to get promotion in any of the Divisions but this Division seems very difficult to get out of as it has proved for some of the so-called stronger teams down through the years. Last year’s the team had been showing well early on in the League but as we moved on we seemed to have difficulty in fielding full strength sides; I suppose, firstly that our numbers are tight and secondly with the fact that we had so many injury problems, but no excuses we always fielded, sometimes under difficult circumstances and this is due to great work from our Trainer John Kennedy. The team have been putting in a hugh effort in training and along with a few games played in the McCarthys Insurance Brokers North Kerry League Division 2 so hopefully this will help us for the year ahead.

U15 girls Futsal

An early start in Milltown last Sunday for our u15 Futsal team. In the first game the girls drew nil all with Spa/Fenit/Barrow a bit unlucky hitting the post in the second half. In the second game, Duagh/Lyre went down to Miltown/Listry 2 goals to nil again hitting the post when the game was scoreless. Game three against Kenmare proved that bit too strong, with Kenmare winning again two nil. In the last game the girls put in a great performance to defeat Fossa 3 goals to 1 leaving them joint 3rd in the table meaning a replay v Spa/Fenit/Barrow where Lady Luck deserted them losing out 1 goal to nil. The girls finished with hard earned pewter medals, and we are proud of each one of them. Team: Lisa McMahon, Aisa Fitzgerald, Fiona O’Brien, Emily Rose Ashley, Catherine Buckley, Ella Danaher. Missing on the day Julianne o Connell who was playing for Kerry u14 in the UL.

SCOR Ciarrai Thuaidh: by Jack Hennessy.

The Community Centre, Asdee played host to the North Kerry Finals of Scor na nOg on Sunday evening last with a good sized attendance present who enjoyed the wonderful talent that was on show despite the lack of Clubs that failed to participate. However the 4 Clubs; Listowel Emmets, Beale; Ballydonoghue and the host Club Asdee that did make the effort provided entertaintment of a very high quality. North Kerry Cultural Officer P J Mulvihill was a very capable Fear a Ti for the occasion. It was a very successful evening for the Listowel Emmets Club with Sophie Stack winning the Solo Singing and their Instrumental Music Group of Trina Kennedy, lily Hillard, Shauna Carey, Greta Keane and Sophie Stack coming in second and to cap a successful evening for the club they won the overall Shield which was accepted by their Scor Officer Jacinta Kennedy. Certainly the Adjudicators had a tough task when it came to announcing the winning Instrumental Music Group; but after long deliberations Ballydonoghues; Jack Purcell, Georgie O Donnell, Grace Foley, Ella Dalton, Eliza O Donnell got the nod ahead of Beale, Asdee and Listowel. As already mentioned Olivia Stack was the Solo Singing winner with Grace Heffernan; Asdee coming second.

The winner from each catagory will now go forward to the County Finals which will be held in the Community Centre Currow on Saturday March 25th at 6pm. All Clubs are remainded that the Quiz County Finals are fixed for Currow School on Thursday March 23rd at 7pm.
