Kerry County Council have issued a notice to close the N72 National Secondary Road between Barraduff and Rathmore, from 8:00am on next Monday 17th May 2021 to 5:00pm Monday 31st May 2021 (two weeks).
The diversion to Killarney from Millstreet will be through Macroom, so what is normally 33kms from Millstreet to Killarney, now becomes ~63km each way. Traffic goin from Mallow to Killarney on the N72 will also be diverted through Millstreet, so expect increased traffic in town for the two weeks.
[Kerry County Council notice to close the road]
Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my weekly report.
It may be raining and windy outside, but the sun is shining in our hearts. To get the word Go after four months of semi-lockdown is surely a reason for us to be glad. We went to Mass in our beloved Church first thing on Monday morning, what better way to kick –start our new found freedom. There was a fine attendance and the joy of meeting our friends again having the friendly word and long-overdue greeting. There was no shaking of hands, and no hugs, everybody wore a mask, but there was nothing to dampen our spirits. I read somewhere that May 17th is all hugs day, barely a week away. My goodness there will be a stampede. I wonder when will be allowed the lovely custom of the friendly handshake. It will all take time because having refrained from it for so long and the fear of God hammered into us about the danger of it take a while for us to un train ourselves again and feel both safe and entitled to resume our friendly gestures. Little children will find it very different to touch rather than use the elbow to relate their loving greetings. I imagine they will make a big thing of it and share many a belly laugh in the process.
