I’m not into sport as such but I do know that Kerry got beaten by Dublin on Saturday. The old saying was that, ‘If we had Kerry bate (beaten) and the hay saved, then the rest of the year was our own’. I’m loathe to take sides, but I have to say if the Cup came to Kerry, it would have raise the spirits of the entire South.
But with the All Ireland Final over, we have plenty to celebrate at home, before the week is out. First Culture Night on Friday September20th.

A joy to behold, if ever there was one. It may all change in a short time but like all the good things in life, catch them while they’re flying.

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my report.
The new Irish Community Rapid Response(ICRR) Service was launched this week by Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr Simon Coveney with many other local politicians present as well as the management crew of the new service. We are indeed delighted to have this service centered on our doorstep. How fortunate we were to have an Aerodrome complete with hanger etc in the locality ready made to receive the helicopter and staff and all that goes with it.
Those of us who have lived in the area all our lives can recall when the McCarthy family who ran a popular and much needed pipe and tile business in Rathcoole built the Aerodrome. It was at a time when air travel was in its infancy and the development created quite a stir in the locality. Times changed and the sound of local planes faded from our skies and from our minds. Little did we think that the site would come to life again in 2019 and become the base for a life-saving service which can fly any casualty from the catchment area to our best hospitals in a matter of minutes.
With national media present at Rathcoole Airfield on Monday morning, 2nd Sept. 2019 – Coordinator supreme, John Kearney and his superb Team witnessed their dream become reality when Tánaiste Simon Coveney officially cut the tape to launch the start of the all-important Air Ambulance Service. Here we share the first four of many more images recalling the historic event. Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)
A ceremony took place in Rathcoole Aerodrome this morning where Minister for Foreign Affairs, Simon Coveney, officially launched the country’s first charity air ambulance service. Led by the Irish Community Rapid Response charity, it has already been tasked more than 50 times, since it went operational a month ago. The new service will significantly improve response times for medical emergencies. From Rathcoole, it has a response time for most of Munster of under 30 minutes.
The death has occurred of Nuala O’Riordan (née McCarthy), late of Dunmanway, Dromsicane, Millstreet. On 1st September 2019, passed away peacefully in the care of the staff at Cork University Hospital. Wife of the late Denis Jerome and mother of the late Jerome. Deeply regretted by her loving daughter Bláithín (Coolea), son in law Michéal, grandchildren Amy, Eric, Sammii, Dammii and Kimmii, nieces, nephew, relatives, neighbours and friends. May She Rest in Peace.
