Kerry Eye editor passes away

The death has taken place of Padraig Kennelly, founder and former editor of the Kerry's Eye newspaper.

Mr Kennelly, who was 82, died at his home in Tralee, Co Kerry.

Mr Kennelly and his wife Joan chronicled life in Kerry in more than 500,000 photographs which they took dating back to 1953.

The collection has now been digitised and a book taken from it was voted Kerry’s best book ever.
