    Operation Transformation & Chirs Hartnett audio diary

    Last night on Operation Transformation,(in assoc with Safefood) you'll have seen that Paudie & Sarah were very happy with their weigh-ins, we have a sneak preview of Marc's weigh-in & I won't give away exactly how much weight he lost, but suffice to say that he didn't reach his target! Aoife Hearne & Karl Henry were not pleased!

    Rural Isolation

    When I met the 20 hopefuls for Operation Transformation last Autumn there were two sixty-something Kerrymen vying for a place – one is Paudie O’Mahoney, one of this year’s six leaders, but I also enjoyed my conversation with Richard Harnett and we promised to keep in touch with him on the programme. 

    Richard runs the Castleisland Mart and along with Mary Fleming, chairperson of the IFA Farm & Family committee, he is trying to get to grips with the issue of rural isolation. Richard and Mary want the men of Kerry to join them in conversation & in walks.  They join John from the Radio Kerry studio in Tralee to explain the initiative.
