Hi Joe sending in my photo for the Saturday morning slot. Kerry is our kingdom. We welcome you one and all to explore its beauty of our mountains and our lakes and its stunning landscape. Kind Regards Pat O Shea,

Hi Joe,

This is a photo I took on 10th January 2018 about 5.30pm with my mobile phone of the sunset over Brandon as seen from Ballyheuige Beach.

I was chairman of Kerry Down Syndrome at that time, and had been attending the wake of one of our much loved members Mikey Hussey of Akeragh, Ballyheuige who had a warm and outgoing personality.  The Hussey family home is behind the sand dunes at Akeragh. After returning to the car park, I thought this extraordinary colourful sunset was almost an acknowledgement from the man above of a meaningful life well lived be Mikey.

You and Dominick Walsh may use the photo generally, including for the Tourism programme in early May.

Hello Joe & Dominic,Here is a photo of my mom and my dog Ted taking an evening stroll at Derrymore Beach, Co Kerry.

Our favourite thing about living in Kerry is that we have fabulous beaches and we are lucky to have them. We are delighted to be able to get back to our lovely beaches after lockdown.

Dear Joe and Dominic

I attach 3 photos from around Kerry for your Kerry Collection- more clouds and other features.

McGillicuddy Reeks with Beenkeeragh as the highest peak, it's the one seen from Killorglin streets. (not Carrauntoohil),  THe Reeks a must see, difficult to avoid unless it's misty.

Ballyheigue beach- a jewel in North Kerry, looking good in recent sunshine.- sun, sky and surf.

Loch Leane from below O'Sullivan's Cascade (Tomies Wood) on a slightly dull day, but still enchanting. Taken before recent fires. Hoping it has escaped.

All the best with the project.

Hi Joe & Dominic,

The lifting of the 5km restrictions was music to my ears on 12th April, 2021.  I headed off west to Dingle and was not disappointed. Later that week I headed North to Ballybunion by the Sea.  Two of my favourite places in Kerry to visit and photograph. We are so lucky to live in the beautiful Kingdom of Kerry.
Photo No 1 - Dingle Lighthouse at Dun Síon
Photo No 2 - Sunset overlooking the Blaskets
Photo No 3 & 4 - Beautiful Ballybunion by the Sea.

Love the show.

Hello Joe and Domnick.
I hope you are both keeping well.
What a great spell of weather we have had and what a treat to now travel beyond 5km!!
We are so blessed here in Kerry - we are spoiled for choice for places to go and so many of them don't cost a penny!
My family and I have been out and about quite a bit lately so I am attaching a few photos I took along the way!
The first photo is of the wild garlic in Ballyseedy Woods! What a beautiful amenity we have on our doorstep.
The second photo was taken in Fenit. It was like a Summers day there! Just glorious.
The third photo was taken in Waterville - my mother's hometown and one of the jewels on the Ring of Kerry.
Thanking you
Breda McGaley.
