Paidi rows in behind festival of fun

LEGENDARY former footballer Paidi O Se is energetically rowing in behind a week of music, food and craic in his native Kingdom, writes Edel O’Connell.

The Kerry legend joined in the build-up to the annual ‘Scleip an t-Samhraidh’ (Tearaway Week) in Ventry yesterday.

Along with his son Padraig, Mr O Se rowed a traditional currach laden with crubeens, spare ribs, lobsters and vegetables to Cuan Pier in Ventry to highlight the event, which will run from July 16-22.

The festival includes a 50km cycle, a tug of war and sheep dog trials, as well as a special performance by singer Dolores Keane.
