When a house party blew in and out of Kerry two weekends ago, hangovers were not the only unpleasant aftermath. It has left quite the mark on the local community.  The group consisted of up to 30 friends, who travelled from various counties, including Dublin, to stay in rented accommodation. Most travelled by car but one of them came by public transport.

Mercifully they didn't go to the local pubs for food and a pint, public health officials were later told. Instead, they partied in their rented pad. According to Dr Gary Stack, a local GP, the weekend was in full swing when one of the party-goers received the dreaded message from contact tracers: you have been in contact with a confirmed case. That didn't seem to stop the party.
