The American visitors were deeply touched, they said. I had dug myself a hole and I kept on digging. The lady cried a little tear when I told her.

The road outside the pub is being dug up. The potholes were the size of bomb craters but the really good news is that Kerry Group, Kerry County Council and Bord Gáis are bringing a gas pipeline through Listowel and it's right outside our front door.

Jimmy Deenihan,who lost his seat, was the only politician to promise the pipeline and he too played his part. Kerry Group has been the mainstay of our little town for over 40 years and now there are plans for a major refurbishment in the milk-processing plant, with extra jobs on the way.
