31st July
PROPOSED WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT FOR KILFLYNN
The treatment plant is proposed to be located in a green field site approximately 550m southwest of Kilflynn village, in the townland of Fahavane. The area of the site is approximately 0.66ha (1.63 acre). The existing site boundaries are formed by hedgerows to the south, west and east, and by fields to the north. The site is bounded by a secondary road to the south. The Shannow River runs from east to west, approximately 120m to the north of the Site. The site and surrounding fields are currently used for grazing. The proposed project is to be implemented as a design, build and operate project whereby it is proposed to invite contractors to tender for the design, construction and operation of this plant. With this approach, variations in the design detail and arrangement of the facilities would be permitted, subject to satisfying the planning conditions and the performance specification as detailed in the Contract Documents.
It is envisaged that the treatment plant will be constructed in two phases. Phase 1 is designed to cater for a population equivalent of 528 and Phase 2 is proposed as a future extension to the plant, ultimately providing capacity to cater for a population equivalent of 1,056.
An extended Aeration Plant is the recommended method of treatment as it provides the most cost effective solution for producing an effluent quality to meet the required regulatory standards. Based on the waste assimilative capacity assessment completed at Preliminary report stage, the following discharge standards are recommended for the Kilflynn WWTP:
The treated effluent will be discharged from the WWTP site to the preferred location of discharge along the Shannow River. Storm water tanks and sludge storage tanks are also proposed for the treatment plant site.
PLANNING RESTRICTIONS
Aesthetic Restrictions:
maximum height of any structure on the site shall be 4.8m above the existing ground level.
A visual barrier shall be provided around the site by landscaping to a height of 3-10 m around the perimeter of the site. The landscaping will consist of native tree-lined hedgerow similar to that of the surrounding area. Landscaping details are shown on Drawing No. P-02.
Environmental Restrictions:
Noise: In the absence of Irish legislation, guidelines available from the World Health Organisation for Community Noise, 1999 are to be adapted. It is proposed that the following criteria be applied at the treatment plant during its operation, for minimal impact on the noise environment:
Night (22.00 to 08.00): 45 d B L Aeq
Day: (08.00 to 22.00); 55 d B L Aeq
These are limit values for the noise from the proposed works measured at the nearest receptor. All main sources of noise in the proposed treatment works will be required to incorporate noise control measures as appropriate to meet the above criteria.
Odour: Based on current international standards, it is proposed to apply a 98% non-exceedance of one-hour average concentration of 1.5 OU/m3 at the nearest sensitive receptor.
The Kerry County Council is inviting people to make submissions and observations on twelve sewerage schemes for the county which are due to go out on public consultation.

It also intends to construct wastewater plants and pumping stations in Ballyduff, Caherdaniel, Fenit, Lixnaw, and Tarbert. Plans for these proposed developments are available for members of the public to view until September 6th, at Kerry County Council's main offices, its water service department, and its local council offices throughout the county.

MINOR HURLERS
CROTTA 1 – 12,
BALLYHEIGUE 1 – 7
The Crotta Minor hurlers captured the Jimmy King memorial trophy on Thursday Evening 19th July, when they defeated a gallant Ballyheigue side, in the North Kerry Minor A Hurling Championship Final played in wet conditions at Austin Stack Park.
The Crotta boys were quick off the mark and led 0 – 5 to 0 – 0 after 15 minutes but Ballyheigue came storming back and actually led by a point at the interval. However a goal and a point shortly after the resumption gave Crotta a lead that they were not to relinquish. Ballyheigue threw everything at the Crotta lads at the end but they held on for a well deserved victory. Their first title at this grade for a number of years
Shane Nolan pointed from a free and from play before his brother Richard fired over one shortly after. Shane pointed from play after good work by Sean Weir before Jonathon Caffrey made in five points without reply. Ronan Kenny got Ballyheigue’s first score in the 16th minute when he pointed a free. He had a similar score soon after and in the 23rd minute the sides were level when Pa O’ Regan punished a Crotta mistake and goaled from close range. Kenny pointed Ballyheigue ahead for the only time in the game two minutes from the break and despite only having about 35 per cent of the play they led 1 – 3 to 0 – 5 at the short whistle.
Crotta’s John O’Connor scored a peach of goal within a minute of the restart and Richard Nolan added a point to increase their lead. Ronan Kenny got one back from a free after five minutes. Richard Nolan and Chris O’Mahony swapped points but Crotta hit three without reply to lead 1 – 10 to 1 – 5 at the end of the third quarter. Kenny fired over from a penalty and Jonathon Caffrey was on target at the other end. Kevin Reidy pointed in the 23rd minute but Keith Hannifin had the final say shortly with a fine point. Ballyheigue tried in vain to get further scores but the Crotta defence held out for a sweet victory on 1-12 to 1-07 at the final whistle.
CROTTA: Aaron Sheehan; Luke Sheehan, Darren Twomey, Paul Linehan; Alan Leen, Paul Costello (Capt), Seán Weir; Richard Nolan (0 – 3), Jonathan Caffrey (0 – 2); David Moloney, Keith Hannifin (0 – 1), Pádraig O’Leary; Shane Nolan (0 -4), Sean Hurley, John O’Connor (1 – 2).

FIXTURE
Crotta Senior hurlers are action in the North Kerry Senior Championship this Saturday 21st July against Abbeydorney at 5.00 p.m. in Dromakee, Kilflynn.

UNDER 8 HURLERS
Last Wednesday evening we welcomed Ardfert to Dromakee to play us in an under 8 and under 10 match. A very large crowd attended and the under 8 game started with a 7.15pm throw in. It was agreed before hand that the first half of this match would be played applying ground hurling rules only. The opening half was a tough battle but finished scoreless. Early in the second half with normal hurling being played Crotta made the breakthrough when Barry Mahony scored a goal with a long range strike. The ability to be able to pick up the ball seemed to suit the Crotta lads and the game opened up. Mahony soon scored his and Crotta's second goal following good work by Aaron Murnane. A third goal again scored by Barry Mahony from a free, after Adam O'Sullivan was fouled when bearing down on goal. In fairness to Ardfert they rallied and found the net themselves. After a number of near misses at both ends Darragh O'Donoghue completed the scoring when firing over a fine point from an acute angle. Final score Crotta 3-01 Ardfert 1-00.
Sean Holden made his debut keeping up the Leen tradition of wearing the green and red and Dylan Murphy also wore the club colours for the first time. In our previous match against Kilmoyley Declan O'Donoghue and Darragh Clark made their debuts from the club. T.J Stack of Ardfert refereed the game extremely well. The following panel of players took part in the match against Ardfert: Adam O'Sullivan, Dominic Nolan, Jack McKenna, John Quilter, Brian O'Connell, Aaron Murnane, Barry Mahony, Darragh Behan, Darragh O'Donoghue, Sean Holden, Dylan Murphy, Declan O'Donoghue, Darragh Clark, and Aodhan McKenna.

UNDER 10 HURLERS
The Under 10's also lined out against Ardfert on Wednesday evening. This was an excellent hurling match and finished with the sides level. Jordan Conway who excelled throughout with his best game for Crotta levelled with full time looming. Crotta opened brightly with their defence on top and their forwards creating numerous chances. Two of these chances were taken by Conway using neat stick work. From midway through the first half Ardfert took the initiative and put 2-01 on the board themselves to take the lead. In a game that swings from end to end it was left to the man of the match Jordan Conway to tie the scores at the death. The coaches of both Under 10 teams were happy with the skills level of all players. Barry Mahony made some fine saves and his defence of Brandon Conway, Darragh Ryan, Thomas Quinlan, David Behan and Adrian Mahony all proved more that a match for their respective opponents. Midfield was in and out of the game and though all forwards contributed to the result Jordan Conway took the plaudits for his performance. Brendan Mahony proved to be a capable referee. The following panel took part in the match against Ardfert: Barry Mahony, Brandon Conway, Darragh Ryan, Thomas Quinlan, Adrian Mahony, Darragh Kennelly, David Behan, Raymond Nolan, Sean O'Donoghue, Jordan Conway, Mark Egan, Aoife Behan, Dylan McElligott, Nathan Fahy.
The Club would like to thank T.J Stack for refereeing the Under 8 match and to the Under 8 coach of Ardfert Tommy O'Connor for bringing his team to Dromakee. A special word of thanks to Tadg O'Sullivan who coaches Ardfert under 10 for his help in organising both games. It was good to see some of the real die hard Crotta supporters now coming to these games. Thanks to the Crotta ladies who provided refreshments and sandwiches for all.

CROTTA U-10 HURLERS V CAUSEWAY
Our Under 10 travelled to Causeway last Saturday week to play Causeway who are the best team at this level. Although Causeway proved to be a step up in standard our lads got a good work out and will only benefit from playing at this level. We would like to express our thanks to Causeway coach Joseph Lyons who looked after us so well providing refreshments for the young lads. The hurling his team played is a credit to him. Thanks to Jerry Canty, Causeway who refereed the match.
If there is any former player, current player or a parent who would like to help Jerome, Paul and Francis on a Wednesday night they would be more than welcome. To improve the skill of each player, more help is needed. It is for one hour and we know everyone is busy but if the current coaches took this attitude and they are just as busy, there would be no under age hurling. Let’s keep the momentum going and have an outlet for all our children.
Pictures of last Wednesday games appear on the website www.crottagaa.com

KERRY HURLERS
The Kerry Senior hurlers got their Christy Ring Cup Campaign back on track, at Austin Stack Park, Tralee on Saturday afternoon, with a comfortable ten point victory (2-21 to 2-11) over a bitterly disappointing Down . Shane Brick’s performance was one of the main components of the victory, with a personal tally of 15 points. Kerry’s explosive opening to the game that saw them notch 2-4 before Down could issue a response laid the foundations for the impressive success. Mike Conway and John Egan both managed to find the net during a very productive opening ten minutes for the Kingdom and with Brick then finding his range, there was no way back for the visitors. Kerry now face Westmeath to decide who will progress to the last four of the competition while Down will face Meath who are almost certainly through to that stage following this result. Crotta player Matt Lynch was a Sub.
