These are some of the places where people told me that the Healy-Rae brothers had been seen recently:
My uncle’s retirement party in Tralee.
Walking down the main street in Kenmare on Saturday night.
In Dingle at a parade at 7am.
At three funerals in one day in three different parts of the county.
My grandmother’s funeral in Killarney.
A festival in Sneem.
Buying a round of drinks for the entire pub in a bar in Milltown.
At a charity fundraiser in Castlemaine.
“They’re everywhere,” Paudie Broderick says. “If you were at one function in the county and the Healy-Raes were there, and you got into a plane and flew to another event in Kerry, the Healy-Raes would have got there before you.”
