The sun shone in Ballybunion on Friday afternoon, at odds with the sadness and shock hanging over the popular tourist town. People there and in wider north Kerry were trying to come to terms with the tragedy that struck just the evening previously.
any holidaymakers come here to enjoy the beautiful beaches, the entertainment and the buzz that pulses through the town. On Friday, that buzz was clouded by the loss of two lives on the Men’s Beach 24 hours before that. Two siblings died on the beach on Thursday evening. A family member who travelled with them was left in shock.
