Over the past few weeks, the Kerry club GAA season has been reaching its crescendo at district level. The South Kerry championship was decided at the weekend between Dromid Pearses and Skelling Rangers. The semifinals of the North Kerry were contested on Sunday. Yet this autumn has seen a spate of unseemly incidents of club GAA merchandise being set on fire in the Kingdom.

Today Jerry O'Sullivan of Radio Kerry shared a brief video of a green and yellow flag - the same colours of Skellig Rangers - on fire on his Twitter.

He also said there were reports of 'good luck' signs for Skellig Rangers being vandalised.

Dromid Pearses won the South Kerry championship for the third time in their history last weekend, beating the Portmagee side 2-7 to 0-7 in Waterville in dreadful conditions.

This is not the only incident of GAA merchandise being set afire in Kerry in recent weeks.

This incident comes a few weeks after video surfaced of a Currow GAA jersey ablaze in the north Kerry village of Knocknagoshel.

The video was spread widely across social media and messaging apps and is believed to have been recorded at the end of October.

The issue was raised at a recent meeting of Kerry County Board delegates. A spokesperson for Currow told the Kerryman said the incident had been 'dealt with'. 

According to Radio Kerry, the Castleisland Desmonds club 'condemned' the incident.

Castleisland Desmonds said no player or member of its club was involved in the burning of the Currow jersey and that it condemned the incident, which occurred during a private event.
