The Kerry farmer, who appeared in court over the death of another local farmer, is set to be sentenced later today.

Michael Ferris, a dairy farmer from Rattoo, Ballyduff, Co. Kerry, is to appear in court for sentencing over the manslaughter of a neighbour.

Mr. Ferris pleaded not guilty to a charge of murder at a court sitting in Tralee Courthouse, October 10th, as reported by us here, instead pleading guilty to manslaughter. The 63-year-old will be sentenced today over the issue, which occurred on April 4th 2017 and resulted in the death of local tillage farmer, John Anthony O’Mahony.

The accused, Mr. Ferris, is said to have rammed the prongs of his teleporter through Mr. O’Mahony’s car many times, causing fatal injuries to the farmer. The incident occurred after an array of arguments between the two farmers through the years, over 73-year-old Mr. O’Mahony’s repeated using crow bangers on his land.

Mr. Ferris has been remanded in custody since October of this year and will be sentenced later today at the Criminal Courts of Justice, Dublin.
