There’s a call for Kerry County Council to develop a skate park in Ballybunion.

Sinn Féin Cllr Robert Beasley made the proposal at the recent Listowel Municipal District meeting.

Listowel MD Manager, Joan McCarthy, who’s also Head of Tourism Development with the county council, said the idea isn’t contained in its recently published County Kerry Tourism Strategy and Action Plan.

She said although skate parks are very expensive to develop, it’s a worthy tourism project and she’ll look further at the proposal.

Cllr Beasley says a skate park in the seaside resort would be a welcome addition.
