Funding still awaited to repair storm-damaged pier in west Kerry

€10,000 is being sought from the Department of the Environment to repair a pier in west Kerry which was badly damaged by storms at the beginning of 2014. Cllr Michael O'Shea Fianna Fáil councillor, Michael O’Shea says that works are urgently required to upgrade the slipway and the entrance to the beach at Minard near Lispole. Large boulders and rocks caused damage when they were washed onto the beach and roadway by the beach during the storms. Council management says an application for €10,000 has been submitted to the department and a decision is awaited.
