Kerry County Council says it is looking into who sanctioned road works in Listowel on Ladies Day of the Harvest Racing Festival.
Cllr Aoife Thornton raised an emergency motion at the local authority’s monthly meeting saying Listowel traders were left furious when traffic cones were put up in the town on one of the busiest days of the year. Cllr Thornton said this would not have happened during the Rose of Tralee or the Ring of Kerry cycle in Killarney. Director of Services Charlie O’Sullivan said the traffic survey was not Kerry County Council and they are trying to get to the bottom of the matter. He said a report should be ready for the next meeting of the Listowel Municipal District.
