Great Southern Trail route Listowel to BunagharaPublicly owned  former railway lines should be used to bring gas to Kerry Group’s plant in Listowel

That’s according to the Great Southern Trails group which developed a walkway from Limerick to the Kerry boarder and is campaigning to have it extended to Tralee and Fenit.

Gas Networks Ireland is on the point of signing a contract with Kerry Group to extend the line that would allow the company to establish a combined heat and power plant at its facility in Listowel.

Liam O’Mahony of Great Southern Trails says this should be done along the existing former railway line.
