That’s according to a response from a motion brought by Councillor Patrick Connor-Scarteen.

Councillor Patrick Connor-Scarteen brought a motion to the monthly meeting of Kerry County Council, asking what the council is doing to build upon the recent successes with regard to film making in the county.

In response, Kerry County Council said a number of avenues were being followed.

The Council has assisted with logistics and the locating of sources in the county for previous productions, while the South-West action plan for jobs also contains within it a commitment to seek further film-making opportunities.

Also, the Council has been in discussions with Kerry Education and Training Board to further maximise the opportunities.

The Tourism Unit of Kerry County Council is currently working with Fáilte Ireland on the ‘Skelligs Experience’-a marketing initiative which will further promote the Skellig area, the amenities and services.
