Kerry Technology Park should be back in local ownership this year.
Kerry County Council and the Institute of Technology, Tralee have put in a bid to buy the park from Shannon New Co.
The park was locally managed under Shannon Development but after the latter’s abolition two years ago passed into the ownership and management of Shannon New Co.
Oliver Murphy is president of IT Tralee.
Mr Murphy says 2015 was a good year for the technology park.
He believes IDA investment coupled with the return of local control of the park should result in further improvements.
