« BackPlans to develop Áras Phádraig in Killarney

There are plans to develop Aras Phadraig in Killarney.

 

Seven years ago Aras Phadraig was donated to the people of Killarney by the Franciscan Order.

 

Kerry County Council have issued a request for quotations to carry out a feasibility study and business plan to determine the optimum use for the building on Lewis Road.

 

It has been used in the past for concerts, public meetings, election counts, a variety of sporting activities and blood donation clinics.

 

Kerry County Councillor Michael Gleeson says the expected cost of the feasibility study and business plan will be in excess of €300,000.

He says, despite the initial cost, the building will be self-sustaining in the future.
