A Sinn Féin Councillor has accused a Kerry TD of urging the County Council to reject state funding.
Councillor Pa Daly claims Deputy Michael Healy-Rae said the €2.2 million worth of funding, which has been allocated for the planned changes to Tralee Town Centre, should not be accepted.
The proposed changes include, among others, a reduction in the number of car parking spaces on Denny Street, the relocation of the taxi rank from the Mall, and the introduction of a two-way traffic system on Denny Street.
They were both speaking during a public meeting on the matter earlier this week.
Councillor Daly says the investment will give a much needed shot in the arm to the town centre, and calls on Kerry County Council to reject Deputy Healy-Rae’s suggestion out of hand.
However, the Kilgarvan TD says the councillor’s remarks are inaccurate.
