Kerry County Council is expected to award a contract soon for a culvert to be installed in Tullig, and works are due to be carried out in July and August.

Work will then begin in September or October adjacent to Kilbanivane Graveyard; the council says it’s continuing to consult with the local community on these proposed works.

Castleisland Fine Gael Councillor Bobby O’Connell raised the issue at the recent meeting of Killarney Municipal District; he’s looking forward to the works being completed before any more flooding occurs:
