Objections raised to stop expansion of parking facilities at Muckross House

It’s believed that objections have been raised to stop the expansion of parking facilities at Muckross House in Killarney.

Planning permission was granted by Kerry County Council to upgrade existing bus parking and the overflow car park.

A spokesperson for the Department of Culture, Heritage and An Ghaeltacht says the works are part of the plan to develop and improve the national park.


The department told Radio Kerry News they understand an appeal has been lodged to An Bórd Pleanála.

It’s believed two environmentalists have appealed the decision.
