A proposal by Kerry County Council and IT Tralee to purchase Kerry Technology Park is “progressing well”. That’s according to the Chief Executive of the local authority Moira Murrell. She told the council’s annual Budget meeting the plan is one of a number of the strategically important economic activities that are progressing this year. Kerry Technology is owned by Shannon NewCo, the company running Shannon Airport, following the winding up of Shannon Development. Meanwhile, the meeting also heard that sanction has been given for an Economic Development Officer and that role and supporting unit is to be further developed next year.
