A Tralee councillor is calling for the development of a blueway from Tralee to Fenit and onto Kerry Head.

Kerry County Council says they’ll work with North East and West Kerry Development on a feasibility study to determine the best location for one.

Sinn Féin Cllr Toireasa Ferris, however, feels it’s not appropriate for the council to be applying for funding from NEWKD.

She also says a private individual has already carried out research into a blueway for the area, and she’s frustrated at the pace the process is moving at.

She believes a blueway could be developed for an investment of only a few thousand euro, especially as the lock gates in Blennerville are currently being repaired and will be opened this month.
