Kerry County Council is continuing to seek new sources of funding for a skateboard park in Tralee. skateboard The issue has come to the fore following a complaint from a Tralee grandmother who says bored teenagers who are taking over the playground would be better served by a skateboard park. In 2005 under a pilot scheme the Government asked Kerry County Council to come up with an imaginative project to provide skateboard facilities. However the council says there was an issue around the ownership of the site identified for a proposed skateboard park which prevented it going ahead at the time. This issue has now been resolved but the funding stream is no longer in place.
