Council withdraws procedings against Mid-Kerry guest house owner.

Kerry County Council has withdrawn proceedings against a guesthouse owner in Mid-Kerry who had refused to pay commercial rates. Dermot O Carroll who owns Glencar House Hotel was due to appear at Killorglin district court this morning. He has withheld over 20,000 euro in rates.Mr O`Carroll was told it wasn’t necessary for him to attend the court as the Council wasn’t going ahead with the summons. He claims the system of charging rates is inequitable and he’s also unhappy with the service provided by the County Council. Mr Carroll has been critical in the past of the condition of the roads in his area.
