Efforts are underway to secure more car parking for Kenmare.
Kenmare Marketing Group has been in consultation with Kerry County Council in recent months and are working on a national funding application to buy a property in the town.
The group wants to purchase the former net factory on Railway Road.
Along with providing 100 much-needed car parking spaces, the group says the property could provide storage and a space for the men’s shed.
The group says there is also the potential to develop a river walk.
