Funding may be sought to improve Banna Beach junction

Funding may be sought for a project to improve the main junction to one of Kerry’s most popular beaches.

Following a motion from Cllr Thomas McEllistrim, Kerry County Council said the lands required for the upgrade to the R551 Banna Beach Cross were acquired a number of years ago.

The works would need funding under the Specific Improvement Grant Scheme.

The local authority added the project will be considered for submission later this year.
