It’s hoped works will take place at dangerous Rathmore bend this year

It’s hoped improvement works will take place at a dangerous Rathmore bend this year.

Councillor John Sheahan brought a motion to the monthly meeting of Killarney Municipal District, calling for Kerry County Council to purchase lands at Stagmount, Rathmore.

He says a number of road traffic incidents have occurred at the location in recent times, including a vehicle overturning there in recent days.

In response, Kerry County Council says the process for the acquisition of the lands necessary for this scheme has commenced.

It adds, subject to funding, the scheme to advance to construction may begin later this year.
