A Kerry councillor is calling for grants to be made available to make connecting to the gas network in Listowel more affordable.

Customers say it isn’t affordable with some quoted up to €4,000 to install the gas network in their homes.

In response, Gas Networks Ireland say the connections policy for the gas network is set by the Commission for Regulation of Utilities.

Sinn Féin councillor Pa Daly says grants should be made available for small residential customers in Listowel.
