Kerry County Council seeking planning for Tralee – Fenit Greenway

On the Right Track at Kilmorna, North Kerry….Kerry County Council has begun the design development works on the greenway linking the Kerry-Limerick county bounds at Rathoran to Listowel town. During late 2017 and early 2018 the old railway corridor was cleared of vegetation and overgrowth to allow for an assessment of the route from an environmental, engineering and accessibility perspective.

Kerry County Council is seeking planning permission for the Tralee – Fenit Greenway development.

The proposed development consists of the construction of a greenway on the route of the disused Tralee to Fenit railway line from the townland of Ballynahoulort in Tralee to the village of Fenit, for the sole use of pedestrian and cyclist only.

The route is approximately 10.5km in length and will begin at Bracker O’Regan Road and finish in Fenit.

Ten townlands are included in the public planning notice published including Clogherbrien, Kilfenora and Ballygarran.
