Killarney taxi prices to rise

The prices charged by taxis in Killarney are on the rise. The Town Council has granted the local taxi association a fare increase. From April the minimum charge will be 5 euro for about 6 minutes, the previous charge was 5 euro for over 9 a half minutes. Any additional fifth of a kilometre will now cost 25 cent as opposed to 20 cent. The last taxi increase in Killarney was back in 1999. Brain McCarthy, Chairman of the Killarney Taxi Association, says they offer good value for money.
