Listowel councillors are to seek a meeting with Minister Brendan Griffin on funding for the North Kerry Greenway.
Yesterday, Listowel Municipal District councillors approved plans for the development of the 10.5km greenway from Listowel to the Limerick County Bounds.
Kerry County Council will now apply for funding to develop the facility.
Listowel Cathaoirleach Aoife Thornton suggested the council seek a meeting with Minister of State for Tourism and Sport Brendan Griffin to impress upon him the need for funding for the project.
She’s also calling for a public meeting to be held to bring businesses and locals together to find Listowel’s unique selling point, to make the North Kerry Greenway a success.
