Minister to officially open refurbished castle

The Mayor of Kerry, Ned O’Sullivan says the Office of Public Works would not be in the embarrassing situation it has found itself, if it had followed planning procedures in relation to Listowel Castle. The performance area at the castle didn’t have planning and Listowel Town Council has put an enforcement notice on the OPW. The Minister responsible for the department, Tom Parlon, will be in Listowel this week to officially open the refurbished castle. Mayor O’Sullivan says it’s an embarrassing scenario.
