Almost €180,000 in funding has been allocated to develop outdoor recreation facilities in Kerry.

The Department of Rural and Community Development has a strategic partnership in place with Coillte which provides €3 million each year for the period 2022-2026.

This is used to enhance recreational facilities on Coillte land and to support increased tourism and economic activity in rural areas.
