A Tralee Municipal District councillor believes a once-off cash payment of €3,000 would help attract younger people to settle in the town.
Cllr Jim Finucane said highly-skilled young people are struggling in Dublin due to the high cost of accommodation. He called for a definitive proposal to be ready for January adding that Tralee can't wait for other towns to do likewise.
Director of Services with Kerry County Council, Michael Scannell didn't believe a grant alone would be sufficient to attract people to relocate. A number of agencies are currently developing a County Enterprise Marketing Plan aiming to promote Kerry as a business, investment and study destination; the Discover Kerry web portal is also being enhanced to market the county.
