The Cathaoirleach of Kerry County Council says that, if needs be, he'll take a sign to Abbeyfeale to inform people of a greenway in the county.
Fianna Fáil councillor Jimmy Moloney was speaking after councillors in North Kerry heard the local greenway had been officially named. The greenway, which will run from Listowel town to the Limerick border, has been named the North Kerry Greenway.
Councillors in the Listowel Municipal District were told the title of the greenway has been agreed. The chosen title, the North Kerry Greenway, had been in use informally.
A number of councillors had previously criticised the council's approach to marketing the greenway, with Cathaoirleach of Kerry County Council Jimmy Moloney saying now is the time to promote the new route. The Fianna Fáil councillor said, if needs be, he'd take a sign to Abbeyfeale himself to inform people of the upcoming amenity.
The greenway, which will connect with the Great Southern Trail running from Rathkeale, is due for completion in March 2022. The local authority says it's in the process of appointing an external marketing agency to promote the greenway and local councillors will be informed of the agency's strategy next month.
