Just over €15,000 (€15,053) was granted for the 6.5km Ballykissane loop, which will run along public roads and the shoreline.

CEO of SKDP Noel Spillane says both loop walks will be valuable additions to the existing walking trails in South Kerry, and it’s hoped work will start on their development when Level 5 restrictions are lifted.
