Kerry's first greenway is due to be completed by the end of next February.

An update on the north Kerry greenway, which is yet to get an official name, was given at the recent meeting of Listowel Municipal District.

The route will run from Listowel to the Limerick border.

Senior engineer with Kerry County Council, Tom Sheehy told councillors almost three quarters of the north Kerry greenway site has been cleared and capping has been laid on almost 57% of the route.

He said work is ongoing with landowners along the route on accommodation works for them including fencing and animal crossings.

Mr Sheehy said he doesn't see any major obstacles that would impact the completion date of late February to early March.

The meeting heard a multi-disciplinary marketing consultancy team is being sought by Kerry County Council to develop branding for greenways in the county, beginning with the North Kerry Greenway.

That company will be appointed by June and will begin with designing a logo, branding, brochures and social media content; it will work in cooperation with the council's in-house marketing team.

The meeting heard work is ongoing with Fáilte Ireland and Limerick County Council on agreeing an official name for the route; Kerry County Council agreed that deciding the name as soon as possible is critical so marketing can begin.
