The re-opening of the Blasket Centre in West Kerry will support 250 jobs in the local economy.
That’s according to the Minister for State with responsibility for the Office of Public Works who officially re-opened the visitor centre in the past hour.
The centre was closed for major renovation works worth almost €3 million.
The transformation was funded by Fáilte Ireland, the Office of Public Works and the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage.
Minister Patrick O’Donovan says the re-opening will benefit the entire area of West Kerry.
