Outline plans drawn up to construct a €4 million project in West Kerry

Outline plans have been drawn up to construct a €4 million project in West Kerry.

The project is one of ten which have been submitted to the Department of Rural and Community Development by Údarás na Gaeltachta.

Comharchumann Forbartha Chorca Dhuibhne Teoranta says it has applied for funding to construct a hall, an astro turf pitch and accommodation in Ballyferriter.

An outline plan has been compiled and, if funding is granted, it’s hoped to go to planning in the coming months.

Manager Padraig O’Sé says a feasibility report suggests that, unless more accommodation is secured, the Gaeltacht area could lose out financially.

He adds the project is in conjunction with a local sports club, Rugbaí Chorca Dhuibhne.

If the project receives funding, it’s hoped to go to planning in the coming months.
