John Joe Culloty. 1 However Kerry County Council says the commencement notices may not relate to the permissions granted as they could relate to permissions granted in the 5 years prior to 2009. 149 applications were granted time extensions between 2012 and 2014. The council issued the information in response to a motion by Fianna Fáil Cllr John Joe Culloty.
