Plans are underway to provide an additional 75 car parking spaces in Dingle town centre.

Kerry County Council is seeking to enhance and extend St Mary’s car-park.

West Kerry Cllr Seamus Cosaí Fitzgerald says it’s hoped the measure will provide a solution to traffic congestion, in particular in the Green Street area.

The proposed works consist of the enhancement and surfacing of St Mary’s, extending the car-park to the west, providing an additional 75 spaces.

A part of the scheme is situated within an Architectural Conservation Area, and involves works to the boundary of the curtilage of St Mary’s Church, which is a protected structure.

West Kerry Cllr Seamus Cosaí Fitzgerald said it’s hoped work on the project will get underway in the spring:
