Soccer club objects to new housing development in Killarney

A soccer club in Killarney fears a new local authority housing estate will lead to increased vandalism of its property. Killarney Town Council wants to build 60 houses at Derreen beside the grounds of Killarney Celtic Football Club. The club, along with a number of other parties, is objecting to the proposed development. Killarney Celtic says the construction of new housing estates has resulted in increased damage to property and fears another development will exacerbate the problem. Cllr Niall O`Callaghan says a wall should be used to separate houses and club.
