Team to be appointed to ensure delivery of two Kerry greenways

A dedicated team in Kerry County Council is to be appointed to progress two greenway projects to completion.
The status of the North Kerry Greenway was discussed at the monthly meeting of the Listowel Municipal District.
Councillor Mike Kennelly called for all resources to be put in place to get the multi-million-euro greenway from Listowel to the Limerick border over the line.
The Fine Gael councillor pointed to bureaucracy with Government departments with such projects.
Listowel MD Manager, Joan McCarthy told Cllr Kennelly that nobody is dragging their heels on the project adding that it is protection of public funds and not bureaucracy.
Kerry County Council says a senior engineer has been appointed to oversee both the North Kerry Greenway and the Tralee to Fenit Greenway; a team will be appointed shortly to progress both projects.
Work on the north Kerry project is expected to begin later this year and will take 18 months to complete.
