Malachy Walsh and Partners on behalf of Kerry County Council have appointed Munster firm – Loftus Demolition and Recycling Ltd – as the contractor to carry out the demolition and site remediation works on the Denny Bacon Factory Site at The Island of Geese in town.

Loftus Demolition and Recycling Ltd have now taken control of the site and work on the demolition of the factory is expected to begin on Monday, August 14.

It is anticipated the contractor will return the site to Kerry Council by the end of 2017 with all but a few historical buildings removed.

It will not be long now before members of the public will start to see a lot more activity around the old factory site. All of which will hopefully create a lot more interest and excitement in the regeneration of Tralee Town Centre.

Meanwhile, as part of the Regional Operational Programme, Kerry County Council is also currently working with a team of specialist consultants – Reddy Architecture & Urbanism – for the creation of a masterplan for the Island of Geese Site and the Tralee Town Centre West area. It is anticipated that the masterplan will be also be completed by the end of 2017.

The demolition of the old Denny Bacon Factory site and regeneration of The Island of Geese, Tralee project is  part of a three year long Southern & Eastern Regional Operational Programme, co-funded by the Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government, The European Regional Development Fund and Kerry County Council in partnership with the Southern Regional Assembly.

Gangs of youths drunk shouting and roaring till all hours of the morning with broken bottels keeping the residents in this area awake til all hours of the night..
