Kerry County Council logoTHE Cathaoirleach of Kerry County Council has welcomed the announcement of €745,000 in funding for a number of projects across the county under the CLÁR programme.

Cllr Michael O’Shea said the funding will allow Kerry County Council to carry out a range of enhancements in communities and at community facilities.

The funding will allow for the provision of warning lights and safety measures at 19 schools; the provision of Multi-Usage Outdoor Play facilities at Kenmare Pier and Dingle Pier; the development of a new playground in Dingle; and the upgrading of access roads to community facilities and amenities.

“This represents a wonderful investment in essential local facilities and amenities. In particular, I welcome the funding provided for safety enhancements at schools around the county – this will ensure that the approaches to schools are made safer for pupils, parents and staff,” said Cllr O’Shea.

“I am delighted that the Council will now be in position to proceed with a new playground for Dingle with funding of €184,000 provided. A new playground for the town is very necessary and this represents a great step forward for the project. It is also great to see new outdoor play facilities being developed in Kenmare and Dingle,” he said.

The Cathaoirleach also welcomed an allocation of €167,000 for access roads to community facilities in Tralee, Ballybunion, Firies, Annascaul and Killorglin.
