The Council will look into finding out who the owners are of the house (on the right of picture) at the High Street/Strand Street roundabout.

THE Mayor of Tralee has called on the Council to buy a house with the purpose of demolishing it to improve a dangerous junction.

At the meeting of Tralee Municipal District of Kerry County Council on Monday, Fianna Fáil Cllr. Johnnie Wall asked that the Council would “purchase the two-storey derelict house at the beginning of Chapel St./Basin road to widen the road and upgrade the roundabout in High St.”

He said this is a highly dangerous corner and needs urgent attention. Mayor Wall said it would make a huge difference to the area if the road could be widened.

In reply, Council management said the property is not registered with Land Registry and the details of the owner are not available to the MD at present.

They said a funding source would be required to purchase the property and Tralee MD will endeavour to identify the detail of the owners to determine the status of the property.
