The funding announcement of €791,460 is in addition to the €704,030 paid out in April, bringing the total investment in Kerry for 2022 to €1,495,490.

The focus of the Local Improvement Scheme is on upgrading rural laneways and non-public roads which provide access to homes, farms and outdoor amenities.

Prior to today’s announcement, each Local Authority was asked to consult with local residents and landowners and identify road and laneway projects where works could start immediately and be completed this year.

The announcement has been welcomed by Minister for Education and Fianna Fáil Kerry TD Norma Foley and Kerry Fine Gael Deputy Brendan Griffin.
