Kerry Fine Gael Senator Paul Coghlan, welcoming the news, said: “I have no doubt that towns and villages across Kerry will benefit hugely from this investment. Wherever you have active Tidy Towns committees, it gives the place a real boost and creates the environment for tourism,” Senator Coghlan said.
