Councillors To Call For Trading Kiosks And Further Lighting At The Canal

Posted by


THE extension of lighting and trading bays at the canal walk are to be requested by councillors in two separate motions this coming week.

The November meeting of Tralee Municipal District councillors takes place on Monday and developments at one of the town’s best amenities are on the agenda.

Sinn Féin Councillor Deirdre Ferris is calling on the Council to consider trading bays to be established at the canal walk.

She says these kiosk could provide food and beverages to the many families, walkers and runners who use the walkway daily.

“With the Blueway and the Tralee-Fenit Greenway, we need to encourage more small traders to provide key services on the route for future increased tourism,” read Cllr Ferris’ motion.

Meanwhile, Fianna Fáil Cllr Mikey Sheehy is to ask if there are plans to provide lighting on the second bank of the canal (from the Blennerville bridge side to the Lock Gates) and then further back to Cockleshell.

Cllr Sheehy says; “The regeneration of the area has become a hub for locals and tourists alike and lighting the area would be a hugely positive addition to this recreational space.”

There has been a noticeable increase in people on the walkway since Level 5 Restrictions were introduced. Council management will officially provide answers to the councillors requests on Monday.
