Minister Griffin said that this Government funding increase is very positive news for the people of Kerry and marks significant investment in the county.

“This funding will add to great progress that has been made on Kerry’s road network in recent years and the good news is that there is further substantial funding to come. There will be further funding announced in the new year and I will be doing my level best to ensure that Kerry will do very well out of these tranches also.”
