Kerry Sinn Féin TD Martin Ferris has asked the Local Electoral Area Boundary Committee to grant Castleisland its own Municipal District in the upcoming revision of boundaries.
“Castleisland town has been neglected for many years, and has not, unlike other similar sized towns, benefited from tourism or industry,” said Deputy Ferris.
New Five-Seat District
“My proposal would see Castleisland at the heart of a new five-seat municipal district and it would encompass the surrounding areas which traditionally would have had an affinity with the town.
“It could potentially kickstart an area of the county which has long been overlooked for development and bring life back to many of the surrounding villages which have also suffered economically.
Castleisland in the Shadows
“Castleisland should no longer have to remain in the shadow of Tralee and Killarney and should have stand alone municipal district status.
“My submission would see Tralee, Listowel, Killarney and South & West Municipal Districts each be represented by seven councillors and a new Castleisland area with five seats to reflect its size,” said Deputy Ferris – throwing out some welcome food for thought for the area.
