Griffin Announces over €2.2M in Government Funds for Kerry Airport

Kerry Fine Gael TD and Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Brendan Griffin has announced major funding of €2,208,911 for Kerry Airport.

The funding will go towards improvement works, safety and security. The amount is almost €1 million of an increase on the 2018 figure.

Range of Investments

This Government funding from the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport will go towards a range of investments for the airport.

Minister Griffin said that the funding announcement is yet another example of the Government’s strong commitment to Kerry Airport, which plays a vital role in the economic and social well being of the people of the county.

Huge Funding for Kerry

“This is huge funding coming to Kerry Airport, on top of a number of large grants for Kerry Airport that I have announced over the last two years.

These grants complement the Kerry Dublin flights subsidy that is also serving this county well.

This Government’s continued strong support for Kerry Airport represents major support for rural Ireland and is helping to sustain jobs and create new ones.”

Funds for Grounds Work

While an operation of this kind will demand a big slice of the available grant aid for high tech equipment upgrading, there is also a chunk aside for groundwork.

Consideration has also been given for jobs like: Perimeter Security Fencing; Resurfacing of Ramp Asphalt; Rock Armour Protection and Concrete Edge Channel Upgrading.
