Inspected, Cleaned and Sanitised

The playgrounds are being inspected, cleaned and sanitised this week in advance of their reopening.

Those visiting the playgrounds are asked to adhere to the public health guidelines and advice on social distancing.

Bring Hand Sanitiser

Kerry County Council is asking that children be supervised at all times.

Parents or guardians are encouraged to bring hand sanitiser with them for use before and after visiting the playground in the interests of public health.
