Cllr. Maura Healy Rae raised the following motion at the recent meeting of the Killarney Municipal area concerning issues she followed up on from previous meetings.
Cllr. Healy Rae outlined the issues she raised surrounding issues in Currow and Farranfore.
Farranfore Village Lags
“Firstly, I raised major concerns about the dangerous lags on the approach to Farranfore Village and highlighted that these are certainly some of the worst in the county.
Kerry County Council agreed that they were dangerous and will make a ‘submission for funding to the TII to repair the bad lags in Farranfore Village.’
I welcomed that a submission will be made and outlined how important this stretch of road is, it serves the people of Castleisland, Tralee and North Kerry.
Secondly, further to previous motions I put down, I raised the issue of a safety barrier being erected from Farranfore Village to the Airport and cited the serious danger this stretch of road now is given how open it is.
Kerry County Council outlined that ‘funding for provision of a safety barrier will be raised with the TII again at the next opportunity.’
Reidy Bridge in Currow Village
“Lastly, following previous notice of motion regarding the clearing of Reidy Bridge in Currow Village, I am glad that these works have been carried out and thank Kerry County Council workers. I also asked Kerry County Council whether or not an application had been made for funding under the Minor Works Flood Mitigation Scheme to repair the bank of the river which is threatening to flood Currow Village.
“I was informed that positive action was being taken and that the design for such an application was nearly complete and that it would be submitted to the OPW in the next fortnight,” Cllr. Healy Rae concluded.
