Daly Welcomes Decision on South Kerry Greenway

Sinn Féin TD for Kerry, Pa Daly, has welcomed Justice Humphreys’ decision on the South Kerry Greenway.

Pa Daly, Sinn Féin TD for Kerry, has welcomed Justice Humphreys’ decision on the South Kerry Greenway after he rejected claims that the planning approval is invalid. 

Teachta Daly said he was delighted to hear earlier today that the judgement by Justice Humphreys was in favour of the South Kerry Greenway. 

The Greenway plan proposes to run along the route of the old railway line from Glenbeigh to Renard Point – a trek of over 30 kilometres.The line opened in August 1893 and operated up to August 1960.

“Regardless of any other hearings that may follow this, related to the handling of the approval by An Bord Pleanála, Justice Humphreys has been clear that it will not affect the outcome of this decision.

Tourism and Hospitality Benefits

“The Greenway will provide huge potential for those business in South Kerry that will now benefit from the increased tourism and hospitality that will follow. This is badly  needed in light of the extended pandemic lock-down. 

“I hope that work can commence as soon as possible now that this decision has been made.”
