Quite a lot of sections of the South Kerry Greenway will open in 2024.
That’s in accordance Kerry County Council, which is able to procure consultants early subsequent 12 months to re-examine sections not granted permission.
The council was responding to questions from councillors Michael Cahill and Patrick Connor-Scarteen at this month’s Kenmare Municipal District assembly.
Councillor Patrick Connor-Scarteen requested the council to provide a proposed timeline for the South Kerry Greenway.
Councillor Michael Cahill referred to as on the council to make sure planning is granted to all components of the greenway, together with sections from Ballycarbery/Castlequin to Cahersiveen and onwards to Renard Level.
