The €50,000 funding for Listry Bridge announced under the programme for 2022 for regional and local roads won’t even cover the cost of “employing a stop and go crew” according to Cllr Brendan Cronin.

Cronin lives close to the accident black spot on the Killarney to Milltown road. He has been campaigning for “the 23 years I am in the Council” to have the bridge upgraded or replaced.

The €50,000 announced for this year is on top of €30,000 allocated last year but Mr Cronin said: “I would have to go and check to see if anything was actually done there in the last year”.

A similar situation in North Kerry – the Dale Road – received €2,200,000 in the funding announcement and Cllr Cronin is calling for a similar amount of investment for the Mid-Kerry road.

“In all honesty, getting a €50,000 allocation in today’s world is useless. It would not over the cost of a stop and go crew setting up there for a couple of days,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“This road is a main artery. The people of North Kerry deserve Dale Road improvements and that kind of investment is needed in Listry.”

The Dóchas Drama Group will run a series of short plays at the Muckross Schoolhouse from December 5 to 7.

The group’s annual performance has been switched to the Muckross venue as its traditional base – the ballroom in the Killarney Avenue Hotel is being refurbished.

“If you are fed up with the incessant rain and constant bad news. Do you need a break? Are tired of listening to advice about your Christmas cake recipe? There is a perfect solution,” said the group’s Liz Ryan.

“We will present six short plays and some of the questions you may ask yourself are: 

“Why is Jane suddenly so honest?

“What did happen on December 9. Will Tiffany be promoted? Will Mags eventually find love?

“Can lost love be re-kindled? What do grandparents get up to when they’re babysitting?

For answers to these questions and more, come along to Muckross Schoolhouse on December 5, 6 and 7.”
