The Cathaoirleach of Kerry County Council and the Cathaoirleach of the Kenmare Municipal District have welcomed the decision of the Supreme Court on the South Kerry Greenway.

The Supreme Court rejected both applications for leave to appeal against the decision of the High Court last evening.

Cathaoirleach of Kerry County Council, Cllr Jimmy Moloney said the South Kerry Greenway will be transformative for the county and the southwest region.

“I am delighted that this matter has been settled by the Supreme Court and that Kerry County Council can now proceed with the construction of the greenway. Coming as it does so close to the scheduled opening of the Tralee-Fenit and Listowel-Abbeyfeale greenways this summer, this is an enormous boost for the local economy and the tourism industry in Kerry,” Cllr Moloney said.

Cathaoirleach of the Kenmare Municipal District, Cllr Michael Cahill said that the greenway had enormous potential to transform south Kerry.

“This project will be of enormous benefit to south Kerry and the entire county from an economic and tourism perspective. It has the potential to attract thousands of visitors to the area every year. This is a historic day for the Iveragh Peninsula and the whole of County Kerry. It will be one of our most iconic attractions and leisure amenities and I look forward to its construction over the coming years,” said Cllr Cahill.
