Killarney steps forward to call for safety at danger junction

Published

THE Mayor of Killarney Municipal District, Councillor Niall Kelleher, has drawn up a petition calling for safety at the Lewis Road/Killarney Bypass junction.

Killarney Advertiser is campaigning for safety at the junction which has been the scene of several very serious accidents in recent years, a number of which have been fatal. “Road users, including motorists, cyclists and pedestrians, are living in fear anytime they have to access the busy junction,” said Mayor Kelleher.

There were two accidents last week in the space of just three days at the accident blackspot and Mayor Niall Kelleher’s petition has attracted over 100 signatures in two hours this afternoon alone.

Cllr Kelleher has confirmed he will present the petition to the Minister for Transport and Transport Infrastructure Ireland on behalf of the town by the middle of this month.

“As Mayor of Killarney and on behalf of residents of and visitors to the town, I am calling on the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Shane Ross, TD, and officials of Transport Infrastructure Ireland to take immediate action to prevent future loss of life or serious injury at the traffic junction linking Lewis Road in Killarney with the Bypass Road,” said Cllr Kelleher.

“Kerry County Council and, in particular, Killarney Municipal District Council, have made repeated representations to Ministers and TII officials on this matter and yet, nothing has been done to rectify the situation. Our calls appear to have fallen on deaf ears and we urge those responsible to do what they are being paid to do.

“This situation is not tolerable and it cannot be allowed to continue. On behalf of the undersigned people with an interest in Killarney, I demand urgent action.” You can sign the petition at https://www.change.org/p/minister-shane-ross-td-upgrade-the-junction-at-lewis-rd-on-the-killarney-bypass/nftexp/ex16/v6/819358342?recruiter=819358342&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=share_petition&utm_content=ex16%3Av6

What do roses, wrens, King Puck, fairies and Santa Claus have in common? Well, all now feature in a new children’s book co-written by a mother and son.

The new illustrated poetry collection for children, ‘A Very Kerry Year’, by Killorglin mother and son, Jacinta and Conor Browne, has been published just in time for Christmas.

And all proceeds will be donated to Comfort for Chemo, an organisation whose mission it is to build and equip a chemotherapy unit for the people of Kerry.

The charity is close to the young author’s heart as Conor himself was undergoing cancer treatment while writing this book.

With original poetry by the mother and son, the book also has another separate family connection as the talented illustrators are local artists, father-daughter duo Con and Rochelle Lucey, with each page awash with colour and beautiful drawings.

“I know first-hand how important it is to have a comfortable environment while receiving chemotherapy,” Conor said.

‘A Very Kerry Year’ is currently available for €12 from The Crystal Cave and the Reeks District Tourist Office in Killorglin and will soon be available in many more outlets throughout the county.
