Mayor of Killarney John Sheahan has called for a reduction of the speed limit at a junction on the main Killarney to Killorglin road. Cllr Sheahan and local campaigners hope that reducing the speed limit from 100kph to 60kph will make the stretch of road near the Beaufort Bridge safer.

The closing date for submissions for the speed limit review date is August 17. Many within the Beaufort Community are strongly in favour of decreasing the limit, and a petition is currently being signed at the Beaufort Bridge shop.

Local business owner Michael O’Sullivan says that the area on the busy N22 encompasses two busy junctions, one towards Lahard and the other towards Beaufort village. Both junctions are within 100 metres of each other. High volumes of fast-moving traffic is making access to this area very difficult and dangerous, he added.

Killarney native Patrick O’Sullivan Greene will launch his second book in the Great Southern Killarney on December 2.

O’Sullivan Greene explains Éamon de Valera’s mission to gain recognition for the newly formed Irish republic in New York in 1919 in his latest book ‘Revolution at the Waldorf: America and the Irish War of Independence’.

Without American recognition and funding the young Irish Government was sure to fail against the might of the British Empire and the book tells the story of how de Valera and Ireland-based Michael Collins – much to the defiance of the British authorities at Dublin Castle – got the new State off the ground.

O’Sullivan grew up in New Street and is now based in Beaufort after a career in finance took him all over the world including Dublin, London, New York and France.

“Killarney is the natural place for me to launch the book,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“There will be an interesting mix of people there.”

O’Sullivan Greene published his first book, ‘Crowdfunding the Revolution: The First Dáil Loan and the Battle for Irish Independence’, in 2020.
