Killarney residents heading to Tralee will now find it easier to pay for parking as new machines which take a card payment have been installed.

Kerry County Council began the process of installing the new Contactless Pay Parking Machines in public car parks in Tralee yesterday (Tuesday).

The new machines, which will allow users to pay for their parking tickets by card as well as cash, will cater for growing trend towards non-cash payments.

The Tralee Municipal District commenced Phase 1 of this project in the Brandon car park machines and will be initially installing 20 locations in the public car parks around Tralee. These include Brandon car park, Garvey’s car park, Balloonagh car park, Parklands car park, The Tannery car park, The Abbey car park, St Johns car park, Dom O’Donnell’s and Slatt’s car park.

Following this phase, the installation of contactless pay parking machines will commence for on-street parking locations, with the on-street element expected to be completed in July.

“It’s hugely positive to have these machines installed around Tralee,” Mayor of Tralee, Cllr Johnnie Wall said.

“We are increasingly moving towards a cashless society, and people often don’t have cash on them when they go to pay for a parking ticket. To have these machines installed will help greatly with this issue.”

Killarney cyclist Sam Bolger (18) has been selected as one of four riders for the Belgian Project – one of the most prestigious stepping stones for Irish riders with ambitions to turn professional.

Northern Ireland-based Belgian Danny Blondell is the man behind the project.

For the last 15 years Blondell selects between four and six Irish riders and sends them to Belgium where they stay with local families and contest pro and semi-pro races.

As a race commentator Blondell is well placed to decide who is deserving of inclusion in the project.

Over the first six months of the year he makes decisions while attending early season races.

Those lucky enough to get selected go to live and race in Belgium for the second six months of the year.

Bolger, from Lewis Road, was selected after winning the junior race in the Cycling Ireland National Road Series in Mayo in March and the Orwell Stage Race in County Wicklow in June.

“He is delighted, it is a very big deal,” his father Paul told the Killarney Advertiser.

“He has had a very good year and the wins in Mayo and Wicklow secured the Belgium Project.”

Bolger will head to Belgium in late July and after to the Junior Tour of Ireland which takes place in County Clare between July 12 and 17.
