&

 

The timeframe for public consultation on proposals for the development of part of the Island of Geese (Denny) site in Tralee has been extended following a decision on such consultations from the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government.

 

The department has advised that, because of current public health restrictions, the period from March 29 to the April 20 inclusive is disregarded in relation to the current public consultations.

Therefore, the period for receipt of submissions on both Part VIII consultations on the Island of Geese site has been extended to April 27.

The proposals, which were published in February, represent the first significant on-site developments at the Island of Geese which was recently the subject of a design masterplan.

One of the proposals includes the development of a three-storey development with a retail/restaurant/café unit on the ground floor. The other proposal is for a public realm space covering approximately one-third of the site, and includes:

  • A linear park with an appropriate balance of hard and soft landscaping.
  • Retention of the original brick chimney stack and extending its heights from 15m to 32m resembling its estimated original height.
  • The public realm, which includes paving, curved seating and a shallow amphitheatre, the installation of permanent umbrellas, seating, public lighting, electrical and water connection points, bicycles stands and a play area for children.

Ian O’Connell said he is delighted with the messages of support following his first broadcast as a presenter on Radio Kerry this week.

The well-known and popular Killarney man was left with life-changing injuries after falling from his bike in Killarney National Park in 2017.

Since the accident he has been a champion for the less fortunate under his mantra: “If you can’t stand up – standout”.

This was the inspiration behind his brand new radio show which aired for the first time on Wednesday evening.

‘Stand Out with Ian O’Connell’ will feature interviews with people who have overcome great adversary to reach even greater heights.

His first guest was fellow Killarney man Jordan Lee. The Paralympian represented Ireland in the Tokyo Olympics this summer.

“I was used to being in the studio from people interviewing me, but this time I turned the table,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“It was great to have Jordan on, two Killarney men! I really enjoyed it, it got a massive reaction and I got loads of emails and messages afterwards and into Thursday morning.”

Ian will reveal his guest for the show on the previous Monday through various social media channels.
