Kerry County Council, in conjunction with Fáilte Ireland, is continue to to triall a clockwise traffic management system for visitors on Slea Head Drive from Friday July 29 to Monday 22 August.

During this trial period, the Council asks that larger vehicles travel in a clockwise direction around Slea Head, starting at Dingle town, then on to Ventry, Slea Head, Coumeenole, Dunquin, Ballyferriter, Muríoch, Feohanagh and back to Dingle.

The trial, taking place on this occasion during the peak visitor season, follows a similar trial which took place earlier this year and will inform future considerations on traffic management in the area.

A Kerry County Council employee will be positioned each day from 10.30 am to 4.00pm at Coumeenole to encourage larger vehicles that are driving in the incorrect direction to follow the correct route.

“Visitors will be encouraged to follow the recommended route from the outset resulting in more time to relax and enjoy the magnificent views, attractions, history and culture of this beautiful part of Kerry,” said a council statement.

Local access will be maintained as normal.

Extensive directional signage advising of the clockwise system will be erected locally.

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
