Updates on proposed Ring of Kerry closure

Published

on

Kerry County Council are proposing to close the N70 road from Caitín’s pub to the Glenbeigh side of the Gleensk Viaduct from 8pm to 7am for a period of 11 weeks from October to December 15 to facilitate essential works to support the embankment at the road below the Viaduct.

Any person having an objection to these proposals should lodge same, in writing, with the Administrative Officer, Kerry National Roads Office, Kerry County Council, The Island Centre, Castleisland, Co. Kerry or email to info@kerry.nrdo.ie not later than 5.00 pm on Monday 21" August 2023.

“As I have already stated, this closure, even though night time only, will be very intrusive on the lives of many people travelling in and out of South Kerry and Iveragh areas, including businesses for a long period. I am assured that these works are essential and that access will be allowed for emergency vehicles only, when required” said Fianna Fáil Councillor, Michael Cahill.

“An alternative route is to be signposted for those who wish to travel during the closure period. Kerry County Council has also invited submission of any objections by mail or email. This will be a huge inconvenience for anybody depending on the N70 route, but it appears that there is no alternative for the sake of safety.”

Kerry take on Cork in the first round of the Munster Championship at Fitzgerald Stadium on Saturday.

This glamour tie always attracts a huge crowd and Cork fans will travel in their droves from the Rebel County.

As a result there will be parking restrictions and traffic disruptions in the town on Saturday afternoon.

“Please be aware that the town will be bustling with activity, and traffic congestion is expected. Some parking areas may reach capacity, so we recommend allowing extra time for your journey,” said a Garda spokesperson.

Parking will be available in the following areas near the stadium: New Street, The Glebe car park, Fair Hill car park, High Street, Rock Road car park and the Lewis Road car park.

Parking in the vicinity of Fitzgerald Stadium is reserved for residents with parking passes only.

Killarney For Palestine is raffling two tickets to a Taylor Swift concert in Edinburgh.

The group is raising funds for the Halaq family who are known to Kerry Friends of Palestine and who are currently displaced in tents in the Gaza Strip.

Their homes were destroyed in the city of Khan Younis by Israeli airstrikes.
