Cllr Dan Mc Carthy reports…

Roads.
I have highlighted recently and will continue to raise the urgent need of resurfacing works to take place on the Molls Gap road from Kilkeanna to Kenmare. I would like to thank Kerry county council staff for their quick response on cutting the hedges on the Poll na Capall road. I have also asked that there be a hazard deer signs to be erected on the Kenmare –Blackwater road.
Kenmare Community Hospital.
At a recent area council meeting, I put forward a motion enquiring as to if or what the update was in the opening of additional beds in Kenmare Community Hospital. This motion was passed unanimously and I await a response.
Farming.
The burning season deadlines have being causing a lot of farmers grief for the past number of years due to the adverse weather conditions that are present during the designated time. I have asked at a council meeting that these deadline dates be reviewed and extended.

I am delighted and honoured for being involved in negotiations for securing the Darkness into light walk for Kenmare. There will be a meeting to outline the route and organise the event in the coming weeks. Contact me for further information.
