Cllr Dan McCarthy reports

Hedge cutting season is now open to all property and landowners. I would urge people to carry out these essential hedge cutting works for the health and safety of our road users. I am delighted to see that the hedges are being cut on the Kenmare to Castletownbere road, which I have lobbied for over the past number of months.

Farming. I have brought a motion before the meeting of Kerry county council to ask the Minister for Agriculture to extend the grant for the purchase of sheep tags until the end of the year.

The new school year has begun and I would like to wish all those starting, returning and perusing further education the best of luck in their studies. I would also remind drivers to remain extra vigilant near schools during the peak times.

I would like to congratulate all involved in tidy towns committees in their recent achievements.

I would like to wish all involved in promoting Kenmare in this competition best of luck, it was great to see so many different businesses getting involved in promoting Kenmare.

Clinics. I am available every day in Kenmare Mart. I also hold clinics throughout South Kerry Cllr Dan Mc Carthy, Kilcurrane East, Kenmare, Co Kerry 087-6846513 087-2224411 (work number).
