THE commitment of Kerry County Council personnel and volunteers to keeping the Park Road area of Killarney looking spick and span over the years was acknowledged at a ceremony this morning with the dedication of the Park Road roundabout to their name.
Following a proposal from Cllr Michael Gleeson, it was agreed to place signage on the roundabout to recognise the effort in maintaining the area on the eastern end of the town.
Council staff, past and present, as well as representatives from Killarney Looking Good, joined the Cathaoirleach of Killarney Municipal District, Cllr Niall Kelleher for the short ceremony on the Park Road today. Also present was the Manager of the Killarney Municipal District, Angela McAllen and Killarney Municipal District Officer, Eileen O’Donoghue.
Cllr Kelleher said the dedication of the roundabout was a small but very public statement of appreciation for the volunteers and council staff who continue to help maintain Killarney’s international reputation for tidiness and cleanliness.
“There is a great meitheal of people who contribute to the upkeep of this part of Killarney and it is fitting that this be acknowledged with the dedication of this roundabout,” he said.
