The construction of new footpaths in the Park Drive estate is nearing completion. Work started in early December. The repair work was made possible after Cllr Donal Grady allocated a portion of his €29,000 annual funding to the project.

Each elected councillor is given a personal budget to spend on local projects.

Grady used his allocation to fund the footpaths in Park Place, drainage works in Kilcummin and towards the new playground on Port Road.

“This is the second round of footpath works in Park Road. Sometimes if the job is too big the money has to come from two different allocations,” Cllr Grady told the Killarney Advertiser. “[The footpath work on] Park Drive was badly needed – it should be completed by the end of this week.”
