Kerry County Council public counters and offices around the county have reopen to the public today (Monday).

This includes all customer service desks at County Buildings and all of the council’s Area Service Centres in Killarney, Tralee, Listowel, Cahersiveen, Castleisland, Dingle, Kenmare and Killorglin, as well as the Environment Department at Maine Street, Tralee and the Motor Tax Office at Princes’ Quay, Tralee.

From today (Monday), customers will be able to make applications and payments for services at all offices. Enhanced safety measures are in place, including hand sanitisation and recommended social distancing signage. There will be limits on the number of customers that can be accommodated in reception areas and a queue management system will be in place in the busier offices. Kerry County Council asks that customers comply with these requirements and any directions given by staff in the interest of public safety.

In keeping with national public health guidelines, access within Council buildings will be restricted to customer service desk areas.

The Council is asking members of the public to continue, where possible, to use telephone, email and online facilities to engage with the Council to minimise personal interaction and ensure social distancing.

The Council acknowledges the support and cooperation of the public as the new arrangements are put in place. Further information and contact details for all Council services are available on the Council website
