Killorglin’s Streetscapes Project Update
As you may know, a streetscapes project was initiated by the Killorglin Chamber Alliance at the end of October. Each building on Upper Bridge Street is getting painted to a professional level bringing a fresh new look to this area of the town.
The project is funded by the Town and Village Renewal Scheme as well as volunteer work and a property owners contribution.
The Killorglin Streetscapes Project is supported by Kerry County Council, Killorglin Chamber Alliance, Killorglin Tidy Towns, K-Fest, the property owners in Upper Bridge Street and part-funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development Town and Village Renewal Scheme.
A big thanks to Topline Boyles Killorglin, Cara Credit Union, Alan King and his team who currently are painting their way through the area.
We hope to expand on its success in 2020 to other parts of the town.
