August Newsletter

Keep up to date with the local news in Kenmare

Posted on: 28 Aug 2018

As many will know Kerry County Council have purchased approximately 13 acres of land, known as the Peninsula land, down by Kenmare Pier. Engineers are currently working on marking out the new boundaries and fencing them. We have been told that the land will be ready to be opened to the Public by the beginning of Sept. As we know these things take time, but we are very grateful to Kerry County Council for progressing this matter as quickly as possible. Plans for the land have not yet been designed but it is hoped that a draft plan, to be used as a starting point, will be drawn up over the coming months.

And so from the future back to our past! The KENMARE CHRONICLE committee hope to have completed the collection of old photos and stories of MAIN STREET by the end of August so that they can begin putting their 2019 publication together, please send anything you would like to share as soon as possible so that it can be included. Thanks to everyone who has contributed so far in adding pieces to this social history jig saw puzzle of another street in Kenmare. All information can be emailed to info@kenmarechronicle.com 

Now that we are coming to the end of the Summer Season we are once again looking forward to the next events on our calendar. The Kenmare Small Roads Theatre and Dining festival will take place from the 14th to the 24th of September. There is a great programme laid out this year with plenty for everyone to enjoy. Tickets for all plays will be €12 in August but the price will rise to €15 in September so be sure to buy your tickets early to avoid disappointment.

Halloween is fast approaching and again this year we would encourage people to not only enjoy the festival but to come on board and be part of it. The Halloween Howl is in its 7th year this year and we are hoping to make some changes and make the festival bigger and better than ever! So if you have some ideas or whether you fancy yourself as a ‘scarer’ down the woods, would like to work on costumes and props or if you prefer to help out as a marshal, all help and ideas are very gratefully received. Please contact us here in the office, marketing@kenmare.ie, and let us know your thoughts. The festival will run from Friday 26th Oct to Sat 3rd of Nov.
