VILLAGE REVAMP: Scartaglin is one of ten villages in Noth/East Kerry which is set for a revamp thanks largely to the provision of funding from the Rural Development Programme which is being administered through North/East Kerry Development. Funding of up to € 500,000 is being made available to each village with 75% capable of being drawn down from the above mentioned programme which was formerly known as Leader Fund. NEKD will be working in close association with Kerry County Council and other agencies in having the proposed improvement work carried out.
Congratulations and best wishes to Michael G Murphy of Rathmore and formerly of Scartaglin who recently retired as a night superintendent from St. Finian's Hospital Killarney. Enjoy your retirement Michael and good luck and good health for the future.
