A group of former Denny’s factory workers opposed to relocating Tralee Court House to the Island of Geese site have said it is ‘abhorrent’ that the lasting memory to the generations of families who spent their working lives at Denny’s should be a place of ‘crime and punishment’.

In 2018 the Court Services expressed interest in moving the courthouse from its current location in Ashe Street to the former army barracks at Ballymullen. In more recent years a portion of the site at Island of Geese – where the old Denny's meat factory was located – has been earmarked as a possible location.
