Killorglin Area Services Centre

Released: 05 January 2008

The County Council Area Service building is part of the EUR34m Town Centre Project located at the Iveragh Road/School Road Junction.  This is a partnership project developed by Kerry County Council and Laune Properties.  The development includes retail units, apartments, 130 underground car park spaces, a tourist office, public toilets, plaza, town park/playground and the Area Service Centre which forms a land mark building with 4 focal facades.

When fully complete this project will constitute the transformation of less ecstatically pleasing properties owned/occupied by 6 entities.

The Area Service Centre building is being populated on a phased basis.  The Council Area Office opened on Monday and the Library on Tuesday of this week.  The very prestigious Bewick Seven Ages Collection of paintings are being hung over the next 3 weeks.  The tourist office also opened this week and will be fully operational in January.  The car park will be ready in approximately 3 weeks to be followed by the playground in January/February.  The former tourist office is being demolished today to make way for work on the provision of a roundabout.

Part of the Area Service Centre building, which was originally intended to be a Garda Station, was purpose built for letting.  A decision will be made in the new year in regard to the allocation of the remaining offices (approximately one sixth of the floor area).  Priority will be given to Council needs and complimentary services which help deliver an integrated public service to the people of Kerry.

The project is a tribute to the various community groups who took an interest, residents, traders, the owners and occupiers of the space on which it is constructed, the developers (Laune Properties), the main contractors (ECK) and their sub-contractors, management, staff and consistent support of the Elected Members of the Council.
