Island of Geese
Co-funded by the ERDF (through the ROP 2014 – 2020, Designated Urban Centre Grant Scheme) and Kerry County Council, the Island of Geese is undergoing a €3m transformation from the derelict old Denny Bacon factory site to an architecturally designed urban linear public realm space.
It is Kerry County Council’s aspiration to develop a new urban mixed use quarter at The Island of Geese site, as defined in the Tralee Town Centre West Masterplan in a socially inclusive and sustainable manner, which will:
- a) Promote the regeneration of the Tralee Town Centre through the development of The Island of Geese, the enhancement of its physical fabric, and the transformation of its image so that it and Tralee Town Centre become an attractive place for all those living in, working in and visiting the area.
- b) Promote the development of the Tralee Town Centre West as an area which retains its past industrial urban character, its cultural and built heritage and is a vibrant and socially inclusive area and through the development of a new public amenity/public realm space as a focal point for the centre of the town by facilitating a vibrant (daytime & evening) economy.
