Socio-economic plan for Kenmare

South Kerry Development Partnership and Kerry County Council have contracted Ian Dempsey, Prescience, to develop a socio-economic plan for Kenmare. This plan will be linked to relevant national, regional and local plans and strategies and the process will develop a vision and action plan for the social, economic and environmental development of Kenmare.   The plan will seek to build on the town’s undoubted strengths while seeking to mitigate its weaknesses, ensuring that active citizenship, social inclusion and social equity is maintained; that economic development opportunities are optimised and that the attractiveness and quality of the public realm and the built and natural environment is enhanced.

To lay some of the groundwork for the preparation of the plan – Ian Dempsey has prepared a questionnaire (link below) on Survey Monkey for completion and circulation. Please distribute this questionnaire and encourage people to complete it.   

Please note that all replies received are anonymised and confidential and will only be used for the purposes of this survey. Thank you for your support.


Multi-agency support for the new residents of Atlantic Lodge

Kenmare Family Resource Centre is delighted to be part of a multi-agency approach in response to the welcoming of Asylum Seekers in Atlantic Lodge, Kenmare. Atlantic Lodge is a mixed hostel consisting of single women, single men & families. People have come from Georgia, Albania, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Ghana, Pakistan, India, China, Nigera, Ethiopia, Sudan, Eritheria and more! HSE staff, TIRC & KASI are supporting work on the ground & helping to settle people in.

As this work is completed, Kenmare FRC along with HSE, SKDP & Kerry ETB will be delighted to work with a team of volunteers to deliver English conversational classes, children's activities and activities for adults, in an effort to assist this new community to integrate into the welcoming and supportive community of Kenmare.
