A hearing into planning process around the the South Kerry Greenway started on Tuesday and is expected to run until 18 October. A senior planning inspector from An Bord Pleanála will oversee the process in the Manor West Hotel and Leisure Club in Tralee.

In August 2018, Kerry County Council lodged a planning application for the 32km greenway which is to run mainly on the old railway line from Glenbeigh to Renard outside Cahersiveen.
