Plans to relocate Killarney Rugby Club to Aghadoe have been given the go ahead. Last year, the club was refused permission to establish a new base in Kilcummin. Since 1993, it’s been leasing land from the HSE in Ballydribeen, but it was due to have left the site by August last year.

Kerry County Council has granted Killarney Rugby Football Club planning permission to develop pitches and a clubhouse at Caher, Aghadoe, Killarney.  In 2009 the club applied for permission to establish a new base in Kilcummin, however that was refused last year because of concerns over percolation, its proximity to an area of archaeological interest, and issues over sight lines.

These latest plans for Aghadoe, which also include flood lights, parking, an access roadway, footpaths, an entrance wall and signage, have been given the go ahead by Kerry County Council subject to 22 conditions.
