Our work in the Republic of Ireland continues with a new appointment in the country’s fifth largest county, Kerry.
Nicknamed “The Kingdom” due to its origins in the kingship of Ciar, Fáilte Ireland has appointed us, with TOBIN Consulting Engineers, Louise Browne Associates and LUC, to prepare both interpretation and wayfinding signage across two Greenways which are in situ but don’t yet have any signage to help tourists navigate the route.
The Greenways and Blueways across Ireland are chock full of potential for maximising opportunities for communities across Ireland to make best use and enjoy the outdoors. The first route goes from Tralee to Fenit, and the second connects Listowel to Abbeyfeale, at the border of County Limerick, linking into the Limerick Greenway.
The project follows our successful nationwide project, where, working as part of the wider consortium, we devised a best practice toolkit – soon to be published – for helping developers plans for and provide visitor amenities.
Sue Manley, strategy director, said:
“We’re pleased to be continuing our long-standing relationship with Fáilte Ireland and to be able to improve the wayfinding on offer across the Kingdom County. As with all our projects, this scheme will ease people movement and encourage more visitors to get to know the county better on these beautiful routes, all while choosing active travel over less sustainable modes.”
This scheme represents that 15th project we’ve worked on across the Emerald Isle since we started working there in 2015.
