A proposed 32-kilometre greenway in South Kerry has been granted planning permission.

An Bord Pleanala has given the green light despite many landowners in the area strongly objected to the plans.

The greenway will stretch from Renard Point to Glenbeigh and will run mainly along a disused railway track.

To facilitate the greenway, lands owned by about 197 people would be bought by compulsory purchase order.

However, about 27 landowners objected to the plans.

Last year, An Bord Pleanála held an oral hearing in Tralee that lasted two weeks.

The planning board has now given the plans the go-ahead, subject to 11 conditions.

The Mayor of Kerry, Patrick Connor-Scarteen, welcomes the decision, saying it will bring huge tourism to the area.
