DAIL Questions 14 March 1950
[1793]Mr. Kissane:  I am not going to enlarge on it, but in our attempts, and let us be genuine in our attempts, to establish industries here, I think we should turn our attention to the possibilities of developing the bogs more than we have been doing; but, unfortunately, at the present time instead of that, as far as the County Kerry, which I represent, is concerned—
Mr. Kissane:  Bord na Móna have been doing a certain amount, but instead of going ahead, they are closing down works. I refer to my own county, where schemes of work had been carried on in bogs near Listowel and Cahirciveen and now Bord na Móna are taking their machinery away.
Mr. Keyes:  (1) Nil and (2) 7. Prior to the confirmation in recent months of compulsory purchase orders the Kerry County Council had available only 59 plots for the erection of cottages.
Cost of houses erected in South Kerry area to date ranges from £750 to £1,200 and proposed rents are 6/8 per week, exclusive of rates. Accurate estimates for future cottages are not possible at this stage.
Road Grant Kerry 1948/49 was 210,001 and in 49/50 grant was 119,168.
Éamon Ó Cíosáin:  asked the Minister for Local Government whether the road from the Mail road cross to the village of Newtownsandes, County Kerry, which forms part of the bus route from Limerick to Listowel, is to be steam-rolled; and, if so, when the work is likely to commence.
Mr. Keyes:  It is for the county council to decide on the road works to be undertaken in each financial year. I understand that the rolling of the road referred to by the Deputy is not included in the works which are proposed for the coming financial year.
