The Chambers purpose is primarily to market the town of Kinsale and then also represent its members on matters that impact the future of the town. We have taken time to gather the correct information and make an informed decision on the correct course of action for the Chamber.

We have also informed Failte Ireland and the OPW of the application for their review and comment and we are currently liaising with Failte Ireland in this regard.

We attach below details of the application for members to consider and make their own submissions should they choose to do so.
