Michael Healy-Rae turned down for permission for apartments in pub
Kerry TD Michael Healy-Rae has been refused planning for apartments in a vacant public house in Tralee, with the planning inspector describing what was proposed as “substandard” and meeting only the minimum requirements.Mr Healy-Rae is already the Dáil’s biggest landlord with up to 10 rental properties. However, his proposal for the part-conversion of Nancy Myles Pub, opposite the old army headquarters of the Munster Fusiliers in Tralee, has met strong local opposition.The original application was for change of use of most of the ground floor and extension to public house to nine residential units.Following a revised application, permission for four apartments was given by Kerry County Council.
