Orchard: Large apple trees

Having planted smaller fruit and nut trees by the Connolly/Brendan’s Park entrance, some more large apple trees were planted recently (by small socially distanced pods) along the top of the bank.

Check back for some fruit in the coming years

Project supported by Kerry County Council’s Community Environment Action Fund.

Orchard Maintenance


Some before and after pics from today’s (socially distanced) clean up of the orchard carried out by the students of Tralee Youthreach & facilitated by Niamh from Transition Kerry. We will be having another planting session next month, get in touch if you want to get involved.

One apple left if anyone wants it 🙂

Orchard Planting Day #1

The first batch of fruit and nut trees were planted as part of the greenway orchard today with the help of all the volunteer planters from Tralee Youthreach, who did a great job of digging holes, planting the trees and staking them. We will be back to mulch them soon.

Go raibh maith agaibh to all the Tralee Youthreach, Transition Kerry and Tralee to Fenit Greenway volunteers and little helpers too!
