Co. Kildare's K Club Hotel & Golf Resort has applied to Kildare County Council for planning permission to build a 16,000 square foot ballroom and new meeting rooms.

According to The Irish Times, in addition to seeking permission to build a ballroom and new meetings rooms, The K Club is also planning to remove a swimming pool, and it is believed that future building plans could include a refurbishment of the resort's golf clubhouse.

New Chief Executive

The new developments at The K Club will be overseen by former Adare Manor general manager Paul Heery, who the resort's new owner, TLC Nursing Home Group operator Michael Fetherston, has appointed as its chief executive.
