MUSLIM CALL TO PRAYER NOT TO BE ALLOWED AT KILKENNY MOSQUE.
Serious traffic concerns too.
The call to prayer will not be allowed at the proposed Kilkenny mosque, for which the land was bought this week.
Under precedent from the conditions of the Kerry mosque in Tralee no amplified call is allowed from a minaret or from anywhere within a mosque in urban Ireland.
This is to clarify a point that arose in the comments in our earlier report this week on the issue.
This article shows the conditions applicable that should all be similar in the case of the Kilkenny mosque.
Furthermore, according to some in the Kilkenny Islamic Community themselves a big problem could arise concerning traffic , especially on Fridays, the Islamic holy day of the week, with up to a hundred cars heading over there for worship.
But they believe that traffic problems can be ironed out with good planning of the orientation and exit/entry points and arrangements of the building from the drawing board stage.
Traffic problems would be complicated with traffic pulling in and out of Aldi's across the road from the proposed new mosque.
