Since the issue seems to be the loneliness of people in rural areas, who cannot go around to socialise, how about estabilishing a local minibus service for them?

In many remote parts of Scotland, which could be even more inaccessible than Kerry, they issued special van/buses to Royal Mail postmen, so that the driver can both use them to both deliver the mail and to bring people to town and back. It doesn’t seem impossible, to me, to provide a weekend service, even just for two round trips a day, to collect people who would like to enjoy a pint with local friends.
