Cats living along diverted routes around the Dysart Bridge reconstruction work were the big losers as so may of them lost all their lives to speeding traffic over the past couple of months.

Farmers also had great difficulties driving cattle to and from their daily milking sessions where road crossings were a necessity.


Deputy Danny Healy-Rae and Cllr Maura Healy-Rae have called on the TII and Kerry County Council to provide the necessary funding to restore fully both the Dromulton Road from Ballybeg to Davie Roche’s Cross, and the Camp Road from Dysart to Knockeen.

Roads in Diabolical State

“Both roads have been left in a diabolical state having been used as diversions while work was being carried out on Dysart Bridge,” they said in a joint statement.

Both Danny and Maura have been making continuous representations regarding this and they believe the people in these areas are entitled to have their roads restored to a satisfactory state.
