Deputy Danny Healy-Rae TD has issued a statement to express his disappointment at the snail’s pace of progress on the proposed Macroom Bypass due to a population of the endangered ‘Kerry Slug’ along the chosen route.

“I am very disappointed with the announcement that it will cost €2 million to remove the ‘Kerry Slugs’ from the proposed route of the Macroom Bypass.

Spend Money on People

“I cannot understand how it will cost this much and I would prefer to see this money spent to reduce the number of people waiting on trollies in UHK.

“Furthermore, I would like to know how it was decided that this slug, living in Cork, is from Kerry?

Snail’s Pace

“Are these slugs wearing a Kerry jersey or is there proof that they travelled all the way from Kerry in the last 500 years?

“Do we know how long it took the slugs to travel from Kerry? Danny concluded.
