Council Placing Grit At Locations Around Tralee For Public Use

Posted by


THE Kerry Local Coordination Group met again at County Buildings today to review preparations for the cold weather conditions expected over the coming days with regard to weather advisories issued by Met Éireann.

The salting of major routes across the county will continue as required in the coming days. Motorists and pedestrians are advised to be cautious whether routes have been treated or not and to proceed with care.

As a precaution, Kerry County Council is placing supplies of grit at dozens of locations around the county over the course of  the next 24 hours. Members of the public are asked to use this grit only where urgently required.

Continued below…


The Group has reminded members of the public to look in on elderly or vulnerable neighbours to ensure they have adequate heating and food supplies for a few days.

Updates will be provided on Kerry County Council social media channels and more information will be available on its dedicated Alerts website via the Kerry County Council website.
