A LOCAL councillor has expressed concern about recent reports of anti-social behavior on a Fenit beach.

Fianna Fáil Tralee MD  Councillor Mikey Sheehy said he is deeply concerned about reports involving drag racing and reckless driving.

A local resident alerted Cllr Sheehy to an alarming incident where a group of individuals was seen drag racing and performing dangerous manoeuvres on the beach, endangering both the tombolo linking to Fenit Island and the safety of beachgoers.

“The tombolo, a vital natural feature, is currently under threat due to erosion, and local efforts are underway to protect and enhance it,” said Cllr Sheehy. “However, these efforts are undermined by the irresponsible actions of a few individuals who prioritise thrills over environmental preservation and community safety.”

In light of this incident, Cllr Sheehy has called for immediate action to address this issue and prevent further damage to the beach and surrounding ecosystem.

He has urged authorities to increase surveillance and enforcement measures, including the possibility of deploying a summer guard for Fenit, to deter anti-social behaviour and ensure the safety of residents and visitors.

He encouraged anyone with information about such incidents to come forward and assist in tackling the issue.
