Storm Hannah Passes Without Too Much Impact In Tralee Area

Posted by


APART from a fallen tree on Dan Spring Road, debris on some outlying roads and power outages in some areas, Storm Hannah didn’t cause too much damage in town last night.

However, other areas of the county saw many trees blocking roads in north and south Kerry.

The Kerry Local Coordination Team discussed the impact of Storm Hannah this morning and a comprehensive clean-up is underway on the ground around the county.

The group is asking all road users to travel with extreme care on all routes this morning as there is significant debris and tree branches on roads.

Road users should also be mindful of council staff who are working on roads this morning to address issues.

Many of them worked late into the night and have been out since 6.00am and the Local Coordination Team  acknowledged their support as well as that of Kerry Fire Service, Kerry Civil Defence, An Garda Síochána and the HSE.

As of this morning there were no issues to report in the Tralee area apart from a tree blocking the Clash Road but that has now been cleared.

Some of the issues they dealt with in north Kerry were a fallen tree at Bedford Cross near Listowel; a tree blocking the road on Moyvane to Listowel road at Sheehy’s Bend; a tree blocking the road on Asdee to Listowel road near the GAA Field; a tree blocking the road between Moran’s Cross and Quinlan’s Cross  and an electricity pole damaged on New Line Road, Ballyheigue.

The Kerry County Council Emergency Line remains open for any issues to be reported on 066 7183588.
