A spokesperson for Kerry County Council says there is no evidence of any damage to marine life in Kenmare as a result of the oil spill at the weekend. Vincent Hayes of the environment section who examined the scene says despite diesel being visible in the bay it will eventually disappear. Diesel is the lightest form of oil and in the coming days the tide is expected to break up the spill.Mr. Hayes will be visiting the scene today to monitor progress. Gardai are examining the scene and talking to locals but are not pursuing a definite line of inquiry. The leak occurred shortly after midnight Saturday, from a tank located on Kenmare pier, but it is not known how the spill started.
