« BackAsbestos dumped in North Kerry described as “loaded gun on side of road”

“A loaded gun on the side” of the road is how a councillor described the recent dumping of highly toxic asbestos in North Kerry.

Mike Kennelly 1Fine Gael Councillor Mike Kennelly was contacted by locals who were outraged that several sheets of the cancer causing substance was dumped in the Kilmorna area, which is frequented by many passers-by and children.

The Environmental section of Kerry County Council and council management attended the scene and carried out an investigation.

There are currently no leads however as to where the asbestos originated or who dumped it.

Cllr Kennelly said this is an absolute disgrace – especially in light of the recent county clean-up.
