Claims of tourists being prevented from driving around the Gap Of Dunloe

A B&B owner in Caherciveen is claiming that poneymen are stopping tourists from driving around the Gap of Dunloe. It`s understood that a group of Dutch tourists were told to turn back by the ponymen. A spokesperson for the poneymen rejects the allegation. Kerry County Council says the road through the Gap of Dunloe is a public roadway and the public have right of way at all times. The Council says the ponymen have no authority to stop people driving through. B&B owner Alan Landers says there appears to be only one way for tourists to travel through the gap.
