The HSA does not intend on bringing charges following the death of two tourists in the Gap of Dunloe last year.

Normand Larose and his partner Rosalyn Joy Few were holidaying in Kerry when they took a pony and trap ride in the Gap of Dunloe on the 9th April 2018.

The Garda Press Office says the pony and trap left the road and ended up around 17 feet down an embankment at approximately 1:40pm on the 9th April last.

It says no charge has been made in relation to this incident and a file has been prepared for the DPP.

The press office adds no further information is available at this time.

The Health and Safety Authority, which investigated the incident as a workplace accident, says its investigation has concluded.

It does not propose bringing any charges in relation to the deaths of Mr Larose and Ms Joy Few.
