Kerry councillors raise concerns over coronavirus

Concerns over the coronavirus were also raised by Independent councillor Donal Grady at a special meeting of Kerry County Council yesterday.

He outlined his concerns ahead of Ireland’s Six Nations match against Italy.

Cllr Grady said health is far more important than a match.

His colleague Independent Cllr Niall Botty O’Callaghan added the county needs to be prepared particularly from a tourism perspective.

The issue was also raised by Fianna Fáil Cllr Mikey Sheehy at the recent Southern Regional Health Forum.
