Kerry County Council makes appeal to public to refrain from setting gorse fires

Kerry County Council and Kerry Fire Service have reiterated their appeal to members of the public to refrain from the setting of illegal gorse fires.

The appeal comes following reports of fires in the Castleisland/Currans area yesterday.

The local authority is asking landowners not to place any additional strain on emergency services at a time of national crisis and when emergency services are involved in supporting the response to COVID-19.
