N22 Tralee-Killarney road down to one lane due to burst water pipe

One of the busiest roads in the county is down to one lane due to a burst water pipe.

Kerry County Council says the N22 Tralee-Killarney Road at Farranfore is completely flooded and the roadway has been severely damaged due a burst water mains.

The council, along with gardaí, has been in Farranfore for a number of hours at this stage.

Diversions are in place, which include travelling through Firies/Ballyfinnane for Tralee and Currans/Currow for Killarney.

It’s expected the road will be down to one lane for several hours, so it’s best to avoid Farranfore or else expect significant delays.
