Around 46% of Kerry is either in a Special Area of Conservation or Special Protection Area.

Sinn Féin councillor Deirdre Ferris says there is a lack of knowledge around the status and significance of such areas.

Cllr Ferris called on Kerry County Council to erect a series of educational notice boards at key locations; the council said it will discuss the matter with the National Parks and Wildlife Service which has responsibility for such areas.
