Kerry County Council is urging people to drive with care, even on salted routes, as treacherous conditions are being reported on many of the county’s roads.

There’ve been several crashes in the greater Killarney area, as well as on the N21 Abbeyfeale-Castleisland Road, near the Captain’s Table.

Black ice has been reported in many parts, including Farmer's Bridge, in Glenflesk, at the County Bounds and on the R556 Dale road.
