A Kerry County Councillor believes the 9% tourism VAT rate should be continued indefinitely.

This reduced VAT rate was introduced by the Government in response to the challenges posed by COVID-19.

Cllr Michael Cahill feels the return to the 13.5% VAT rate would be counterproductive.

The Fianna Fáil councillor says our tourism industry is in a very volatile market, adding the next six to 12 months will be extremely difficult for many businesses.

He says if a minority are price gouging, they should be penalised while the majority should be supported.
