There is still no access to abortion services for women in Kerry.

The HSE confirmed to the Mail on Sunday that women seeking an abortion in Kerry must travel outside the county to avail of services.

Abortion services commenced in Ireland over three years ago, after legislation was passed giving women the right to avail of them.
