A study is to be carried out on the impact on biodiversity following the fires in Killarney National Park.
The National Parks and Wildlife Service has published a €300,000 tender seeking applications to carry out the study.
The comprehensive survey will focus on lands burned over the past 40 years and in particular the fire last April which involved 2,000 hectares.
Gardaí said the cause of the recent fire seemed to be accidential in nature rather than deliberate for the purpose of clearing vegetation.
The closing date for applications for the two-year contract is August 30th at 12 noon.
