No significant damage caused in Kerry following Storm Ellen

Kerry County Council hasn’t received any reports of significant damage following Storm Ellen overnight.

A status orange wind warning was in place for Kerry and has since been lifted; council crews reported a relatively quiet night.

Four trees were reported down in Glenflesk and attended to, while a manhole cover lifted in Ballybunion.

Council crews are advising there will be delays on the N72 as a tree is down in Fossa, just before Killarney town.

There’s also a tree down in Fossa near the Castlerosse Park Resort in Killarney, council staff are clearing this.

There are also reports of spot flooding in a number of areas including Moll’s Gap.

A spokesperson for the council says it appears Kerry escaped the worst of last night’s weather.

Kerry County Council crews will work to remove any debris this morning.

64 customers are without power in Rathmore; the power isn’t expected to be restored here until 11pm.

Meanwhile, Kerry Airport says this morning’s 7.30 flight to Dublin was cancelled yesterday due to the weather warning.

However, it expects all other flights to operate as normal today.
