The works, which involved emergency repairs to a section of the retaining wall and road, have now been completed three days ahead of schedule.

The road will reopen to traffic from 7 o’clock this evening.

Kerry County Council has acknowledged the inconvenience caused to local businesses and the efficiency of the contractor, Cumnor Construction Ltd, in completing the works early.
