Kerry County Council is to carry out repair works to the existing coastal defences at Rossbeigh early this year.

During 2018, the local authority repaired the sea wall at The Kerries, Tralee which was damaged in Storm Eleanor.

Coastal Flood and Erosion Risk Management studies were also carried out from Ballyheigue to Brandon Point and in Castlemaine Harbour.

The council also carried out detailed design for coastal defence works at Kilfenora, Fenit.
