Storm at Rossbeigh beach.

Kerry County Council estimates it will cost at least €20m to repair recent damage and to carry out long-term protection work along its 684km of coastline.

A sum of €1.55m is being sought for the blue-flag Rossbeigh Beach, but local Independent councillor Michael Cahill yesterday said a further €3m was needed to protect a cliff road leading to several houses overlooking the beach.

“Some emergency works have just been carried out on the beach side of this road, parts of which have collapsed in the past, and it is under serious threat following the recent storms and high tides.

“The road has been further undermined and local people believe it will collapse again if urgent protection work is not done.’’

It was also learned that some householders in the Cromane area are considering legal action against the county council, Office of Public Works, and Department of the Marine for allegedly not doing sufficient work to protect their recently flooded homes.

Damage to the promenade in the South Kerry village of Waterville is also being highlighted and the local tidy towns committee is seeking €400,000 to repair a section of the promenade which collapsed in the bad weather.

A car park washed away beside the beach at Kells must also be replaced.
