Over 150 local sixth class pupils from a variety of different primary schools learned about positive mental health and fitness on Friday last.

The pupils, along with their teachers, gathered together for the annual KDYS Health and Well-being Day 2019, in the KDYS/eurÓg Youth Centre.

The atmosphere on Friday was vibrant and exciting, Tim O’Donoghue, CEO of the KDYS, said.

“The students engaged in various health and well-being focussed interactive workshops exploring topics such as positive mental health, physical health and fitness, positive lifestyle choices and social media awareness,” he said.

“This event is part of the KDYS commitment to supporting young people to make positive choices regarding their health and well-being, and was supported by the Kerry County Council’s Community Support Fund 2019.”

County Kerry is now bearing the full brunt of Storm Barra and the Kerry Severe Weather Coordination Team reminds everyone that a Status RED weather warning, the highest such warning, remains in place for Kerry until 9pm.

Kerry County Council is advising people to avoid the Ballycasheen area of Killarney

Due to the significant risk to life and property, members of the public should remain indoors and not travel for the rest of the evening. Everyone is advised to follow updates on weather warnings from Met Éireann as well as the local media and social media.

There are an increasing number of roads closed or blocked because of fallen trees, electricity poles and spot flooding. Council crews will respond to issues when it is safe to do so and with the assistance of other agencies where required.

The N71 road at the Suspension Bridge in Kenmare remains closed to traffic as does the N70 Tralee to Castlemaine Road at the hairpin bends. There are a significant number of local and regional and local roads blocked or partially blocked by fallen trees, electricity poles and debris in all parts of the county so travel should be avoided.

The Ballycasheen Road in Killarney and Main Street in Ballybunion (and the surrounding area) should be avoided due to concerns about potential falling debris.

The Council’s emergency contact number is 066 7183588 and it will be operational through this evening and tonight.

Fallen electricity wires/poles and power outages should be reported to ESB Networks on 1800 372 999.
