Danny Healy Rae Blames Killarney Road Conditions On Fairies

"There are numerous fairy forts in that area", he said yesterday.

A Kerry TD is blaming the poor road conditions in Killarney on fairies.

"I don't know, but he's convinced they're there", she stated.

Independent lawmaker says there's 'something in these places you shouldn't touch'. "Anyone that tampered with them back over the years paid a high price and had bad luck".

"Can I just say to you, and many people will agree with me, if you actually eat too much and get in behind the wheel of a vehicle, you are a danger on the road because you are liable to fall asleep after eating a big meal", Healy-Rae said in a Oireachtas Transport Committee debate.

"I have a machine standing in the yard right now".

A dip in the road has re-emerged despite fix works being carried there, and the Kerry TD has confirmed to The Irish Times that he believes it's linked to the presence of fairy forts.

Kerry County Council has told the paper that the issues are because of "a deeper underlying geotechnical problem". Dips in the road have been repaired but the problems reappeared. In a formal motion on the cause of the dip, Healy-Rae a local councillor at the time, asked: "Is it fairies at work?"

Danny Healy-Rae's daughter has told a meeting of Killarney Municipal District Council that her father is convinced mythical creatures are interfering with the main route between Killarney and Cork.

In traditional Irish folklore, disturbing places associated with fairies is thought to bring bad luck or a fairy curse.

"That is what is responsible for the dip in the N22 which has occurred again, despite the council spending around €40,000 to fix it", he said, adding that it needed to be addressed before a driver came across it suddenly and lost control.
