There has been a further bog slide in the Stack Mountains.

Kerry County Council believes heavy rain overnight caused what is being described as a 'small slippage' of bog material.

It has once again forced the closure of a local road.

The slippage happened between two bridges, 'Harris' and 'Scanlon', on a tributary of the Smerlagh river.

The river's salmon fish stock was devastated by the recent bog slide when up to 25 acres of land slipped down the mountain.

Kerry County Council is currently on site.

The Council believes it is built-up embankments of material from the last bog slide that slipped today.
