There is to be no prosecution following an investigation into possible breaches of Covid-19 health regulations in the pub owned by Independent TD Danny Healy-Rae in Kilgarvan last summer.

An investigation file was sent to the Director of Public Prosecution who has since directed no prosecution in the matter, the Garda Press Office has confirmed.

Videos and still images appeared on social media last summer relating to a crowd gathered indoors without masks or social distancing allegedly from a family wedding in July and in the aftermath of the annual Kilgarvan Fair in early August.

Asked at the time about one of the videos which were posted on the Radio Kerry site, Danny Healy-Rae's son Johnny said the family was aware of it.

He said he had not seen it himself and the family would not be making any comment for now.

"We are looking at the circumstances and may have a comment later".

Speaking today, Johnny Healy-Rae said the family will not be making any comment on the direction of the DPP to gardaí.
