Thou shalt not pass!

The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

A RARE fall of snow over the week­end saw peo­ple head­ing up the Conor Pass to make snow­men and gaze at the white won­der. But by Mon­day the fun was over when the road was of­fi­cially closed.

The ‘road closed’ signs re­mained in place on Tues­day, forc­ing driv­ers from ‘Be­low the Hill ‘to take the not very at­trac­tive op­tion of trav­el­ling to Din­gle via Camp. How­ever, some veter­ans of the moun­tain road ig­nored the warn­ing signs and crossed the hill any­way, leav­ing tyre tracks as ev­i­dence of their pas­sage.

The Conor Pass was slippy but nav­i­ga­ble on Sun­day when this pic­ture was taken but the ‘road closed’ signs were out on Mon­day.
