HEAVY rains caused a massive landslide on a cliff road overlooking one of the country's best-known beaches.

But the local council said it was not concerned that the slip road leading to Ladies' Beach in Ballybunion was in any danger of collapsing.

The latest slippage occurred on Sunday when part of the clay cliff face gave way and landed on the road. The damage has already been assessed by Kerry County Council – which did not see any reason to close off the road. A spokesman said the council would allow the earth to settle first before a further and more in-depth assessment is made.
