Gardaí issue fines to Boy Racers in Molls Gap, Killarney, on May 1

Gardaí issue fines to Boy Racers in Molls Gap, Killarney, on  May 1, 2021.

Killarney and District Motor Club will, at last, be able to put distance between themselves and the Boy Racers that have tarnished the Rally of the Lakes for years. 

The rally has not run since 2019 as a result of the pandemic.

However, the Boy Racers still congregated in Killarney last weekend and continued their anti-social behaviour and dangerous driving.  

It serves as proof the rally is not responsible from bringing these idiots to Killarney. 

Following reports from local residents of cars gathering late at night, Gardaí from Killarney Roads Policing Unit, assisted by uniform Gardaí and a trained Garda Public Vehicle Inspector, set up an operation targeting drivers who congregate and drive dangerously on the roads. 

As part of the operation a number of checkpoints were established in the area. During the course of the operation Gardaí issued a number of fines for road traffic offences and for breaches of the Heath Act 1947. A number of cars have also been scheduled to attend Castleisland Garda Station for a full vehicle inspection for possible breaches of the Road Traffic Act.

Superintendent Flor Murphy said “Ensuring road safety is, and always will be, a key priority for An Garda Síochána. There a personal responsibility for everyone who gets behind the wheel of a car. I have said it before, anyone who is caught driving dangerously, particularly people who meet up with the sole aim of performing dangerous manoeuvres in cars on the roads, will be dealt with under the full weight of the law.”
