Latest: Transport Infrastructure Ireland have 'no official policy' on fairies

Update 11am: Transport Infrastructure Ireland say they have no official policy on fairies.

It comes after Kerry TD Danny Healy-Rae claimed 'The Little People' are interfering with roads.

He says fairy forts in the area are causing a dip on the main Killarney to Cork route to mysteriously re-appear.

Transport Infrastructure Ireland, a state agency responsible for national road and public transport infrastructure, say they do not have a fairy policy, but a spokesperson said it is always wise to wish 'The Little People' the best.

Danny Healy Rae's daughter, Maura, has told a meeting of Killarney Municipal District Council that her father is convinced that mythical creatures are interfering with the main route between Killarney and Cork.

Danny Healy Rae is no stranger to controversy since being elected last year.

In August he said the biblical story of Noah's Ark supports the claim that climate change does not exist.

He also compared eating a big meal and getting behind the wheel to drink driving.
