GSOC have confirmed that they have opened "a public interest investigation" into irregularities of voter registration in Kerry.

This comes after Kerry County Council, who are responsible for maintaining the electoral register, confirmed they have also written to Garda Commissioner Drew Harris, about the alleged electoral fraud in the county.

A complaint was made to Killarney Garda Station last week about the matter and Garda sources have confirmed that an investigation is underway.

The allegations centre around the addition of voters to the supplementary electoral register.

In order to be added to the supplementary register, voters have to present themselves to their local garda station.
