THE Mayor of Tralee, Cllr Norma Foley has warmly welcomed the announcement that Tralee is the national winner of the Bank of Ireland Enterprise Town Awards for 2017.

Mayor Foley was among those present at the announcement in Tullamore last night.

Tralee won the top award after earlier taking the ‘Best Large Enterprise Town in Ireland’ and the ‘Best Large Regional Town Award for Munster’ titles. Listowel was runner-up in the Munster Small Enterprise Town category.

“This is tremendous news for Tralee and is testament to the enormous hard work of local groups and volunteers who wowed the judges during their visit to Tralee last month.

“The award recognises the wonderful enterprising spirit which exists in Tralee and proves that is a great place in which to work and live,” she said.

“I want to pay tribute to the staff of the Tralee Municipal District and local organisations and businesses for their input and enthusiasm. I would also like to thank our Chief Executive, Moira Murrell for nominating Tralee for the award and pay tribute to the leadership of Kerry County Council in achieving this honour.”

“Coming as it does just weeks after Tralee retained its Gold Medal in the national Tidy Towns awards and following the awarding of the Purple Flag for the town, this is another well-deserved honour for our wonderful town,” the mayor added.
