THREE young siblings will be joined by the public, members of the business community and new Kerry Rose Sally Ann Leahy tomorrow (Friday) for the next Tralee Bay Clean up.

Nine year old twins Evan and Alex and their 12 year-old brother Dylan Nealon from Lixnaw have been spearheading a campaign for the past number of months now to remove plastic from the Tralee canal and bay, as well as the protection of wildlife and the environment.

The boys efforts were recognised when they won the Overall Super Junior Award the ECO UNESCO Young Environmentalists Awards at the National Convention Centre in Dublin last month and they have been travelling around to local schools explaining why they are making the effort to clean-up the canal.

A number of businesses in town are coming on board to help the boys, with everyone meeting at the Aqua Dome car park at 2pm on this Friday.  Staff at Sigmar Recruitment in Monavalley will join them, as well as employees from the AquaDome and many others.

Ballyseedy in the Tralee Bay Wetlands have offered to supply free tea/coffee and biscuits for all volunteers coming to the clean up, while new Kerry Rose Sally Ann Leahy will also be there.

But they need as many members of the public and staff from local businesses as possible to come along and help them. Equipment will be supplied, so all they need are the bodies to help fill those bags with rubbish.
