Cllr Asks Tralee People To Go Green This St Patrick’s Day

Cllr Johnnie Wall.

THE Council has been asked to liaise with business owners and the people of  Tralee to go green this St Patrick’s Day in the absence of the traditional parade which can’t go ahead for the second year in a row due to COVID restrictions.

Cllr Johnnie Wall had a motion before the online meeting of Tralee Municipal District this morning that, to make St Patricks Day seem somewhat normal, the Council would request the traders/people of Tralee to go green and to ‘colour’ the County Buildings, the water fountain, St John’s Spire and anything else that can look green.

He said people in the housing estates should put out green flags, shopfronts should go green to give people a lift and he also suggested a ‘virtual tour of the town’ to show off people’s efforts.

In reply, Tralee Municipal District said that, similar to previous years, it intends to light up in green key iconic buildings in the town centre.

Mayor of Tralee, Terry O’Brien, said he had spoken to Tralee MD officer Jean Foley and Tralee MD Manager Michael Scannell about the matter and they are coming up with plans to mark St Patricks Day.
