Cllr O’Brien Wants Féile Na mBláth To Take Place In August Or September

Posted by


Féile na mBláth has been a great success for Tralee over the past number of years.

A TRALEE Municipal District councillor has expressed concern at the risk that the Tralee Town Park Festival Féile na mBláth could be cancelled for this year and proposes it be moved to August or September.

It was due to take place on the second weekend of June, but under the government’s five step plan to reopen the country, it will not be able to take place at that time.

Féile na mBláth, a joint-venture between Kerry County Council’s Tralee Municipal District and Tralee Chamber Alliance, takes place every year in Tralee Town Park featuring a wide range of family entertainment.

Cllr O’Brien said; “Tralee and Kerry have already suffered over and above at the hands of the current COVID19 crisis, we have seen many of our friends and family members lose their jobs with no idea of when they will get them back. Having already lost The Rose of Tralee Festival I proposed to the municipal council that they should consider moving Féile na mBláth to the weekend that was reserved for the Rose.

“Running from late August to replace the festival or early September to ensure further safety Féile na mBláth would be one of the first festivals to take place following the implementation of the final stage of the Reopening Ireland plan. This family friendly festival would give locals something to look forward to and hopefully being to open up our hospitality sector once more.”
