A NUMBER of Kerry County Councillors will move motions at next Monday’s meeting of the council regarding support for Ukraine and ideas about how refugees can be helped.

Cllr John O’Donoghue from Killarney MD will ask the Council to examine the possibility of twinning the county with a similar region of Ukraine, and furthermore contact the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities calling on them to encourage such a move on a European Level, as this may be of great help to the besieged Ukrainian people with rebuilding their society when the conflict ends.
