A TRALEE councillor is calling on the public to contact the gardaí when they see anti-social behaviour at the Lee Walkway.

Cllr Terry O’Brien brought up the issue at the Tralee Municipal District meeting of councillors on Monday at Kerry County Council, after he received a number of complaints from people on the doorsteps when out canvassing for the local elections.

“We have a fabulous river walk but we have a problem with anti-social behaviour there. All of us have heard about it on the doorstep. It’s a fabulous amenity but people are afraid to go down there, because there’s an element that have taken it over,” he said. He called on people to call the gardaí immediately if they see any anti-social behaviour.

Cllr Sam Locke said he believed there was drug-dealing going on at the walkway and wanted action from the garda drugs squad. He said the amenity should be protected and people should feel safe when using it.
