A BOOK of condolences has opened in the reception area in Kerry County Council, so the people of Tralee can express their sympathy at the deaths of six young Irish people in Berkeley yesterday.

The book opened after lunchtime on Wednesday and will continue to remain open during office hours (9am-5pm) for the rest of the week.

The tragedy at the Californian university town, where six students died and seven were injured when a balcony they were standing on collapsed, has seen an outpouring of grief throughout the country and the Council is flying the Irish flag at half mast today as a mark of respect.

Minister for the Diaspora, Kerry TD Jimmy Deenihan, is to travel to San Francisco tomorrow to meet the families of the dead and injured.
