TRANSITION Year students of Presentation Secondary School have been doing their bit to brighten up the town centre and bring Christmas cheer to shoppers.

The Mayor of Tralee, Cllr. Terry O Brien invited them to participate in an initiative in the lead up to the Christmas period where they brightened up a local shopfront.

The 4B TY art class with the help of their Art teacher Mr. O’Sullivan are designing and decorating a Christmas-themed vacant shop front on Castle Street. ┬áThe project will be completed over two weeks.

The project will contribute to the enhancement of the aesthetics and character of vacant buildings in the town centre and put a smile on people passing by. Scroll down for photos…

    Well, they must have been spoilt for choice with the numbers of vacant shopfronts in Tralee town.

    Between the backward business owners who could not be bothered Sunday or late night openings and the clowns running the show for themselves on the local authority side, I am sure there will be even more choice in the coming years!

    Tralee town centre peaked in 1990, there was even a booming nightlife back then!
