In Chinese culture it is tradition to clean the dust away to welcome in new things. Ken Tobin, CE of Tralee Chamber Alliance said; “Going forward we want to ensure that all events held in Tralee have a positive impact on our environment, and are as sustainable as possible, so each event we are involved with will have a clean-up day as part of their plan”.
