TRALEE is well on the way to achieving the goal of being the first town in Ireland to roll-out the Ask For Angela Campaign to an entire town and promote a safer night out in Kerry’s capital.

Twenty pubs have now signed-up to the initiative since it was launched on Friday 6th April and each premises has provided training to staff to help anyone who may need to Ask For Angela.

When a customer uses the code-phrase ‘Ask For Angela’, the staff in Tralee’s pubs will know that something is not right and will then help the customer by discretely removing them from the situation.

The Managing Consultant to Tralee Chamber Alliance, Ken Tobin, said: “The owners and managers of licenced premises in Tralee have now committed to train their staff and to place Ask For Angela posters throughout their bars to raise awareness of the campaign among their customers. A total of 20 bars, covering all of Tralee’s streets, are now on board in the interest of public safety and enhancing the fact that Tralee has a safe, vibrant and well-managed Night Time Economy. Thousands of people have watched the information video on Facebook and the coverage from all local media outlets have played a major role in raising awareness of the Ask For Angela initiative.”
