HUNDREDS took to the streets of Tralee for an anti-water charges protest yesterday.
After the huge numbers marched in Dublin last weekend, the local protest was organised by Right2Water Kerry and they came from all over the county to again voice their opposition to Irish Water.
The march was organised to mark the arrival of the first bills from Irish Water which will be issued from April 1.
Organisers estimate a crowd of around 400 made the march from the Horan Centre to The Square where various speakers encouraged people not to pay the bills.
Michael O’Gorman of Right2Water Kerry said everyone should boycott the bills and Irish Water.
“Do not engage with Irish Water in any sense,” he told the crowd in The Square. “If they phone you, ignore them. If they write letters to you, ignore them. Come Christmas, if we all ignore Irish Water, they’ll be dead and gone,” continued Mr O’Gorman.
