The gathering will be addressed by the principal response agencies, hear prayers from main churches and denominations in Kerry and will include the laying of a wreath in remembrance of those who lost their lives. It will conclude with a performance by the Siamsa Tíre choir.

Cllr Moloney said: ‘As we slowly emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is fitting that we take time to reflect and remember across the country this weekend. Here in Kerry, this is an opportunity to remember those who lost their lives in our county but also to remember those who led the response and showed such dedication and resilience at such a traumatic and challenging time.’

Denny Street will be closed to traffic from 9am on Sunday morning. Parking will be available at the car park opposite the Brandon Hotel. The ceremony will be broadcast live on Radio Kerry.
