  1. Why does Tralee need a Mayor and what is the extra 12 grand for?
    Too many hangers on a wanna be’s in these Party’s. To run this Country which after all would equate to a medium size City, population wise in any other part of the World
    All that needed would be a City manager and his staff…Time to unload the bloodsuckers. get back to basics…
