Tralee retains its Purple Flag status for 2019
TRALEE has successfully retained its Purple Flag status for another year.
The Purple Flag programme is a scheme much like Blue Flags for beaches that recognises towns and cities which offer visitors a quality, safe night out.
Following an intensive town wide campaign –led by Tralee Chamber Alliance and Kerry County Council with assistance from the local VFI and the Gardaí and other community groups –Tralee was granted Purple Flag status in September 2017
The concerted effort – which incvolved months of work – was led by the specially created Tralee Purple Flag team headed up by David Scott.
The flag was officially presented to Tralee last November and it now flies proudly over the Tralee Municipal District council’s headquarters at Princes Street.
Purple Flag judges returned to Tralee in recent weeks to carry out a follow up assessment and based on their findings they have decided to grant the town Purple Flag status for another year.
The chamber and council were informed of the judge’s decision on Friday and the judges latest report on the town is due to be published in the coming weeks.
