Cllr Thomas McEllistrim told yesterday’s meeting of Tralee Municipal District that he was seeking this on population grounds and said having Tralee become a city would be beneficial to the town’s economy. Cllr McEllistrim said legislation would need to be passed to allow for the designation and he would work on this should he secure a Seanad seat.
