Proposal to rename part of Tralee town withdrawn

Christie Hennessy6A proposal to rename part of Tralee town centre after the late singer Christie Hennessy has been withdrawn. Cllr Sam Locke had proposed that Abbey Court be named Abbey Court Christie Hennessy Place. Council management said to rename an area would involve a plebiscite or a vote of those affected by the change. Councillors decided that dedicating the area to Christie Hennessy instead would be a better course of action. A plaque is also to be erected to mark the dedication. A statue of the singer is already in the area.
