Killarney to celebrate its Purple Flag this weekend

Killarney will celebrate its role in the Purple Flag programme this weekend.

The town retained its Purple Flag in September; it recognises areas for promoting the safety and wellbeing of visitors and residents between 5pm and 5am.

A celebration will take place in the town this weekend and hotels, businesses and retailers are being urged to support.

They can do so by decorating their windows or having their staff dress in purple, by hosting purple-themed events or by hanging purple merchandise outside their venue.
