Sinn Fein councillors Deirdre Ferris and Cathal Foley have called on Kerry County Council to facilitate Ukrainian refugees coming to Kerry.

At this week’s Tralee Municipal District meeting, Cllr Ferris asked the council to liaise with Red Cross, the HSE and the Department of Education to ensure a full complement of wraparound services are in place for incoming refugees.

Tralee MD manager Michael Scannell said Kerry will play its part in a national co-ordinated response.
