Kerry County Council to Showcase Services on ‘Your Council Day’

There’ll be no stopping Kerry County Council tomorrow, Thursday July 1st. as it showcases its ‘Your Council Day’ as part of a county by county, nationwide initiative.

The vital work of Kerry County Council employees and the many services provided by the local authority will be highlighted as part of the nationwide online ‘Your Council Day’ initiative on this Thursday, 1 July.

Across social media and using the hashtags #YourCouncilDay and #DoLásaChomhairle, the initiative will showcase the work of Kerry County Council staff who make a difference to the lives of the people in their community and particularly the work that has been done during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Behind the Scenes

Local authorities will also provide a ‘behind the scenes’ look at a typical day in the council and highlight many of the services councils and their employees provide.

The day will also feature the launch of a new website called: which will provide details of job opportunities in the local government sector across the country.

It will be a central hub of information about local authority careers, recruitment processes and employment benefits.

Council’s Key Role  

The newly elected Cathaoirleach of Kerry County Council, Cllr Jimmy Moloney said that Kerry County Council is playing a key role in the recovery of our county post-COVID.

“From supporting businesses to getting back on their feet by administering enterprise grants and facilitating outdoor dining, to providing safe spaces like parks and pedestrianised zones for people to enjoy, Kerry County Council has risen to the challenge of leading the local response to this phase of the pandemic.”

“Our staff have been at the heart of that response and on ‘Your Council Day’ we pay tribute to the innovative ways they serve their community.

“I would encourage social media users to engage with us online on Thursday,” said Cllr Moloney.
