Kilkenny to light up in memory of our road tragedy victims
Four people have lost their lives on our local far this year – and this weekend Kilkenny will light up to remember them.
Kilkenny’s County Hall and City Hall will be lit up to mark the memory of all those that have passed away on local roads over the years.
Kilkenny Council is joining the ‘light up for road safety’ campaign as part of this year’s ‘World Remembrance Day for Road Traffic Victims’, this Sunday, November 15.
The local authority has urged members of the public to involved and ‘light up’ or ‘shine a light’ to remember crash victims, survivors, their families and those on the frontline who respond to road traffic accidents.
Residents, businesses and organisations across Kilkenny are being encouraged to light up their building for road safety as part of this national campaign between 7pm and 8pm this Sunday.
Speaking about the event, Superintendent Derek Hughes of Kilkenny Garda Station said: “Road traffic fatalities have a profound and lasting impact on families, especially at this time of year.
“On this World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims we think especially about all victims and families of road traffic fatalities, which must be a difficult time for all.”
