The Lord Mayor of Dublin, Tom Brabazon, is urging people all over the city to support a call to fly the Irish flag in support of frontline workers on International Workers Day, which takes place today.
The call was made by The Thomas F. Meagher foundation, which promotes pride in the Tricolour.
“Like every other Dubliner I am extremely proud of the work being done by frontline workers during this pandemic,” said the Lord Mayor. “What better way to show our thanks than to proudly display the Tricolour, our national flag and symbol of what it means to be Irish. Thank you to all workers, especially those in the health, public, and retail sectors.”
To mark International Workers Day, Dublin City Council is lighting City Hall and the Mansion House red.
“I would also like to pay tribute to all the staff in Dublin City Council who are keeping the city running during this time. Everyone is playing their part but in particular I would like to mention Dublin Fire Brigade and the Dublin Region Homeless Executive for the great work they are doing,” added the Lord Mayor.
