, meaning "strand of the Lee (river)") is the county town of County Kerry in the south-west of Ireland.
The town is on the northern side of the neck of the Dingle Peninsula, and is the largest town in County Kerry.
The medieval town was burnt in 1580 in retribution for the Desmond Rebellions against Elizabeth I.
Sir Edward was the first of the Dennys to settle in Tralee; the Dennys did not occupy the castle of the Earls of Desmond until 1627.
Sir Edward's son was Arthur Denny, in whose lifetime the town's charter was granted by King James, containing the right to elect two members of parliament. He died in 1646, before the triumph of Oliver Cromwell over affairs in England and Ireland.
The town's population including suburbs was 23,693 as of the 2011 Situated at the confluence of some small rivers and adjacent to marshy ground at the head of Tralee Bay, Tralee is located at the base of a very ancient roadway that heads south over the Slieve Mish Mountains.
On this old track is located a large boulder sometimes called Scotia's Grave, reputedly the burial place of an Egyptian Pharaoh's daughter.

Radio Kerry - Your Voice in The Kingdom Radio Kerry is the local radio station for County Kerry. The station headquarters are in Tralee, the county town of Kerry, with additional studios in Killarney and Cahersiveen. The basic problem is that our Councillors lack technical expertise, so have to rely on management personnel who cover their backs by delegating to commercial engineers who just want to make a profit. The Council is ultimately responsible, but it lacks expertise so doesn't know how to act properly.
