The community in Cahersiveen have vowed to come together to fight plans to move 75 Ukrainians who are living, working and attending school, to new locations within days.
There is widespread anger and upset across the town this week that a significant number of the Ukrainian community living at the Skellig Star Accommodation Centre are to be moved.
Letters have been received by the 75 Ukrainians that they are to be moved to new accommodation on May 2nd to new accommodation.
Some will be moved to a new accommodation in the town but others are being moved to Tralee to the Comfort Inn on Pembroke Street.
At least five of those who have received letters are working in Skellig Chocolate Factory and others in locations in the town while some are also finishing educational courses in the O’Connell Centre in the town.
The community are pleading with Integration Minister Roderic O’Gorman and Kerry’s own Minister Norma Foley to intervene and halt the decision
Fianna Fáil Councillor Norma Moriarty said the community is "distraught" over the move.
"The Ukrainians are settled here and are so happy,” she said.
"There is a real sense of injustice here. These people have good lives which they had to abandon and come here because of the war and now they are being uprooted again.”
Children are being moved from the local primary school along with secondary school students.
In one case a family is being split up with some of the family moving and others not.
