Calls for restructuring of Rose Of Tralee festival.

A Tralee publican has called for the restructuring of the Rose Festival to be carefully examined before any predictions are made about its future. On Friday it was announced that a new group had been appointed to oversee the changes to the festival and to avoid liquidation. The group includes management consultant Anthony o’guy-ra and former chairman of the Jeanie Johnston Jim finucane. The primary focus of the new group is to find the money needed to keep the 45 year old festival going. Tralee publican Danny Leen says the restructuring will have to be a whole new start for the festival if it’s to work.
