Overseas band to perform at Rose of Tralee International Festival

REPRO FREE 30.7.18 – The 2018 Rose of Tralee Street Entertainment alone will cost €355,000 to present a line-up of family-friendly, FREE and affordable fun from 17 to 21 August. A significant increase in financial support is required and Festival organisers are asking local businesses to make a contribution, with every Euro received set to be invested directly into staging so many events on Tralee’s streets.
