This is a 3 Day Tour to The Rose of Tralee Festival

The Rose of Tralee International Festival which any woman with even remote Irish connections may enter has made Kerry’s capital town famous all over the world.  The wonderful love song “The Rose of Tralee” was written about the first Rose Mary O’ Connor and her sweetheart, a young soldier who went abroad to fight in India, he returned home to Tralee hoping to marry Mary only to see her coffin being carried to the local graveyard.  Ever since The Rose of Tralee has become Kerry’s best loved song.  Carlow’s Ollie Hennessy is musical Director of the Rose Festival for the past 23 years.  With the wonderful atmosphere surrounding the festival it is little wonder that people keep returning year after year.
