Plans For Plaque At Location Where Rose Festival Was Founded

Posted by


THE Tralee Municipal District Operations Department has approved a plan to mark the location where the Rose of Tralee festival was founded.

Cllr Norma Foley put forward a motion at the Tralee MD meeting on Monday that, in advance of the 60th anniversary of the festival next August, a plaque should be erected at the old Harty’s Bar on Castle Street (now Baily’s Corner).

This is to be done in co-operation with the building’s owners, the Rose of Tralee International Festival and all interested parties.

Cllr Foley welcomed the support of the Council and said she hoped this would be just one of a number of events to mark a milestone year in the Festival’s history.
