All the international media attention that New Ross has enjoyed throughout the course of the JFK50 celebrations looks set to continue this week as the New Ross Piano festival gets into full swing.
As well as having performers coming from all over the world, the festival will also welcome music journalists from France and Germany this year with the hope of attracting more visitors from the continent. The Festival also featured on the Ryanair Inflight Magazine this month as the place that visitors should go for a unique musical experience.
Other tourist attractions such as the Emigrant Trail, the Ros Tapestry and The Dunbrody Visitors Centre look set to benefit from the extra visitors that the festival will bring to the town.
