The loss of the Rose of Tralee for the second year running is set to cost Tralee's economy up to €15 million in lost revenue this summer.

Last year the world famous festival was called off for the first time in its 61 year history and on Monday organisers announced that due to the ongoing pandemic crisis they had no option but to cancel this year's event as well.
