Last night saw the Leitrim Rose Saoirse Gibbons take to the stage, entertaining the crowd with a song and her passion for the Irish language.

The festival returned for the first time this year having been postponed over the last two years due to the pandemic.

Executive Chair of the Rose of Tralee and Roscommon native Anthony O'Gara says he's proud of what the event has become.

''It's like Christmas that comes round every year and it's renewed every year. And it's reflective of the people that are now Irish people between the ages of 18 and 30. You know whether they're living in Ireland or in Irish communities abroad and it expresses Irishness as it is today, always did, always will. I'm very proud to have it here in Tralee.''
