Efforts are being made to organise a music festival in Tramore on the final Sunday in July, a smaller version of Tra Fest which was scuppered this year when the main sponsors pulled out.

If it proceeds – financial backing is being sought by musician Owen Kavanagh who is behind the venture – it will be confined to Strand St., with a selection of bands performing through the day and early night.

That was disclosed on Tuesday night by Kevin O’Sullivan of Alpha IT Solutions when he addressed Tramore Town Council on his recently launched tourism promotion venture Discover Tramore (website discovertramore.ie).


He also said that the Worlds Ocean Festival was likely to return next year.

He emphasised that Discover Tramore was not a commercial enterprise but simply another means of promoting the town and its attractions to potential tourists and he invited the Council and anybody else who wished to avail of his website to publicise the town and what it had to offer as a tourist attraction.


He was complimented on his presentation – and his initiative – by Town Manager Brian White who also advised him to talk with the reformed Tramore Tourism, the Manager suggesting that they might be able to work together towards a common end.
