It's that time of year again. The Whole Lotta Rosaleen music festival is back once more. Set up by the Talbot Family, in memory of their mother Rosaleen, who sadly passed away from a sudden illness in 2012, this is a popular event in Kill.

“Rosaleen had a great passion for music and passed this interest on to her children and throughout the community,” said a spokesperson for the Talbot family.

“Each year we hold this event in her memory and to raise money for charity. This year our charity is Saplings Special School for children with autism and complex needs, in Kill. The event will take place on Saturday, August 11, in The Old House beer garden from 1pm till late.”
