The 50th Anniversary Tour
Over the years, the Rovers favourite moments have been while they were together touring and performing their tunes which have become "anthems of revelry and joy among generation after generation of fans".

In order to encourage young Celtic musicians to “keep writing, keep the music coming”, The Irish Rovers underwrite The Maui Celtic Radio Show, a platform for established and emerging Celtic artists. The host, Hamish Burgess will be accompanying the Rovers on tour, in search of new music for the radio show.
