CONGRATULATIONS to Nicola McEvoy, Luxembourg, lovely winner of the Rose of Tralee 2012…
Here’s wishing you a fantastic year ahead Nicola, and hope you don’t mind if we claim this as a Cork win as well. ;)
It’s that time of year again as the girls line up for the 2012 Rose of Tralee. Dáithí Ó Sé is back to host the TV finale on Tuesday 21st August, and Irish Rugby legend, Ronan O’Gara will be presenting the prizes to the winner. Yep, the two lads seem to have it sewn-up!
The festival gets bigger every year, and the line-up of events for 2012 is no exception. A street carnival with music gigs, theatre, food, crafts, parades and fireworks are all part of the entertainment, and the air display, back for it’s 3rd year, takes place on Sunday 19th August. The music schedule looks pretty diverse too, from Jedward! to The Saw Doctors and Aslan, and a good mix in-between.
There are 32 roses to choose from, in this the 53rd annual festival, and as usual it’s no easy task for the judges…
I like the Rose of Tralee; it’s quirky and unique to Ireland, brings people together and looks like great fun:
Long live the Rose of Tralee.
