“It’s an incredible experience,” said Grainne Fox, former Longford Rose and current chairperson of the Longford Rose of Tralee committee. “Being a part of the Longford Rose contest introduces you to new friends and helps develop your self confidence. I would really recommend it.”

Alongside contestants the Longford Rose of Tralee committee is also looking for escorts. These positions are open to all males between 21 and 30 years (inclusive) and application forms can be downloaded at the Rose of Tralee website.

“The official launch of the Longford Rose of Tralee will take place on Friday March 25 and it will be the first opportunity for the girls to meet one another and each other’s families,” said Grainne speaking to the Leader recently.

The selection night takes place on Saturday April 16 in the Longford Arms Hotel.

On that date the girls will be treated to hair styling and make up from Hair Square, followed by interviews with the judges and an introduction to MC Benny O’Brien. That night, the Longford Rose will be chosen and prizes will be awarded including Newbridge Silverware.
