The 2015 Rose contestants have arrived in Tralee where they will officially be welcomed this afternoon in Tralee Wetlands Centre.
The 32 contestants’ first duty this morning was to attend the official opening of the new Rose Walk in the Town Park. The Rose Walk links the Riverside Walk at Fels Point to the Rose Centre and is dedicated to the memory of the 2011 Washington Rose, Dorothy Henggeler, who passed away last year. Her parents Dick and Eibhlin, who purchased the Fels Point Hotel in Tralee, were there for the officially opening of the walk by the Mayor of Tralee Thomas McEllistrim. Kerry Rose Julett Culloty says she’s delighted to be back in her home county.
