Over 1,000 people attended the first of two qualifying selection nights for the Rose of Tralee International Festival.
32 of the 65 Roses were interviewed by RTE presenter Dáithí Ó’Sé in front of the packed audience in the Dome last night.
Another 32 Roses will take to the stage in the Dome tonight for the second qualifying selection night.
Each Rose will find out on Sunday if she has been chosen to appear on the televised selections on Monday or Tuesday.
The Luxembourg Rose, Sile Reidy from Ballymacelligott, says she enjoyed representing her adopted home in front of family and friends from all over the world.
