Kerry girls are being invited to apply to become Rose Buds at 2017 Rose of Tralee International Festival.

Girls aged between 6 to 10 can apply, and each Rose Bud selected will be twinned with a Rose, take part in two parades, and attend a Rose Bud Party with the Roses during the festival.

50 children from Kerry and beyond will be chosen through the application process, while a further 15 places will be allocated through Rose of Tralee and sponsor promotions.

The deadline for applications is the 24th of May.
