Roses involved in landmark initiative to encourage emigrants to come home

The 32 Rose of Tralee contestants are getting involved in a landmark initiative to encourage emigrants to come home. The Roses are teaming up with the GAA and ConnectIreland in the jobs project. RoseofTralee The Roses, who hail from all over the globe, are among the newest ambassadors for ConnectIreland. The group and the GAA have joined forces to encourage players and members all over the world to help attract expanding international companies to Ireland. Every fruitful tip-off or connection is rewarded with up to €1,500 per job finder’s fee. It’s hoped this will help create a future at home for existing and emigrant Gaelic Games players. Emigration has hit GAA clubs around the country hard. The 32 Roses are currently on a tour of Ireland before arriving in Tralee this weekend when they will take in local attractions such as Tralee Bay Wetlands Centre.
