Roses to take to Dome stage for first time tonight

REPRO FREE 30.7.18 – The 2018 Rose of Tralee Street Entertainment alone will cost €355,000 to present a line-up of family-friendly, FREE and affordable fun from 17 to 21 August. A significant increase in financial support is required and Festival organisers are asking local businesses to make a contribution, with every Euro received set to be invested directly into staging so many events on Tralee’s streets.

The Rose of Tralee contestants are spending the day in south Kerry.

The 57 women from all over the world are touring the award-winning Kells Bays and Gardens.

In May, Billy Alexander won a Silver Gilt Medal at the Chelsea Flower Show for his showcase of rare and exotic ferns grown at Kells.

This evening, the Roses will take to the stage in the Dome for the first time for the Celebration of Roses, which will be hosted by former Radio Kerry presenter Brian Hurley.
