Meet the Roses at the races
SUMMER must be here because the Roses are starting to bloom and you can see for yourself at Cork Racecourse Mallow this Friday.
Friday will see the first public appearance, at the races, of this year's Cork Rose entrants - and this year there's a bumper crop - to enjoy what promises to be a great evenings entertainment at Mallow Races.
They will also visit Curraheen Park Greyhound Stadium and be treated to a whistle stop tour of the county, when they are taken on a Cork Rose Tour by coach on Saturday, June 7.
The 2014 Cork Rose selection takes place on June 13 & 14 at the Moran Silersprings Hotel. However, they first have a major round of social activities and events before the selection weekend.
