Meet the 65 Roses of Tralee 2015

Meet the full complement of Roses for the 2015 Rose of Tralee International Festival.

The Rose of Tralee is fast approaching but what you may not know is that not every Rose makes it as far as the Dome.

A total of 65 Roses are chosen from around the world and only 32 make it to the final two nights of the Festival.

Meet the full worldwide compliment of 65 Roses above and see what they had to offer to be named their local Rose.

Flick through the gallery to learn more about each girl.

@IndoEnts will be live tweeting this weekend from Tralee where the Roses have a number of engagements before the big night.
