Cork gearing up for 2019 Rose selection
There's never been a better time to apply to be the Cork Rose because, this year, the famous Rose of Tralee International Festival will celebrate 60 years since Alice O'Sullivan became the very first Rose Of Tralee.
There was great excitement at the The Clayton Hotel, Silversprings - hotel sponsor of the 2019 Cork Rose Selection - as the 2018 Cork Rose Erinn O' Connell launched the search for this year's Cork Rose.
According to Erinn, "the whole experience has been unforgettable - the opportunities that have arisen, the people I have met, the causes I have helped and the friends I have made, have made this the most rewarding experience you can imagine and I would encourage any girl to get involved."
This years Cork Rose Selection will take place on June 8/9 where all entrants will take to the stage over the two night selection.
There will not be any heats involved this year - each entrant will participate in all the events up to and including the selection weekend, with one announcement on the Saturday night where the lucky 2019 Cork Rose will receive a whole host of incredible prizes sponsored by local Cork businesses and beyond.
Anyone interested in entering this year can do so online at www.roseoftralee.ie/apply. Further information about the selection process is available by emailing email@example.com or call/text 0871474100.
