THE ladies who will vie for the Kerry Rose 2018 title next month met up for the first time at The Rose Hotel on Sunday.

The Kerry Rose Centre held an information session and 21 of the anticipated 25 contestants got to know each other and received some advice from the current Kerry Rose, Breda O’Mahony.

The ladies have a fun few weeks ahead of them with a night at the dogs and a tour of Kerry on the cards, before the big selection night on May 26 at the Ballyroe Heights Hotel. Scroll down for photos of the contestants…
