Rose Hopefuls Take A Tour Of Kerry

Posted by

IF you were out and about in the county on Saturday, chances are, you were presented with a bunch of Roses.

The Kerry Rose contestants went on a day-long tour of the county to promote the upcoming selection which takes place on May 23 in the Ballyroe Heights Hotel.

They gathered at the hotel before heading into Tralee to visit Garvey’s Supervalu, the Town Park and the County Museum. Castleisland was the next stop for a look at the fashions in Hannon’s Boutique before embarking for Killarney.

While there, they took in the views at Muckross House, a walkabout in the town centre and off then to Sammy’s Bar and Restaurant in Inch.

The wild west beckoned with a trip to Dingle Oceanworld and a reception in Adams Bar before returning to the vale of Tralee for a spot of bowling in Bowling Buddies.

It was good training for them, because if you want to become a Rose, stamina and endurance will be needed for all these social occasions!
