Still Time To Enter To Be A Rosebud During Festival

Posted by


THE deadline to be Rose Buds at this year’s Rose of Tralee International Festival has crept up on some people, but there’s still time for your daughter, sister, niece, granddaughter, friend or neighbour to apply.

Fifty children from Kerry and beyond will be chosen through the direct application process, while a further 15 Rose Bud places will be allocated through various Rose of Tralee and associated sponsor promotions.

The deadline is being extended to the end of May. It’s for girls aged 6 to 10. Simply visit or call into the Festival Office on Denny Street to pick up an entry form.

It’s €25 to enter with €5 from each entry being donated to Barretstown Camp for children recovering from cancer.

Successful applicants will be required to make a €50 contribution to cover participation costs during the festival.

Rose Buds were first introduced to the Rose of Tralee International Festival when the event celebrated 50 years in 2009 and since then 371 children have made life-long friends while enjoying a memorable experience.
