A NUMBER of contestants for the Kerry Rose 2019 met up in The Rose Hotel on Monday to find out more about what the next few weeks has in store for them.

While there are 17 ladies confirmed for the selection night which takes place on Saturday, June 8, there’s still time to become a contestant.

Kerry Rose 2018 Celine O’Shea was present with the Kerry Rose Centre team to chat to the contestants and tell them what the next month has in store for them.

“Today, it’s lovely for them to meet the team here and for them to understand it’s a brilliant experience. It’s just lots of fun — there’s a night at the dog track, a tour of Kerry and the selection night with Dáithi is like a mini-Rose of Tralee. My favourite part is that night when your family and friends are all there cheering you on,” said Celine.

If anyone wants to enter the Kerry Rose selection go to the Rose of Tralee website (click here) and fill out the application. Here’s the 15 ladies who were at the information meeting on Monday. Scroll down for photos…
