CAVAN Rose Laura Galligan is rallying her supporters to follow her to Portlaoise, Co Laois for the Rose of Tralee Regional Festival from May 29 to June 1.It’s a major tourism event on the Irish Festivals calendar attracting 60 Roses, their families, friends and festival-goers from Ireland and around the world.

 

Rose of Tralee Host Dáithí Ó Sé will interview each of the 60 Roses over three nights before two Judging Panels select 23 Roses to go forward to the International Festival in Tralee next August.

The 2014 Cavan Rose, Laura Galligan, said: “I have received good wishes and congratulations from so many people. I’m really looking forward to meeting all of the other Roses and taking all I can out of what is going to be an amazing experience in Portlaoise.”

 

Each of the 60 Roses has her own story to tell, yet they are connected by their Irish heritage and they are all outstanding ambassadors who exemplify the true spirit of modern young Irish women.

Laois has been home to the Regional Finals of the Rose of Tralee since 2008 thanks mainly to the support of Laois County Council, Laois Tourism and the local hotels and business community.

 

Throughout the June Bank Holiday weekend in Laois, the Roses will take part in three selection nights at the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel, enjoy an Irish music evening at the Maldron Hotel Portlaoise as well as a vintage Car Parade, funfair, street disco and a visit to the magnificent Castle Durrow.

Roses representing 29 counties in Ireland, 13 regions in the United States of America, Scotland and eight major cities in England, Melbourne, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Oman, Canada, Luxembourg and Germany will all take part in the Regional Festival.

 

23 Roses will go forward to the Rose of Tralee International Festival where they will be joined in August by Roses from Kerry, Cork, Dublin, Sydney, New Zealand, Darwin, Perth, Queensland and South Australia. This year’s extended Rose of Tralee International Festival will take place from 15 to 19 August.
