Stephen’s Green, Dublin 2.
An undeniably lovely bunch of seven ‘Roses from Ireland and ‘abroad’ competing in the 2019 Rose of Tralee gathered for a pre-festival photo shoot organised by lead sponsor Tipperary Water.
The participants will also take part in the traditional ‘running of the Daithi’ at Montrose, Dublin 4 at an unspecified date later this month.
