This afternoon.

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.

Above from left: Abu Dhabi Rose Karen Cashman, San Francisco Rose Brooklynn Quinn, Antrim Rose Orlagh McClinton, Longford Rose Marie Brady, Galway Rose Orla McDaid, Melbourne Rose Jordan Balfry and Limerick Rose Sinead Flanagan.
