The Rose of Tralee Festival got underway last night with the glamorous Rose Ball. More than 1,300 people attended the event at the Festvial Dome. In his opening address, managing director of the Festival Anthony O’Gara said Tralee should use the event as an opportunity to show the country what a wonderful town it is. 50 roses from across the world will battle it out for the title at this year’s Festival which is marking half a century in existence. The televised rose selection will take place next Tuesday and Wednesday with the 51st Rose of Tralee being announced on Wednesday night.
