Rose Of Tralee

She was lovely and fair as the rose of the summer, Yet ’twas not her beauty alone that won me. Oh no, ’twas the truth in her eyes ever dawning That made me love Mary, the Rose of Tralee.

 

Held every August (Lunasa) and still one of Ireland’s most popular festivals, connecting the global Irish community since 1959.

Young women of Irish ancestry from all over the world don their best frocks, practice their party pieces, pledge their lives to saving humanity and are ably escorted in the process by some of the country’s most eligible bachelors, all in the name of good clean fun and be remembered for being what Fr Ted might describe as the lovely girls they all are.

 

The dome remains at the nerve centre of a week’s partying amid street entertainment, carnival, live concerts, theatre, circus, markets, funfair and fireworks.
