THE Rose of Tralee, Haley O’Sullivan, has been visiting the province to launch the search for the 2014 Antrim Rose.
She will arrive into Ireland from Texas at the weekend to commence a week-long tour of Ulster in a bid to find the next Rose of Tralee.
Haley O’Sullivan, who lives and works in Dallas, Texas, said: “Being part of the search for the next Rose of Tralee is exciting and to those considering entering, I would simply say you can’t go wrong by entering.
“Regardless of the outcome it is bound to be a fabulous time. There is so much more that happens beyond the TV show in August. It’s an opportunity for, not only the women participating in the Festival, but all women to celebrate where they come from and take pride in being strong and intelligent while having a great time.”
The 2014 Rose of Tralee will drive away for the year in a Kia Pro_ce’ed Car packed full of jewellery and homeware products from, the Festival’s Lead Sponsor, Newbridge Silverware and a World Travel Prize valued at €25,000 sponsored by Dublin Airport Authority.
The Antrim Rose selection will take place on Sunday 13th April in the Belfast Hilton Hotel. Full details on how to enter the 2014 Antrim Rose of Tralee Selection can do so by contacting www.roseoftralee.ie or email email@example.com.
