Arklow Hosts Rose Of Tralee Participants Ahead Of Festival

Róisín Long will represent Wicklow in this years’ 61st Rose of Tralee International Festival.  

A presentation was made to Róisín at the Maritime Museum on Tuesday evening to support her in the campaign to become the 2022 Rose of Tralee.  

Róisin showed her fellow Roses around the Garden County visiting Powerscourt Gardens, Glendalough, and the Beyond the Trees attraction at Avondale after which they stopped off to make and decorate cup cakes with edible flowers at Catherine Fulvio’s Ballyknocken House Cookery School.  

There were smiles on the Rose Tour bus as it travelled down the Main Street and Róisín’ friends, family and supporters turned out to welcome her.
