The 2015 International Rose of Tralee tour comes to Roscommon town next Thursday 13th August for first time ever to Roscommon.
This is part of their Irish tour before they arrive in Tralee for the dome TV nights.
The 32 roses along with current rose Maria Walsh and Roscommon Rose Sarah Murphy will all be here to meet and sign autographs.
The tour bus will arrive at the Roscommon Park/Castle at approximately 11.30am for two hours where they will meet the public and have a tour of the castle. Patrons will also be entertained by Emerald Storm and sample food, beer and see lots from local Roscommon businesses.
Anyone who would like to help can contact Roscommon Rose centre. A first for the roses they will each get the chance to sheer sheep which will attract a lot from our national and local press.
The Roscommon Rose centre are delighted to have secured this visit for Roscommon town and for all the sponsors including our main sponsor Callington Ltd who help make Roscommon Rose possible each year. We may not be in Tralee this year but we will certainly put Roscommon on the map.
There will be a lot of national local press and TV will be in town on the morning. Everyone is welcome to come along and meet all the roses. Children can dress up in little bow peep if they wish!
Thanks from Roscommon Rose centre committee to all who are helping us with our plans for the tour. See you all Thursday next week at 11.30am.
