2018 Western Canada Rose of Tralee

2018 Western Canada Rose of Tralee

It is with much regret that we inform you the 2018 Western Canada Rose of Tralee will not go ahead this year and instead will be pushed over to 2019.

Along with other Rose centres, there appears to be a decline in the number of applicants. There is currently a review, by the board in Tralee, to hold the event every other year instead of yearly.  Each Centre would alternate and hold an event every other year and every centre will have the opportunity to have a live interview on RTE television.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to a more successful event in 2019.
