Long Night at the Roses

 I’m just back in Dingle after a long night at the Rose of Tralee. Congrats to all the Roses and especially Aoife Kelly, the Tipperary Rose, who was the bookie’s favourite and was indeed crowned the Rose on the night.

We were there selling ice cream, with proceeds going to the festival, and I have to say my favourite roses were our own three (photo below), who moved a mountain of ice cream with smiles and good cheer. And just look at their classy headgear!

Anyway, it was good fun, and we did have a captive audience as we were the only food (or drink) to be had in the dome. Now, I’m off to bed!

    Looks like a fabulous night! My mother and father in law were on holiday near Dingle and were singing your praises – particularly thrilled to be able to eat the icecream in the comfort of the cafe looking out on the wild weather.

    Hi Kieran, was great to meet you last night at the festival and taste some of the delicious Champagne Sorbet!! Was delicious and well needed with the heat inside the dome last night. Really enjoyed the Rose experience, was there to support Triona O’Connor the Rose of Roscommon or the Rubix Rose as we like to call her!

    Are those hats for sale? Who came up with that? You might have missed your calling in the fashion world.
