If you have always dreamt of being the Offaly Rose of Tralee, you should head along to an event in Tullamore this Sunday to take the first step in making that dream become a reality.
The Offaly Rose Centre team and current Offaly Rose Emma Kirwan will be on hand in The Bridge House Hotel at 6.30pm for a meet and greet and to answer any question those who may are thinking of entering may have.
You can bring along a friend and join the team for the evening to see what it is all about. It's not just about the 'stage', that most of us only see in August on the TV.
