The Rose of Tralee Festival 

The Rose of Tralee International Festival is based on the love song The Rose of Tralee, by William Mulchinock a 19th century wealthy merchant who was in love with Mary OConnor, his maid.

The Festival as it is today stems from Tralees Carnival Queen, once a thriving annual town event, fallen by the wayside due to post-war emigration. In 1958 a group of local business people met in Hartys Bar in Tralee and decided to revamp the Carnival in a way that would regenerate the town, encourage tourism and keep the race crowd in town overnight. The new event would be called a festival and the carnival queen contest turned into a celebration of the Rose of Tralee song.

The first Festival in 1959 had Roses representing Tralee, London, Dublin, Birmingham and New York.

Since 1959 the Festival has grown, incorporating centres from all over the world and is firmly established on everyones events calendar. RTÉs live coverage of the Rose selection has helped install the Festival in the national psyche, and it has remained their top rating show for many years, with up to a million people tuning in every year for the result.
