ONCE again, Limerick will not be represented at this year’s Rose of Tralee final, as the Limerick Rose failed to get through the regional heat.
It is now five years since Limerick had an entrant in the final of the competition, after Suzanne O’Brien missed out at the regional finals in Portlaoise.
Journalist Ms O’Brien was among 54 Roses from Ireland, USA, Canada, Australia, Germany and Britain who were hoping to advance to the final in Tralee.
This year’s Rose of Tralee Festival will take place on August 17.
